“In recent years, we have shifted from buying finished goods overseas to sourcing core/raw cable domestically and managing end-production in-house including coil winding, printing, and packaging. This allows us to protect our dealers from unforeseen global supply shortages such as those experienced during COVID-19. This greater manufacturing control allows us to apply new innovations to further benefit installers and improve the installation experience,” said Rizzo.

“Tim brings tremendous channel and operational expertise to ICE Cable Systems. Worldwide he is the foremost expert in reel-less packaging technology and possesses deep experience in running all aspects of an organization within our industry. This is the perfect synergy,” furthered Rizzo. “Collaborating with Brian as a partner for more than a decade, I have experienced first-hand ICE Cable Systems’ continued commitment to excellence and innovation. This is especially impressive during an era of rampant cost-cutting on materials and manufacturing. I am thrilled to take on the role of COO and contribute towards an organization that shares my values of customer-centric creativity, producing the best products and doing things the right way. My new role will also free-up Brian to resume strategic direction as President. I am confident that collectively we will take ICE Cable Systems to new heights,” said Copp. Copp holds a bachelor’s degree in Entrepreneurial and Small Business Operations from Babson College and an MBA from Western Connecticut State University. He recently served as chairman of CCCA’s (Communications Cable and Connectivity Association) Compliance Committee and board member of WICSA (Wire Industry and Cable Suppliers Association).
