  CAPAX: Meeting the needs of a changing business environment

CAPAX is one of the largest locally owned insurance brokerage and employee benefits consulting organizations located in the Central Valley of Northern California. Capax is employee owned. Over its 50 years of continuous operations, as Giddings, Corby, Hynes, the company has grown to its present position as one of the premier U.S. retail brokers. CAPAX has earned the reputation as a nationwide leader in insurance services, and employee benefits consulting, with over 5,000 clients across our backyard and the nation. The CAPAX Companies currently has over 50 employees based in Modesto, California.

The company provides a unique combination of client services, specialized industry knowledge and focus on listening to the special needs of our clients. In addition, CAPAX provides the staff expertise, delivering service and good advice without losing the best characteristics of a local entrepreneurial professional – including direct access by clients to management, personal accountability at all levels, and a business built on long-standing personal relationships with our good clients, vendors and insurance carriers.

Here are a few of the special capabilities which set CAPAX apart:

  • Good people to do business with . . .
  • Over 100 years of successful business experience.
  • Listening to understand the special needs of each client.
  • A learning company with a culture of training and career planning for every single employee . . . talent, developing personal skills and providing opportunity in a challenging yet safe learning environment.
  • Research and development of uniquely valuable proprietary insurance and business advice for our clients (protecting them better at a better price).
  • Communicating with our client's employees to design, explain and deliver employee benefits (communicating better at a better price).
  • 24/7 service standards for claims reporting and insurance policy information for our customers.
  • Regional Disaster Preparedness. We plan to be there for you in the event of a Regional Disaster.


Although Giddings, Corby, Hynes, now part of the CAPAX Companies, was formed more than 50 years ago, our roots go back to the late 1800’s of Central California. Each generation of owners have been insurance advisors who took care of their clients the old fashioned way . . . we listen . . . person to person . . . to serve their unique needs.

Now CAPAX employs e-commerce technology – corresponds with hundreds of insurance companies, designs unique proprietary solutions for clients . . . all the old fashioned way . . . we listen . . . person to person . . . to serve our client.


CAPAX programs and services attract and serve more than 50 new clients every month. We think there is a reason for our continued growth and success . . . in today’s impersonal world, we work extra hard to learn how to listen to our clients and improve our communication of the best products and services. . .

Our goal is to recruit wonderful people, give them supportive career guidance, train to listen to our customers needs, design better financial and insurance solutions and grow our firm through our client’s shared satisfaction.
