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.
