Redwood Systems, the leading provider of building-performance lighting solutions, today announced that it has established a presence in the Canadian market by securing partnerships with national technology distributor Anixter and sales agencies TPL Lighting and CD/M2 Lightworks. Redwood has also received UL Canada certification of its products. Redwood is now well positioned to address the increasing need for building-performance lighting technologies in Canada.

Redwood has used its global agreement with Anixter, a leading global supplier of communications and security products, electrical and electronic wire and cable, fasteners and other small components, to secure distribution in Canada. The agreement provides Redwood with access to Anixter’s well established Canadian network of salespeople, technical resources and customers.

In addition, Redwood’s partnership with sales agencies and dealers across the country open up a host of new growth opportunities.
