On hearing the news, Captec owner and founder, Max Toti, commented, “I’m delighted that Captec continues to be recognised for growth, innovation, and its contributions to the region’s employment and GDP.
“Captec is on a strong growth path, with a planned IPO and further acquisitions, so we continue to aim high and break new ground.”
