Technical distributor Future Electronics today promised to bring new higher standards of technical and supply-chain service to OEM buyers of power components and modules with the launch of its latest specialist division, Future Power Solutions.
Future Power Solutions has been organised to offer in-depth, specialist technical and market understanding of power technology, while drawing on the global supply-chain capabilities of its parent business, Future Electronics. It will sell a broad range of discrete power components, power modules, and standard and configurable power supplies to customers, starting immediately in the EMEA region. It will also develop and produce custom power solutions via its System Design Centres.
Future Power Solutions employs dedicated applications engineers and business development staff serving key customers. These specialists, who can draw on many years of experience in applying advanced power technologies in electronics and electrical systems, are organised regionally.
At the same time, the division’s resources are available to support local Future Electronics branches that have customers with advanced or specialist power requirements.
At launch, Future Power Solutions has a comprehensive line-up of franchised suppliers of discrete components, modules and brick power supplies. In line with Future Electronics’ policy of investing in inventory, extensive stocks of franchised suppliers’ products will be available for next-day delivery from distribution centres in Memphis (North America), Leipzig (EMEA) and Singapore (Asia).
Andy Gales, VP of European Sales at Vicor, a franchised supplier to Future Power Solutions, said: ‘Vicor Corporation is delighted to be a launch partner of the new Future Power Solutions. Through Vicor’s FAE Certification Program, Future Electronics has demonstrated its breadth and depth of technical knowledge and understanding of power electronics and strength in understanding advanced power architectures and topologies. We are confident that Vicor customers will benefit from an informed and highly responsive service through this new organisation.’
Steve Carr, Technical and Vertical Markets Director at Future Electronics, said: ‘The market for OEM power supplies, both in terms of distributors and device manufacturers, is highly fragmented. That means there is space for Future Electronics, a global distributor with world-class capabilities in applications engineering, inventory management and logistics, to match small specialist suppliers’ technical capabilities while providing superior supply-chain service and global reach.’
Future Power Solutions is operating in the EMEA region now.
