Avnet Abacus scored a win double at TE Connectivity’s distributor awards scooping up the Distributor of the Year Competitive Conversion prizes.
The Distributor of the Year award for the EMEA region is based on Avnet Abacus’ overall performance with special attention to key criteria including growth in sales and the development of new designs and projects, as well as delivering training based around the leading-edge products and technologies offered by TE.
The second award, for ‘Competitive Conversion’, has been given in recognition of Avnet Abacus’ strong success in winning new business for TE products in competition with distributors offering solutions from alternative manufacturers.
Avnet Abacus posted a record quarter in Avnet’s Q3 results released late last month, with Avnet CEO Bill Amelio highlighting “our strong execution in that part of the European market.”
“To win these two awards from the number one connectivity company in the world is a significant recognition of our capabilities and knowhow, and the contribution made across the entire Avnet Abacus team – from our engineering expertise to our skills in sales,” said Alan Jermyn, VP European Marketing at Avnet Abacus. “Not only have we expanded TE’s business in the EMEA region, but very importantly we have also delivered on our strategy to develop new opportunities in exciting and fast-growing applications in a broad range of thriving industries.”
“These awards are a clear acknowledgement of Avnet Abacus’ company-wide commitment to our products and technologies,” said Rabih Nehme, Senior Director EMEA Channel Sales at TE Connectivity. “They have put in the necessary time and resources to fully understand our products and what is required to unlock the potential offered by our advanced technologies, especially with customers working at the leading edge in a number of areas including IoT and Industry 4.0 applications.”
