Global satellite communications provider, CapRock Communications, has launched its presence in the Australian market opening a regional support centre in Perth, Western Australia.
The expansion extends CapRock's turnkey managed services to energy, maritime and mining customers operating in the region.
The Australian facility includes a regional support centre to provide local service and support.
To lead CapRock's continued growth within the region, Ian Ford has been appointed general manager of South East Asia.
Ford was previously CapRock's managing director, responsible for operations in Europe, the Middle East and Africa. In this new role, Ford will manage CapRock's strategy and growth for Australia, Indonesia and the Asia-Pacific region.
Ford said his appointment highlights CapRock's commitment to deliver consistent service around the world and furthers the company's position as a leading global provider.
CapRock's Australia facility serves as a local sales office and support centre, providing a base of operations for installation, operation and other support services. Additionally, the site includes a teleport facility for landing and interconnecting customers' voice and data traffic with networks in-country and around the world.
"The expansion into Australia is a testament to CapRock's promise that we will meet our customers wherever their operations may take them," Ford said.
With more than 25 years of experience, CapRock Communications boasts robust global infrastructure that includes five international teleports and 11 regional support centres across the US, Central and South America, Europe, West Africa and Asia Pacific.
