Chatsworth Products expands in Canada via acquisition
Chatsworth Products (CPI), a manufacturer of information and communications technology (ICT) infrastructure products and industrial enclosures, has acquired R. F. Mote Ltd., a privately-owned Canadian provider of data center racks, cabinets and enclosures.
With the addition of R. F. Mote’s portfolio and installed base, CPI 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.

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.
