AMX Importer to Canada will Distribute Global Caché Products
Jacksonville, OR USA - September 26, 2006 - Global Caché, the award winning provider of IP -enabling products for homes and businesses, announced today it has signed an agreement with Techni+Contact, exclusive distributor of AMX equipment in Canada, to sell and support Global Caché products throughout Canada.
Global Caché's flagship product, the GC -100 Network Adapter, is designed to IP -enable devices and appliances that otherwise could not be connected to a network, bringing Ethernet connectivity to infrared (IR) devices, serial (RS232) devices, and relay switches (contact closure), allowing them to be controlled using IP -based software. Global Caché also designs and manufactures IR learning devices, IR receivers, and sensors for use over networks. Techni+Contact, based in Pointe -Claire, Quebec, is a leading distributor of automation and control equipment for the Canadian custom installation market, and is the only distributor approved to distribute AMX products in Canada.
"This newly formed relationship with Techni+Contact is a direct result from our recently announced product compatibility with AMX," said Robin Ford, Global Caché VP of Business Development. "Their close and exclusive relationship with AMX, as well as their excellent dealer/installer contacts, puts them in a great spot to be successful selling our products to compliment their AMX offering. We're excited about being able to address the Canadian custom installer channel through Techni+Contact."
Claude Legault, President of Techni+Contact agreed, saying, "The fact that Global Caché products work out of the box with AMX products will be very helpful in being the winning bidder in competitive situations and is going to be a big plus for our dealer/installer channel. Now, they can stick to the AMX product that they know and love, but be even more flexible and cost -effective than before. We're pretty excited about being able to offer that kind of a combination solution."
