FONTANA, CA – Senator Norma Torres of Senate District No. 32 selected AR Tarpaulins Inc. Small Business of the Year for the 2014 California Small Business Day celebration in Sacramento. The event is set for June 16, 2014.

“Truly, our growth and success is directly tied to our team,” said Carmen Weisbart, A&R President. “Their vision, passion, and dedication are the reasons why we’ve been in business since 1976. This award belongs to them.”

The California Small Business Day celebration was established in 2000 after the California Assembly unanimously voted to salute and honor the contributions of small businesses. The 2014 event will be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento.
