CapRock Communications Celebrates 25th Anniversary

Wednesday, April 12, 2006
For CapRock Communications April 2006 marks an important milestone in the company's history - its 25th anniversary. Founded in 1981 to meet the communications requirements of the Gulf of Mexico oil industry, the company has seen tremendous growth and expansion since its inception, and now has offices and service centers in seven countries around the world, and customers in six global markets including energy, maritime, mining, disaster recovery and government. During this time, CapRock has seen the launch of its pioneering IPxpress(TM) network architecture which makes it possible for customers to use a singe Internet Protocol-based satellite network to place a call, connect to their corporate networks or use the Internet from virtually any remote location in the world - be it an oil rig 200 miles offshore in the Gulf of Mexico or a mining operation in the wilds of Indonesia. The global satellite communications provider has also grown significantly in the past quarter of a century, more than tripling in revenue and employees in just the last five years. CapRock also has significantly expanded its technology infrastructure and now offers its broadband satellite communications services worldwide to customers in North and South America, Africa, the Middle East and Asia-Pacific, as well as to most of the world's oceans. "We expect the next 25 years in the industry to be just as eventful as the last," said CapRock CEO Peter Shaper, "and we plan to continue expanding to meet the needs of our global customer base well into the future."
