Farnell, the leading multi-channel distributor, has won the 2009 EMEA Distributor of the Year award from Crydom, the world leading manufacturer of solid state relays. The award recognises the significant European sales growth achieved by Farnell in what was a challenging year for the electronics industry.
Crydom also noted the successful collaboration between the two companies on element14 – Farnell’s technology portal and eCommunity for electronic design engineers – and its support on new product introductions.
Farnell offers over 400 product lines from Crydom’s comprehensive range that includes PCB, panel mount and DIN Rail mount solid state relays in AC and DC. Comprehensive technical data on all the products, coupled with the discussion forums provided by element14, helps potential users of Crydom products select the optimum device for their application quickly and easily.
Steve Hallgate, Farnell’s Senior Product Manager, EMCO, said: “Farnell continues to add a unique extra dimension to the way in which we are able to support our design engineering customers and at the same time showcasing the very best in new products and technologies from our suppliers. The award from Crydom underlines the success of these relationships and their effect on business levels”.
“This award represents a major landmark in the relationship between Crydom and Farnell,” said Albert Vazquez, Managing Director, Crydom SSR Limited. “Farnell has a great understanding of our product offering and has all the right tools and support to take them to market effectively”.
