Chatsworth Products (CPI), a global manufacturer of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure products and industrial enclosures, on Feb. 7 announced that it has acquired R. F. Mote Ltd., a privately-owned Canadian provider of data center racks, cabinets and enclosures.
“The acquisition is in line with CPI’s continual growth and global expansion strategy, and we are thrilled to be combining forces with a management team that has such a long and proven history of excellence in the Canadian market,” says CPI CEO, Michael Custer.
With the addition of R. F. Mote’s portfolio and installed base, CPI says it can further address its Canadian customer base by providing locally fabricated products. By adding Canadian manufacturing and assembly capabilities in the region, CPI will be better positioned to serve the market with shorter lead times. Additionally, via the acquisition, CPI expects to realize increased opportunities for attachment of market-leading enclosure accessories such intelligent power monitoring and control, through its eConnect Power Distribution Units and electronic access control solutions.
“We are very excited to bring our two great companies together and to have R. F. Mote become part of such a highly respected industry leader that is CPI,” says R.F. Mote President, Les Mote.
Details of the deal were not disclosed, but effective immediately, R. F. Mote is a wholly owned subsidiary of CPI. Established in 1966, the Richmond Hill, Ontario, Canada, company focuses on products for the data center, telecommunications and colocation markets. Like CPI, R. F. Mote’s highly skilled and experienced workforce excels at delivering quick-turnaround, high-quality products. For more information on R.F. Mote, visit the company's website.
