Dorval, Quebec, September 8, 2016SFM is pleased to announce its appointment as a distributor of Remote Technologies Inc. (RTI) for Canada. RTI is a leading control systems manufacturer offering innovative, sophisticated, and user-friendly devices for professionally installed electronic systems. Effective September 15, 2016, SFM will be responsible for growing RTI in the residential, commercial AV, and hospitality markets throughout Canada.

“We’re excited to partner with SFM in Canada and the potential growth opportunities this new relationship will bring while furthering our commitment to serving our dealers,” said Mike Everett, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Americas, for RTI and Pro Control. “SFM’s professional, customer-focused sales staff, marketing team, and service department will be a huge advantage to integrators — providing top-notch service and support.”

Sans titre“RTI not only represents quality product but also quality people which is important to everyone here at SFM. We are proud to have been selected as their distributor. We look forward to working closely with Mike Everett and the entire RTI team to grow the brand in Canada,” said Steven Freytag, General Manager of SFM’s Custom Installation division. “RTI will be a primary focus for our team as the brand integrates well with many of our existing brands; Just Add Power, IC Realtime, Nest and Luxul on the residential side and Symetrix on the commercial AV side of our business. We also love the fact that the drivers for many of these brands are readily available through the dealer section of the RTI website. RTI provides us with product that can control today’s complex home automation and commercial AV systems,” continued Freytag.

SFM’s Technical Application Group will be receiving training in the coming weeks and will soon be able to assist dealers and integrators with system design and authentication. “Our talented team will be able to review system design and confirm the system as designed or recommend changes which is a great additional service for our customers,” said Freytag.

Furthermore, dealers and integrators will now have access to service in Canada as SFM will act as the RTI service department for all RTI products sold by SFM. “Our service department is second to none and can turn in-warranty and out-of-warranty repairs around in a matter of days. Our service department is an added-value service we offer customers and vendors and one that we are very proud of,” stated Freytag.
