Avnet Abacus Scoops NIC European Distributor of the Year Award
Avnet Abacus today announced that it has been named as European Distributor of the Year by NIC Components Corp., a major global supplier of passive components.
Award finalists were considered based on a number of criteria including sales growth, operational excellence, joint visit activity, sales and marketing co-operation and design registration. This is the second year in which NIC has made the award, which is based on inputs from all departments at NIC Europe.
Commenting, Roger Addison, NIC Components Distribution Sales Manager for EMEA said, “Our award reflects excellence over the past year in all the areas that are key to NIC’s development in Europe. During a particularly challenging year for the industry, Alan Jermyn and the Avnet Abacus team (previously Avnet Time) have focussed strongly on design-in activity and sales growth and very much deserve this success. Avnet Abacus has successfully integrated two organisations to create a new force in pan-European distribution, delivering a first-class product and service package across the region. We congratulate them on their success and look forward to a strong and long term partnership with Avnet Abacus going forward.”
Alan Jermyn, vice president of marketing at Avnet Abacus responded, saying, “NIC Components is a significant supplier with a broad product portfolio including capacitive, resistive and inductor component solutions, and we are proud to achieve this very significant award from them in a year which has been exciting for us and tough for the industry as a whole. NIC’s strong focus on sampling in support of design within key markets is a crucial market differentiator which has already proved to be successful.”
