Harwin names Abacus Pan-European “Distributor of the Year”
High-reliability interconnect company Harwin has named Abacus Group plc as Pan-European Distributor of the Year, citing “outstanding commitment” as the differentiating factor which resulted in the Newbury UK-headquartered company being given the award.
Abacus Group plc is one of the leading distributors of electronic components in Europe, with directly-owned group companies in every major European electronics market. Commented Andrew McQuilken, Harwin’s MD: “Abacus has been a vital part of our distribution network for many years, providing exemplary customer service through a wide number of regional offices in the UK, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Benelux, and Scandinavia. They have demonstrated very high levels of focus in taking our new and existing product portfolio to market and we are delighted to name them Pan-European Distributor of the Year.”
Replied Michelle Burns, Product Manager Emech at Abacus: “Harwin is a fine example of what you can achieve if you continue to manufacture in Europe. The company is quick to market with innovative new products and – because it retains all manufacturing processes in-house – is very quick to respond to requests for full custom or modified parts. We are honoured to receive this award.”
