The company has been a member of the SWCA since 2006, and Mike has been actively involved ever since. He is currently the incoming president of the Board of Directors. In December 2016, Catworks was the Grand Presenting Sponsor of the SWCA Holiday Auction. Without their sponsorship, enthusiasm, and support, the Annual Auction would not have been so successful. Thank you Mike Nieto and the entire Catworks Construction team!
