TORONTO, CANADA, July 22, 2008 – FOR-A Canada is celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. When first founded, the business of FOR-A America had been thriving in the U.S. and a sales network and relationships with video dealers in major cities such as Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa were established to satisfy demand in the Canadian market. “FOR-A Canada excels in understanding our client’s needs and specifically meeting them. We pride ourselves on building solid relationships by taking good care of our clients, taking the time to understand their applications and go the extra mile to ensure everything will work together,� Andrew Alexander, Vice President of FOR-A Canada for the past nine years. “Our success is due largely in part to our detailed understanding of the Canada market and our reputation for providing reliable, high-quality solutions.� FOR-A Canada’s early strength centered on time base correctors and high-end CCTV equipment, but shifted to better satisfy the broadcast, production and corporate video markets with powerful switchers, frame-rate converters and a variety of remote and fixed studio solutions.
