Essentials by CSI is a private family owned company founded in 1979 and headquartered in Mississauga, Ontario with a US office in Niagara Falls, New York.
For over 40 years, CSI has been sourcing products and developing supplier relationships overseas. As demand for masks and protective items exceeded domestic supply, Steve reached out to accredited suppliers overseas. Since CSI has the customer support, infrastructure and supply chains in place, we were able to bring protective items into North America quickly and for a reasonable price.
We will never participate in price gouging. Integrity is our backbone. We believe in doing the right thing, standing behind our promises and treating others with respect. We believe in being open, honest, and transparent with our customers, partners and employees.
CSI has over forty years of experience sourcing product from overseas for our six business units.
