Suresh Sidhu, CEO of edotco Group, said: “We are honoured to receive this award from Frost & Sullivan, and are delighted to be the first company recognised in this category on the Asia Pacific level. In 2016, we were able to strengthen our geographical presence across the region, introduce innovative and sustainable engineering concepts, and also concluded our maiden private placement exercise, which saw the introduction of quality and long-term investors.

“This award is testament to the team’s efforts to deliver on our aspiration of enabling connectivity with the provision of world-class telecoms infrastructure services and solutions. I would like to dedicate this award to the team at edotco, as well as our investors and customers who believe in the value of our offerings.”
