Canadian Electrical Industry News Week

cullitonStratford, ON - February 21, 2014:  Delivering quality and value on several high profile construction projects including the Grand River Hospital Patient Care Development – Kitchener and the Niagara Outlet Collection- Niagara-on-the-Lake; Culliton, a multi-trade contractor in Southern Ontario, has been named the “2013 SIMpull Solutions Contractor of the Year” for Ontario and Eastern Canada.

Based in Stratford, Ontario, and now in its 82nd year, Culliton is a mechanical, electrical and HVAC contractor performing construction projects of all sizes. With an impressive record of completing complex projects in healthcare, education, government, commercial and industrial buildings as well as condominium high-rise.

The award was presented to Culliton on Friday, February 21, 2014 by Southwire Canada®, a leading wire and cable manufacturer whose Canadian headquarters are in Mississauga, Ontario. Southwire® is the maker of SIMpull Solutions, an innovative portfolio of products that are designed to make wire installations easier, safer and more effective than traditional methods.

“SIMpull Solutions is all about innovation and efficiency. We wanted to recognize a contractor that has not only embraced SIMpull Solutions but one that really incorporates innovation in everything they do; and never stops looking to evolve their processes that will make them more successful,” said Axel Schlumberger, President of Southwire Canada, in presenting the award to Tim Culliton, President and CEO of Culliton.

“We are always looking for ways to improve”, said Tim Culliton, “We have a culture gripped by pride to deliver quality and value to our customer.”

“We look for manufacturers that are innovative and willing to work with us to give us pre-fabricated solutions, such as SIMpull Solutions, that will save us a great deal of time and money in the field and make us better able to deliver projects on schedule”, said Ted Lange, Chief Operating Officer at Culliton.

“By using solutions such as SIMpull, we can control and standardize our work better. It’s given us the confidence to go after large scale, fast paced electrical projects, outside of our local home area,” said Culliton.  While their work might be reaching well beyond their Stratford office, they are still very much a part of their community. One of the most visible community support initiatives of the company is that  the past 39 years, Culliton has been the proud team sponsor of the Stratford Cullitons Junior B Hockey team – one of the provinces most successful Junior Hockey Teams.

“Culliton has proven to be a strong partner for us.  They don’t just take the solutions as we present them but they work with us, giving us feedback on new products and sometimes they customize it to make it work for them,”  said Schlumberger.  “It’s that constant drive to be better; that willingness to take a risk on something new that sets them apart and makes them such a great successful, Canadian business.”

Cloud

There has been a lot of talk about cloud computing and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) models these days but both are relatively new to the lighting industry. Let’s take a look at what they are as well as their roles in commercial lighting.

What is cloud computing?

Cloud computing is the on-demand delivery of compute power, database storage, and applications via the Internet with pay-as-you-go or subscription-based pricing. Cloud computing means that instead of all the computer hardware, software, and data that you are using sitting somewhere inside your company’s network, it’s provided and managed for you as a service by another company and you access it over the Internet.
