Aquicon started out as a family business, and while the team is much larger than it once was, we work hard to maintain a company structure where knowledge is shared and nobody is too important to be contactable.
At Aquicon, we are firm believers in promoting from within. By identifying and grooming potential leaders, we ensure smooth successions and are able to retain our wealth of institutional knowledge. Our extremely low turnover rate, and the personal bonds formed over years of working together, make us a stronger, more effective team.
