CACI President of US Operations Bill Fairl said, “TechniGraphics’ strong revenue growth is a clear demonstration of their quality performance, superb leadership and highly professional workforce. The company’s culture and emphasis on their customers’ mission success makes them a perfect fit for CACI.”
