“NAPA Ontario staff recognizes and has full confidence in the tremendous efforts Burlmann Construction has done for NAPA Parts in the Ontario Region. Burlmann undertook a complete renovation with a new retail presence in the auto parts market in Sudbury. They paid special attention to details, especially in the sales area, which would be in view to the public. It was a huge asset to have Peter Mashin available to us!”
