Avnet Abacus receives European Distributor of the Year 2021 award from Harwin

Avnet Abacus, one of Europe’s leading interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributors and a regional business unit of Avnet, has received the “European Distributor of the Year 2021” award from Harwin, a globally recognised leader in high reliability interconnect solutions.

Michael Clarner, Head of Distribution Sales EMEA at Harwin, said: “Our partnership with Avnet Abacus is exceptionally strong across Europe at all levels of our business. During 2021, revenue grew beyond the market average, and the number and value of new design-wins pave the way for a bright future.”

This latest award follows on from Avnet Abacus’ recent success in Harwin’s 5 Star Awards, which recognised two individuals from Avnet Abacus for their highly creditable efforts in supporting Harwin’s business. Jose Ramon Blazquez played a key role in securing Harwin design wins in a variety of markets, and Dieter Kuhn contributed invaluable technical support to a series of high-profile customer projects.

Hagen Götze, Senior Director Marketing at Avnet Abacus, said: “By having a strong focus on customer service, excellent technical support and a great collaboration with Harwin we were able to once again strengthen our position as the number 1 distributor in Harwin´s network in EMEA during 2021. I´d like to thank the entire Harwin team for the great support.”

Avnet Abacus distributes a broad portfolio of Harwin high reliability interconnect products for use in industries including industrial IoT and aerospace & defence, and for EMC shielding.
