Farnell element14 has been named High Service Distributor of the Year for EMEA by Bel Europe. The award was presented to Farnell element14 at the recent electronica exhibition. It is based on sales growth achieved by the business underpinned by a strong and growing partnership and investment in inventory.
Chris Breslin, President of Premier Farnell and Farnell element14 said: “This award is testament to the progress our business has made over the last eighteen months; driven by significant investment in inventory and logistics and our ongoing focus on delivering a multichannel route to market for our supplier partners. We have worked closely with our partners at Bel, to develop our partnership further and maximise the opportunities created by broader and deeper stocking in our Belgium and UK-based warehouses.”
Paul Ochmann, Director of Sales for Bel Europe, added: “Bel is thrilled with Farnell element14’s growth over this past year, in EMEA. Through a mutual collaboration on new product introductions, marketing and sales growth, Bel has been able to enhance our products/brands, available inventory and brought our teams closer together.”
