May 2012 - Chatsworth Products Expands into the ‘Great White North’ with New Canadian Sales Office and Showroom
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif., May 2012—Already established as a global manufacturer of IT infrastructure equipment, Chatsworth Products (CPI) expanded its North American reach on May 15 with the grand opening of its first Canadian sales office and product showroom. CPI, an employee-owned company that manufactures voice, data and security products, as well as service solutions that optimize, store and secure technology equipment, hosted this company landmark under the theme, “CPI Enters the ‘Great White North.’”

Located in the Toronto suburb of Vaughan, Ontario, this new 3,800-square-foot facility marks CPI’s first brick and mortar footprint in Canada with a sales office that includes a conference room equipped for product training sessions, and the facility’s centerpiece, a state-of-the-art product showroom. Outfitted with a raised floor, TeraFrame® Cabinets, GlobalFrame® Cabinets, PDUs, Evolution® Cable Management and OnTrac® Wire Mesh Cable Tray and Runway, visitors are given a true sense of CPI Products as they would appear in an actual data center.

“The quality of the facility is first class and very professional,” said Stew Munns, CPI’s National Sales Manager for Canada. “The environment is unique in the sense of having a raised floor data center showroom. Customers really appreciate the experience of being able to see a product as it would live in its natural environment.”

CPI’s newest Aisle Containment Solution can also be found in the product showroom, offering Canada’s IT professionals a first-hand glimpse into the company’s global reputation as innovators in thermal management and airflow solutions for data centers.

“There’s been a lot more market awareness of energy efficiency and air isolation issues,” said Munns. “Customers at large are looking for professionals that are experienced in designing for those efficiencies. We’ve led the pack in pioneering those types of technologies and customers appreciate our product quality, engineering, technical support and analysis of that space. They trust us and appreciate our experience when it comes to that technology.”

Aisle Containment was certainly the most popular attraction among those attending the open house, which included a jubilant crowd of customers, media, CPI’s Executive Management Team and all four members of CPI’s Canadian sales team. Led by Munns as the National Sales Manager, the Canadian team also includes Dave Wood, Regional Sales Manager for Ontario and the Maritimes, Colin May, Regional Sales Manager for Western Canada, and Colleen Birnie, Office Administrator.

“The most important investment CPI has made to date in Canada is in the local, in-country CPI employee-owners,” said Larry Renaud, CPI President and CEO. “We are very proud of the team that we have in Canada. We are pleased to have completed the additional investment in a new Canadian sales office and product showroom to further support the Canadian sales team’s efforts in responding to IT Infrastructure growth opportunities in the Canadian market.”

CPI’s Canadian team has also been busy in recent weeks preparing for the Data Center Power and Cooling Efficiency Seminar. With dates set in Toronto (June 5), Ottawa (June 7) and Calgary (June 12), these one-day events offer BICSI and AIA continuing education credits for airflow management, overhead power, cabling and more.

This latest open house marks the second international office opening for CPI this year, with the first occurring in Shanghai, China this past February. In addition to having its corporate office, manufacturing facilities and Research Training and Development (RD&T) in the US, CPI has sales offices in London, Dubai and Mexico City, as well as manufacturing facilities in Asia and Europe to support those regions.
