Mouser Electronics is expanding its large global headquarters and distribution centre to meet the needs of its growing business well into the next decade.
Construction is under way to add more than 125,000 square feet to the distribution centre, as well as a new 50,000 square-foot office building on Mouser’s campus, located south of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.
In addition the company has plans to add four local customer service sites in Brazil, Poland, Vietnam and the Philippines. Mouser’s full-time global workforce has expanded to more than 2,400.
Sales hit $1.9bn in 2018, and are expected to surpass that number this year.
Upon completion of the new construction, Mouser’s 78-acre global headquarters and massive distribution center will consist of one million square feet to accommodate Mouser’s vast inventory of one million unique SKUs for products and technologies from over 750 electronic component manufacturers.
“With the rapid increase in technological advancements such as IoT, electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, robotics, and 5G, we definitely find ourselves in a very robust and fortunate position,” explained Glenn Smith, Mouser’s President and CEO. “We are planning for future growth as our customer needs increase.”
“Adding new products and manufacturers reinforces our steadfast commitment to our customers as a single destination for all the components and development tools necessary for the design process,” Smith added. “Our focus on providing the industry’s widest breadth of products is resonating with our growing customer base of engineers and procurement agents in every corner of the world.”
