CapRock Named One of Houston’s Top Private Companies

HOUSTON — May 31, 2005 —The Houston Chronicle has ranked CapRock Communications, a global provider of satellite communications services, as one of the top private companies headquartered in Houston. The list is based on company revenue, growth and employee base.

“This is a tremendous honor and a validation of the quality and dedication of our people,” said CapRock CEO Peter Shaper. “Our success in driving global and vertical market expansion over the past few years has enabled CapRock to become a true world-class organization. We have our sights set even higher as we look forward.”

CapRock Communications has expanded substantially over the past several years, now offering satellite communications on a worldwide basis. That tremendous expansion has allowed the company to serve clients in a variety of vertical markets with facilities in remote locations including energy, maritime, construction, mining, government and military. CapRock’s unparalleled ability to provide highly reliable “mission critical” communications even in the most remote and harsh of locations has fostered its dramatic expansion.

Founded in Houston in 1981, CapRock has grown into a global company with nearly 400 employees worldwide and teleports and international offices located in Aberdeen, Scotland, Macae, Brazil and Jakarta, Indonesia, as well as regional support offices in New Orleans and Lafayette. CapRock’s growth is exemplified by its state of the art, 62,000 square foot headquarters facility in Houston, which opened in March 2004. The building houses engineering, operations, sales and marketing, and executive/administration offices, as well as one of the company’s two 24x7 network operations centers which allows CapRock to monitor and control customer networks worldwide, 365 days a year.
