Employee-owned, CPI's innovations and competitiveness are driven by core company values and have helped it expand its market shares and distribution network to emerge a market leader.
CPI's production facilities across the United States have ensured that the company stays at the forefront of cutting-edge technology. Its innovative products and solutions, which include traditional structural support systems for organizing, storing, and securing valuable IT and communications equipment, are distributed through a global network of partners, integrators, and prime contractors.
CPI has won several patents for its numerous products. Its solutions include a wide range of rack, cabinet and enclosure systems, zone cabling and wireless enclosures, wall-mount systems, cable management, cable runway and tray, power management, electronics, monitoring and security, grounding and bonding, as well as seismic protection systems.
New CPI products result from customer requests and opportunities to co-develop products with market leaders such as Cisco, Corning Cable Systems and other high-tech equipment manufacturers.
"As end-users continue to adopt newer, faster, and denser rack-mount equipment, rack requirements vary widely, and customized solutions are becoming the norm," says Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Vishal Sapru. "Next-generation design tools are available in-house and to customers online, making the process as smooth as possible for the development team and the whole experience seamless to the customer."
By manufacturing top quality products, the company assures superior specifications for all products, and meets all Electronic Industries Alliance/Telecommunications Industry Association (EIA/TIA) standards. It also makes sure they are UL listed and the customized solutions are fully compatible with standard rack-mount equipment.
All CPI's manufacturing facilities are ISO 9001:2000 certified and its tight production controls guarantee superior-quality manufacturing. Recent market trends also suggest that new rack mount equipment should be placed in new flexible rack solutions, and CPI's sturdy racks and support systems offer customer's great flexibility and adaptability.
"Last, but not least, CPI provides heavy-duty packaging as a standard service to ensure all products arrive safely at their destinations," notes Sapru. "CPI's quick installation makes it easy for a single person to assemble an entire system with minimum tools."
CPI's credibility has been cemented with its Platinum-level corporate membership with the Building Industry Consulting Service International, Inc. (BICSI). This industry association caters to the needs of telecommunications consultants, professionals who work in the information transport systems (ITS), and executives involved with communications and associated infrastructure.
