“I’m so honored that CASTO has been recognized on the 2020 Best Employers in Ohio. I and my partners have focused on building our team with industry leaders to take CASTO to the next level,” said Don M. Casto, III. “If I had to nominate the company based upon my fellow CASTO co-workers and peers, I would nominate the company as the ‘Best Team’. We have a group of professionals that are collaborative, innovative and entrepreneurial in spirit and that’s what makes CASTO great.”
