Last night, we as a team went to the 2015 Sault Ste. Marie Chamber of Commerce Business Awards Dinner. A few weeks prior, a small team from SSMCOC visited our office, talked to Jeff about Cavera Inc.’s success and why we’re winning the Business Development Award this year.
We incorporated in 2012, received a Marketing Award in 2013, hired 3 new employees, moved downtown, and rebranded all within 2014 and 2015. Through all of it, we’ve been expanding our services, making new connections, and working hard to be better in all aspects of business.
This year’s event was a big success!
We were honoured to be listed among such a fantastic group of businesses and organizations. Congratulations to this year’s winners!
