CYB of the Year Clarification
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 ..
