100% Employee-Owned Company

CPI began in 1991 when 90 employees joined together and bought out a portion of the Dracon Division of Harris Corp. using an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). With deregulation in the telecommunications industry and technological innovation in voice and data equipment, CPI focused on the explosive needs of the information technology market to manage IT infrastructure equipment.

Employee ownership was the logical choice for the staff of CPI because involvement in the overall destiny of the company was in place at every level from the beginning. Through the ESOP structure, all employees become beneficial owners. Such ownership, combined with CPI's inclusive and participatory culture, motivate employees to think and act like owners, creating a strong commitment to the attainment of an ultimate and core purpose: delighting the customer.

As CPI enters its fourth decade as an ESOP company, we reflect with a sense of gratitude and pride at the success and growth we have experienced during our first three decades. Fueled by employee ownership, we have grown from a single location serving the domestic U.S. market, to a global company serving international customers from locations in Simi Valley, Calif; Georgetown and Round Rock, Texas; New Bern, N.C.; Toronto; Mexico City, Mexico; Buckinghamshire, England; Pudong, Shanghai; Dubai, United Arab Emirates; and Doha, Qatar.

Core Values

Central to the company’s success has been the establishment of our unified Core Values:

  • Forthright, ethical, and socially responsible
  • Employee ownership: shared risks, responsibility, accountability and rewards
  • Quality in all aspects of the company
  • Adding value through people
  • Teamwork, caring and commitment
  • We’re all in this together – mutual trust and respect
