VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/14 -- Metrie, the largest manufacturer of interior finishings in North America, announced today the launch of Metrie2 - Made to Measure - a first-of-its-kind division dedicated to providing custom trim and millwork design solutions, and industry-leading service to the hospitality industry and multi-dwelling unit developers.
"Metrie2 offers exceptional choices and flexibility to our hospitality and residential high-rise clients, while also removing the hassle of sourcing products from various suppliers - saving time in selection and installation," says Mimi Goldman, Vice President of Contract for Metrie2.
Combining heritage, quality and service, Metrie2 is the first company in North America to present the hospitality industry and multi-dwelling unit developers a one-stop-shop for trim and millwork with a trained staff of designers and product experts. Metrie2 offers interior finishings solutions, assistance and support at every step, from rendering to jobsite. Another strength of the company is its domestic manufacturing base, with hardwood, softwood, and MDF and specialized plants located throughout North America.
"This new division of Metrie serves as a hub for unique and innovative design ideas allowing contractors, designers and architects to select their trim and interior finishings from coordinated collections or create custom solutions to help make their design visions possible," says Goldman.
Clients can choose to create custom shapes from a wide range of wood species and materials, select from more than 5,000 individual architectural mouldings and access Metrie's Then & Now Finishing Collections. Each coordinated design collection is inspired by a different architectural style and blends elements of modern and classic design. The collections include:
Metrie2 will be unveiled at an innovative exhibit at this year's The Hospitality Design Exposition & Conference show in Las Vegas. The exhibit will be located at booth 2883 from May 14 - 16.
Since 1926, Metrie has committed to creating high-quality, finely crafted architectural elements, which has allowed them to become the largest supplier and manufacturer of solid wood and composite mouldings in North America. Previous high profile projects within the hospitality industry have included: Marriott Hotels & Resorts, Vancouver Convention Centre, Waldorf Astoria Hotels & Resorts, Caesars Palace Las Vegas, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, and The Ritz-Carlton.

But our innovative design and commitment to fine craftsmanship have helped us expand operations to include eight solid wood and MDF manufacturing facilities, plus 26 distribution centers in the U.S. and Canada. Our legacy has grown to include more than 5,000 moulding profiles and products manufactured in an environmentally responsible and sustainable manner.

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
