122 THE DISTRIBUTOR’S LINK COMPONENTS FOR INDUSTRY YOUR WORLDWIDE PROVIDER OF COMPONENTS from page 46 To answer the question, why was CFI founded; simply put, there is no reason “why;” rather, “what.” Meaning, what idea pushed Kevin and Annie to create this company. Well, it was the desire to change the way things have been done before. To make things better. To solve a problem that this industry didn’t know it had. Relationships created CFI, relationships have grown CFI, and relationships will continue to keep CFI running and growing. Company Culture Makes The Difference Family dynamic. Three generations of Christie’s family and a small, close-knit feeling internally protrudes the company’s walls and welcomes anyone interested in coming in and staying a while. On the business end, diversity: growth internally and growth through the supply chain has kept CFI consistently competitive and vastly diverse over 30 years. In 1994, after Kevin’s second child’s birth, to help with the business’s growth and management, Kevin recruited his then-retired, ex-chemical engineer father. Ted Christie (fondly known as “Papou,” the Greek name for Grandfather) helped take the company to a new level. Taking Kevin’s streamlined communication idea and bringing it to a new level. The eagerness to help was palpable, and the customers “Papou” brought along have stayed apart of this company’s growth even 27 years later. Quality Assurance Quality Assurance means just as much to CFI as it does to their customers. They provide world-class QC service on all products. Components For Industry prides itself on its adherence to strict, established in-house quality guidelines and ISO procedures. CFI’s Quality Assurance process does not end after the inspection process.
