LONDON Farnell has won the Schaffner Ltd distributor of the year award for 2007 recognizing sales performance and the close cooperation between the two companies on the introduction of new products.
The two companies have worked closely together to raise awareness about EMC compliance amongst the design engineering community ensuring EMC components are considered early in the design process and correctly specified. They have a long-standing commitment to EMC research and they jointly work with York University, sponsoring Final Year Student Prizes for EMC projects.
“We are very pleased to make this award to Farnell and it marks a very successful, long-standing partnership. Over the past 20 years we have enjoyed an excellent business relationship at all levels, one that provides an industry model. Farnell’s business with us has shown continuous growth, in 2006 we saw a 29% increase in sales over the 2005 figure, seriously outperforming the market,” said Paul Dixon, managing director of Schaffner Ltd.
