Radix was recognized for expanding its engineering, software, and OT/IT consulting business into new markets.

“To start a business in the U.S., where competition is strong, companies must be exceptional,” says Cid Silveira, BRATECC executive director. "Radix’ outstanding technology has been vital to their success. Since establishing a U.S. presence in 2013, Radix Engineering has grown substantially, adding transportation, pulp and paper and educational projects to its oil and gas and chemicals core business. Radix has been a key partner with BRATECC in strategizing how to grow its business in the U.S.”
