Molex Incorporated, a leading global manufacturer and supplier of electronic connectors, has been presented with the Distribution Award of Assodel, the Italian Association of Electronic Suppliers. The Award acknowledges the ongoing high level of support, both technically and commercially, that Molex Italy provides to its distribution partners and is the second time that Molex has been recognised by Assodel, receiving the same award five years ago.
Commenting on the Award, Marco Ponti, country manager for Molex Italy, said: “Molex has continued to invest heavily in new product development despite the recent economic slowdown. As a result, we’ve maintained our leadership position and more recently entered into new markets such as solar and lighting. We have continued to build strong working relationships and are committed to ensuring high levels of service and trust are maintained throughout the distribution channel.”
Presenting the Award Sandro Ghirardi, president of Assodel, said: “The extensive interconnect product portfolio Molex offers is complemented by a clear and reliable distribution policy. Molex’s commitment to maintaining high levels of support, even through the economic downturn, has resulted in a strong market penetration.”
Assodel (National Association of Electronic Suppliers – www.assodel.it) brings together distributors of components, machinery and electronic subsystems and promotes the activities of electronic industrial and trade related services. The association is the institutional point of reference for suppliers of electronics and, more generally, to what in Italy is Electronics Trade. Since 2003 Assodel assigns a Distribution Award to the best manufacturers for eight product categories (actives, passives, connectors, e-mech, opto & display, RF & wireless, power and instrumentation).
