Avnet Abacus to Distribute Bulgin and Arcolectric Brands Throughout Europe
Avnet Abacus announced a pan-European deal with Elektron Technology to distribute the company’s Bulgin and Arcolectric brands throughout Europe. This agreement extends the existing relationship between the two companies, which previously worked together to supply customers in the UK and Ireland with a range of connectivity and electro-mechanical components.
“Bulgin and Arcolectric have been established names for more than 80 years, which is testament to the high quality and reliability of the brands,” said Alan Jermyn, VP marketing, Avnet Abacus. “With product specialist teams located throughout Europe, we are ideally structured to provide Elektron Technology with unparalleled support and the technical expertise essential to achieve continued success and growth for the brands in the region.”
Peter Johnson, group head of connectivity sales EMEA, Elektron Technology, added, “The engineering teams at Avnet Abacus have a vast knowledge base and are already familiar with the products in our Bulgin and Arcolectric ranges through our existing agreement in the UK and Ireland. They have steered designers to the most suitable products from our portfolio for increasingly complex design projects. This expertise, coupled with their widespread presence across Europe, is the perfect foundation for the expansion of our distribution partnership into this region.”
