Amphenol has presented PEI-Genesis Europe with an award in appreciation of the distributor’s considerable success in 2013 with Black Zinc Nickel Connector sales.

Steve Roberts, Managing Director of Amphenol Ltd said, “PEI-Genesis has done a fantastic job of accelerating sales of our Black Zinc Nickel products, particularly the MIL-DTL-38999 range into a wide selection of interesting market applications such as; Industrial , Ground Defence Systems and Unmanned Vehicles during 2013. I was delighted to present PEI-Genesis with an award for their exceptional first year sales of Black Zinc Nickel connectors which they assemble from their Southampton Facility.”

Until recently Cadmium plating has been the industry preference for aeronautical and defence applications but it is a highly toxic metal now severely restricted under RoHS legislation. Following considerable investment with a lengthy development period and very successful trials, Amphenol is the first UK manufacturer to supply Black Zinc Nickel plated connectors approved to the strict military specification Mil-DTL-38999. The conductive & non-reflective Black Zinc Nickel RoHS compliant finish is approved for 500 hours salt spray endurance and is fast becoming the new Defence Industry standard whilst also being highly reliable in commercial and industrial applications. PEI-Genesis, as a valued distribution partner, is able to supply Mil-DTL-38999 compliant product under authority from Amphenol.

PEI-Genesis stocks a wide range of component inventory, enabling them to supply connectors, backshells and accessories offering lead-times of just 48 hours.
