Chatsworth Products (CPI) & Pemsa Cable Management have been recognized by the annual Cabling Installation & Maintenance (CI&M) Innovators Awards with two Gold awards in two different categories: Distribution and Routing Equipment, and Applications and Case Studies.


These awards come for the company’s forward-thinking approach to solving unique challenges in edge networking.


In the first category, CPI was recognized by its role as the exclusive supplier of the UL® Listed Pemsa® Rejiband® Wire Mesh Cable Tray in the United States and Canada, and more specifically, the tray’s availability in an innovative and proprietary BLACK C8® finish that provides high corrosion resistance almost equivalent to that of stainless steel, making it a cost-effective finish to support edge applications.


Pemsa Rejiband Wire Mesh Cable Tray features include:

  • High corrosion resistance
  • Electrical continuity
  • Aesthetic appearance
  • Minimized risk of zinc whiskers


“This award demonstrates how innovation is achieved in a variety of ways. In this instance, it was a partnership between CPI and Pemsa that brought the innovative and exclusive BLACK C8 finish, available on our Pemsa Rejiband Wire Mesh Cable Tray, to the United States and Canadian markets. Its high corrosion resistance and surface conductivity bring a tremendous amount of flexibility and value to a broad range of indoor and outdoor applications. We are honored to be recognized as an innovator by CI&M,” says Duke Robertson, CPI Sr. Product Manager of Cabinet & Thermal Solutions.


CPI’s second award comes in the Applications and Case Studies category, CPI was recognized for demonstrating how an online food services company successfully extended its network to a manufacturing environment without giving up valuable floor space.


The 2019 Innovators Awards Ceremony took place on Oct. 1, on-site at the BICSI Fall Conference & Exhibition in Las Vegas.
