John and Helen Nicolaou established Ace Architectural Millwork in 1995, manufacturing residential kitchens and taking on small commercial projects.

Today, the company specializes in cosmetic fixtures, display cases and airport finishing—and has completed work in almost every major airport in the Americas. The Richmond Chamber of Commerce has now recognized the company for its success and growth with a Business Award (26-75 employees) at the Business Excellence Awards.

“I’d like to dedicate this to all my hardworking staff. Without them, none of this would be possible,” said John Nicolaou in accepting the award Wednesday.

Nicolaou also paid tribute to the women who shop for luxurious brands—often housed in display cases designed by Ace.

“Keep on shopping, and maybe next year we’ll be nominated for 76+ employees.”

Ace is now based at a 39,000-square-foot state-of-the-art facility on Dyke Road.

Also nominated: Richmond Steel Recycling Ltd., Soo Jerky Ltd.
