Duro-Last Project & Contractor of the Year Awards

Duro-Last, Inc.’s annual National Sales Seminar, held in San Antonio, Texas earlier this year, welcomed more than 1,300 guests representing over 200 companies. The highly-anticipated event, which also served as the official kickoff to Duro-Last’s year-long 40th Anniversary celebration, honored multiple contractors for their outstanding dedication and workmanship over the past year.
