Located in the Toronto suburb of Vaughan, Ont., this 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 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 sense of CPI Products as they would appear in an actual data centre.
 
“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.”
 
“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.

CPI is headquartered in Westlake Village, Calif. It also has offices in the U.K., Dubai, China and Mexico.
