Avnet Silica has been presented with the award for the fastest growing distributor in 2018 across the EMEA region by NXP Semiconductors. The distributor won the award for achieving outstanding sales growth in 2018 by growing more than twice as much as NXP’s overall distribution business in the EMEA region.
In addition, it made important inroads in the area of demand creation, as well as driving sales in key vertical markets.
“It is with great pleasure that I bestow this award to the Avnet Silica team in recognition of its outstanding performance in 2018,” commented Olivier Cottereau, vice president sales EMEA at NXP, while attending a recent distribution event held by the company. “Each and every team member at Avnet Silica should be very proud of their contribution in achieving more than twice the market growth with NXP products.”
“This is a highly prestigious award from a top semiconductor company,” said Mario Orlandi, president at Avnet Silica. “It represents our successful and close working relationship with NXP, leveraging an extensive and leading-edge semiconductor portfolio that addresses a host of applications across many communications, automotive and industrial market sectors.”
