Avnet Abacus has lifted the award for UK Broadline Distributor of the Year 2013 from HARTING, the UK division of HARTING, the Germany-based manufacturer of electrical and electronic connectors.
The distributor’s technical service and expertise to customers throughout the UK and Ireland has led to a significant rise in sales of the HARTING range in the region over the past twelve months.
Kieron Murdock, Director of Avnet Abacus UK and Ireland, commented, “It is a given that our customers should expect the very highest levels of quality, innovation, service and manufacturing when sourcing products for their designs, and our combined offering with HARTING meets all of these prerequisites. It is particularly gratifying to be rewarded for going the extra mile to provide an exceptional standard of personal technical support.”
Karen Miller, Electronics Distribution Manager at HARTING, said, “In another challenging year for electronics distribution, Avnet Abacus continues to provide high customer service levels to their customers in the UK and Ireland due to the continued stock investment programmes in place with us as well as the technical design-in support. This has resulted in an increase in sales of the HARTING product range for 2012/2013, and strengthened Avnet’s position in our network.”
