The successful autumn 2018 season for Capax continues. This October, after exhibiting at the Monaco Yacht Show and receiving the Gold plaque in the category of the best small companies in 2017 from the Regional Chamber of Commerce of Sibenik-Knin County, its third time winning this award, the company presented its new service facilities and headquarters.
The new 900 square meter facility includes new offices and a large, new service workshop and the only In-Service Oil Analysis Laboratory in the region. Capax was already perfectly equipped for videoscopy, ultra-sonic measurements, analysis of vibrations and thermography, but now with the new In-Service Oil Analysis Laboratory in Sibenik, Capax is equipped to provide complete, specialized diagnostic services. These services open the door to new markets, such as work vessels, construction equipment, train locomotives, windmills, etc.
The total investment is valued at approximately EUR 2.1 million, including EUR 750,000 in grants from the EU regional development funds.
The company performs refitting works at the Service Center Trogir (SCT) which is part of the Trogir Shipyard. Together with SCT, Capax has jointly founded Adria Docks Ltd., a company specialized in project management, work process optimisation and quality control. As a part of the planned long-term collaboration, Capax’s second investment - the 4,500 HP (3,344 kW) Water Brake Dynamometer – is now operational at the SCT premises in Trogir, covering about 250 square metres.
Capax celebrated the successful and timely completion of the investment cycle at the opening ceremony, where numerous partners, clients and friends visited the new headquarters and enjoyed a fun and pleasant evening with the proud founders and dedicated Capax employees.
