About CPI

Chatsworth Products (CPI) is a global manufacturer of products and solutions that protect your ever-growing investment in information and communications technology for IT and industrial automation applications. We act as your business partner and are uniquely prepared to respond to your requirements with global availability and rapid product customization, giving you a competitive advantage. With decades of experience engineering thermal, power and cable management solutions for the data center, enterprise networking and industrial enclosure markets, CPI is well positioned to provide you with unequaled application expertise, customer service and technical support, and a global network of industry-leading distributors. 

CPI began in 1991 when 90 employees joined together and bought out the Dracon Division of Harris Corp. using an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). With deregulation in the telecommunications industry and technological innovation in voice and data equipment, CPI focused on the explosive needs of the information technology market to manage IT infrastructure equipment.

Employee ownership was the logical choice for the staff of CPI because involvement in the overall destiny of the company was in place at every level from the beginning. Through the ESOP structure, all employees become beneficial owners. Such ownership, combined with CPI's inclusive and participatory culture, motivate employees to think and act like owners, creating a strong commitment to the attainment of an ultimate and core purpose: delighting the customer.

As CPI prepares to enter its third decade as an ESOP company, we reflect with a sense of gratitude and pride at the success and growth we have experienced during our first two decades. Fueled by employee ownership, we have grown from a single location serving the domestic U.S. market, to a global company serving international customers from locations in Agoura Hills and Chatsworth, Calif; Georgetown, Texas; New Bern, N.C.; Toronto; Mexico City; Buckinghamshire, England; Pudong, Shanghai; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.

Central to the company’s success has been the establishment of our unified Core Values:

We conduct our business in strict compliance with applicable laws, rules and regulations, with honestly and integrity and with a strong commitment to the highest standards of business ethics.

CPI's Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP) structure means that all employees become beneficial owners. This motivates us to think and act like owners, creating a strong commitment to attaining out core purpose: delighting the customer.

CPI is commited to being a company of the highest quality in every aspect of its business: Quality Products, Quality Services and most of all... Quality People.

We provide an environment in which all CPI employee-owners are personally involved in establishing and achieving quality goals, while also wokring with trusted partners who share our commitment to customer satisfaction.

Employee ownership is central to the success of CPI. Employee owners deliver quality through teamwork, caring and commitment, which are extended to customers through our solutions and services.

We desire for every relationship, whether it's employee-to-customer or employee-to-employee, to be founded upon mutal trust and respect—it's the only way to achieve our common goal.
