The newly formed relationship underscores FSR’s commitment "to bring exceptional sales, marketing and technical support to its Canadian market-base by partnering with a company rich in resources and proficient in electrical, IT and cabling applications," the company said in a statement.
Toronto-based SOS Group is known for its portfolio comprised of best-of-breed audio, video and data communications products.
SOS will focus on distributing FSR’s popular infrastructure product lines, which include the company’s flagship floor, wall, table and ceiling boxes; as well as its comprehensive series of power, connectivity and cable management solutions – which FSR noted are "a perfect fit for the rep group [which] specializes in fiber-optic and copper communication cables and associated accessories."
SOS’s sales region will include all of Canada, excluding Alberta, Yukon and the Northwest Territories.
