Sielox Strengthens Canadian Presence with Two New Rep Firms

Sielox LLC is continuing to strengthen its international market leadership with the appointment of two new Canadian rep organizations. Joining the team are Connsec Products (Connected Security Products Inc.) and IAVI Canada. Both firms will carry the full line of Sielox solutions including its industry-leading Pinnacle software suite and the innovative Sielox Class (Crisis Lockdown Alert Status System).

“We are extremely pleased and excited to have Connsec Products and IAVI Canada representing Sielox’s solutions in the Canadian security and education markets,” said Karen Evans, president and CEO, Sielox LLC. “These experienced and field-savvy rep firms will help ensure our growth in a very large and dynamic marketplace where we have an established customer base.”

Located in suburban Toronto, Ontario, Connsec Products is responsible for sales activities in the Eastern Canadian Provinces of Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island and Newfoundland. IAVI Canada is headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia and is responsible for sales activities in the Western Canadian Provinces of Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and British Columbia.

Connsec Products is a nationally incorporated company that represents manufacturers in the audio visual, security and machine vision industries. They will provide Sielox’s state of the art access control and crisis management solutions to Business Partners, consultants, A&Es and end users. Connsec Products additionally offers technical support, training and more than 20 years of sales and marketing experience.

“Sielox is a world-class supplier of card access solutions and a world-class provider of customer service,” said Brian Hachey, owner, Connsec Products. “These are two of the things we look for when we partner with a supplier, and Sielox encompasses both.”

IAVI Canada is a source for distribution of professional audio video products and logistics services in Canada. Through their expertise in sales and marketing, they have been able to effectively bridge the gap between manufacturers and resellers.

“We look forward to offering the outstanding suite of Sielox solutions to our customers in Canada,” said Andy Grewal, marketing manager, IAVI Canada. “Our experience and talented team make us the ideal partner to further promote and grow the Sielox brand in Western Canada.”

In addition to Sielox’s Pinnacle software suite, 32-bit controllers, readers, proximity access control cards and devices designed for professional security applications, the new rep firms will also represent Sielox Class. Designed initially for the education market, Sielox Class is also proving to be a highly effective resource to issue alerts and best manage threatening situations and daily incidents on campuses and in any facility across a range of markets. Sielox Class provides real-time room status, updates and notifications to administrators and first responders through the use of graphical maps, email and text messaging to assist in making split-second decisions.
