Get Started

To get a good idea of what you are looking for we will first start by setting up a no-fee consultation to discuss the scope, objectives, and requirements of your project. No matter how small or complicated, CPI is always willing to assist. Contact us directly today to book an appointment.


Based on your design objectives, CPI will develop a conceptual design for your review along with estimates for resource and time allocation. With approval, CPI will proceed with full design and development activities including CAD drawings, and parts and labour sourcing. Transparency is key, and you can be as involved as you would like in the design process. With over decades of experience in fluids, mechanics, electrical, and control, CPI only delivers optimal designs while respecting time and cost constraints.


In our dual role as a parts distributor, CPI is able to find you the best value parts for your project. Not only do we carry thousands of products in stock; but for more specialized parts and labour, we are able to leverage our network as a supplier to find that rare part essential to your design.


Staffed with experienced craftsmen and equipped with a full machine shop, CPI is able to fabricate just about any design. From CNC milling to laser engraving we have the tools and the knowledge bring your drawings from paper to reality. Read more about our capabilities here.
