Following its successful seven year relationship with EPCOS, Gateway Electronic Components Ltd – a leading independent franchised distributor – has secured a strategic agreement with TDK to distribute its range of innovative EPCOS and TDK products in the UK. Through the combination of EPCOS with the electronic components business of TDK, Gateway has been selected to carry the full range of components from the manufacturer due to its long standing relationship with EPCOS and the value it brings to customers within this arena. Customers now have the option to purchase the full range through the distributor, who is building a solid reputation both in terms of customer service and value added supply chain solutions.
Gateway is currently making a major investment in its stock profile of EPCOS and TDK products to ensure it is ready to respond to customer requirements. Investment in increased stock levels is being made in film and aluminium electrolytic capacitors, including pulse and suppression components; RF components, including SAW filters; current and voltage protection devices; sensors, piezo products, and thermistors.
Martin Ford Managing Director of Gateway components said “This extension to our franchise is a recognition of our commitment to EPCOS over the past seven years. We have achieved growth through technical competence augmented by our capability to deliver value for money supply chain solutions for major UK based OEM and CEM organisations. The relationship has gone from strength to strength and this gives our customers even further opportunity to take advantage of the range of value added procurement services that we have a reputation for.”
“During the seven years of engagement with EPCOS products, Gateway has demonstrated technical competence, stocking commitment and innovative supply chain solutions. We are subsequently delighted to extend our agreement to include TDK products and promote our broad range of leading technology high cap MLCCs and magnetic components”, commented Peter Miller. Senior Director Distribution TDK Electronics UK.
