February 4, 2013 – LANshack.com, an online distributor of datacom products—such as copper cabling hardware, fiber optic cable assemblies, tools and testers—marks its 15th year in the structured cabling industry. LANshack.com sells datacom products to companies in over 50 different countries and provides solutions for the government, military, Fortune 500, academic, municipal, private and consumer sectors.

“Whether the purchase is for a large government project or a DIY consumer installing a home network, our commitment to offering quality products and our attention to customer service is the same. Those are the two most important factors that have made the business successful and allowed us to prosper for 15 years during some very tough economic times,” said Tony Casazza, founder and president.

Plans are in place to celebrate this milestone during the coming year with new features throughout the business, starting with a redesigned fourth generation website that was recently launched. The upgraded site includes new features to help users select and purchase network cabling infrastructure products, expanded informational offerings, and a quote generation system.

With his experience as an installer himself, Casazza says he takes using best practices seriously and follows through by providing “how-to” instructions for installers. LANshack has increased its video library on installation practices and plans to add to it throughout the anniversary year. The instructional videos can be accessed on the LANshack.com homepage or directly from LANshack.com’s YouTube page.

“As I look forward, I can predict a bright and solid future. We will, of course, still work on the tried and true principles of longevity through diligence, but we will surely keep our fingers on the pulse of our industry and continue to grow our website in ways that not only educate our customers, but also educate us,” he said. “We will have tech tips and an improved newsletter, a bevy of technical articles continuously being added, and a timely intriguing blog. We will adapt with the changes within the market to continue to be an industry leader.”
