LONDON Anglia Components has won Schaffner’s UK distributor of the year award for 2004 with sales growth of almost 70% over 2003 as well as having registered the highest number of original design-in projects out of the distribution network. This is only Anglia’s second year as a Schaffner distributor.
Andy Kotas, marketing manager of Schaffner, said, “Anglia’s performance has been excellent for Schaffner this year and has already exceeded this year’s target with 3 months to go. I believe Anglia are particularly strong for new design wins as they have a dedicated team of engineers constantly supporting their external sales teams at customer sites.”
Lee Nye, marketing director of Anglia Components, said: “We are delighted to receive this award from Schaffner. It shows what can be achieved in a short time when there is close cooperation at all levels. We expect our Schaffner business to go from strength to strength and aim to improve upon our performance to retain the award in 2005”.
The award is decided by performance in a number of key area’s; sales percentage of agreed annual target, percentage increase in sales year on year, total spend, punctuality and quality of reporting and quantity of design projects registered. Points are awarded for the distributor’s position in the table and the points are also weighted depending on the importance of the category.
