TDK has recognised Digi-Key Electronics Europe with their European Distribution Award 2018 in Gold in the high-service distribution category. This was Digi-Key’s fifth consecutive award from TDK, and Digi-Key attained the highest score in the distributor performance assessment.
“We’re honoured to receive this award as it is very well reflected in our daily activities,” said Hermann Reiter, Director, Global Strategic Business Development & Supplier Management at Digi-Key. “The Distributor Partner Award evaluates up to 1000 performance points and reflects our theme here: “A thousand things done right – every day”. This motto motivates us to strive for excellence every day. We thank the TDK team for this 5th consecutive award and our customers for their daily trust.”
“Digi-Key is one of our largest distribution partners, and this award is a reflection of their extreme hard work in achieving the highest score to date in our performance assessment,” said Ludger Trockel, President and Managing Director of TDK Europe GmbH. “We look forward to continuing to work together to provide customers with our high-quality products and exceed expectations.”
The awards are based on TDK’s annual Senten Manten distributor performance evaluation program. The Japanese term, Senten Manten, stands for the perfect result, with a maximum of 1,000 points available. Distributors are assessed on performance and collaboration with TDK in four categories: business performance, inventory management, contractual terms, and operational excellence.
