Premier Farnell’s market position and office locations in Eastern Europe provide an ideal online partner for ROHM’s growth in developing countries
Premier Farnell plc, the leading multi-channel, high service distributor supporting millions of engineers and purchasing professionals globally, has been presented the ROHM Semiconductor Innovation Award for Multichannel Marketing. The award was presented in recognition of Premier Farnell’s growth in emerging markets like Eastern Europe which enable electronic design engineer’s quick access to products via the web, the ability to speak with sales and technical support representatives in their native language and next day delivery on most items.
Premier Farnell and ROHM signed a global distribution agreement in November 2007 to carry over 400 product lines which will now increase to over 1,000 product lines. Also, in 2009 the launch of a new Global Web Referral Programme will allow visitors to the ROHM website, direct click through access to Farnell’s website with the ability for preferred purchase; online, over the phone or through the catalogue.

Premier Farnell continues to invest in and drive its own technical support programmes to ensure that electronic design engineers around the world receive the support, information and data on the latest technologies and products as quickly and effectively as possible. This award pays tribute to the effectiveness of this scheme, providing designers with immediate web access to data and support, as well as reduced delivery lead times.
