re Jenex Builders Inc
KIrk Roe of Home Hardware (Business of the Year winner 2012) called to tell us we have listed Mr Wayne Harris Jenex business name incorrectly - he tells us it should be Jenex Builders Inc vs Jenex Contracting Ltd. Sorry about that!
We will update our webpages and info accordingly ..
