Ross Scott from Camozzi said; “This award is to recognize HJ Weir’s achievement in sales and growth over the last twelve months. Both HJ Weir and Camozzi are family run businesses and as such, I’ve found that we both share the same ethos when it comes to family orientated business values and integrity.
