Podcast: Episode #18 - An update from Farnell
It is just over four years since Avnet acquired Farnell. That deal was closed by a previous CEO.
The newly-installed CEO, Phil Gallagher, a 37-year Avnet veteran, was clear he intends to continue to invest in Farnell, sees value in Farnell and the cross company benefits to suppliers.
In this podcast Rob Rospedzihowski talks about major investments including a brand new distribution centre close to completion and a continuing expansion of Farnell’s inventory across all component categories, fuelled partly by the signing of 30 new suppliers in the past year.
He also talks about the cross company benefits enjoyed by Avnet and Farnell and upgrades to the company’s website to enhance the customer experience.
