In 2012 Capital significantly increased turnover and staff numbers following a series of major public and private sector contract wins. The company also trained a number of young people through its long-standing SVQ apprenticeship schemes as well as taking on four trainees under the Edinburgh Guarantee initiative.
The business also won a prestigious award for the high level and quality of its services to end users in the Scottish public sector. Capital collected the Best Service Award at the Government Opportunities (GO) Awards Scotland.
Additionally, the office equipment specialist recently announced the acquisition of an Inverness-based business, Highland Office Equipment, increasing its number of staff to 200 and bolstering the expanded company’s turnover to in excess of £20m.
Tom Flockhart, Founder and Managing Director of Capital Document Solutions, said: “It was a wonderful occasion and I was delighted that so many of our colleagues were able to make it. We’ve long held the view that our people are crucial to the success of the company, particularly those members of staff who have been with us for so many years.”
