Last night Capozza Tile & Floor Covering Center, which encompasses Old Port Specialty Tile Co. and Capozza Concrete Services, was privileged to accept the 2017 Maine Family Business Award for Large Business. This award honors an outstanding company with more than 25 employees that demonstrates excellence in all facets of business, including family involvement, succession planning, communication, value of being family owned, and community service. This is a huge honor to be nominated for this award, let alone win. The family accepted this award last night as a team unit. Having the Capozza brand recognized as a leader in the field of family owned business is the outcome of our entire staff’s hard work, compassion and dedication to our company, trade, and community and we only achieved it by being a team.
