LONDON Alan Jermyn has become general manager of the Abacus Group’s ‘own brand’ product businesses: Dubilier and Eledis.
Following the Deltron acquisition, Abacus Group has two distinct ‘own-brand’ component businesses, which will now be under unified management. Eledis, headquartered in Milan, sources a range of high quality, cost-effective switching solutions from suppliers in Europe and Asia. Dubilier, a longstanding part of the group, has built a portfolio that now includes batteries as well as the most popular passive and electromechanical components.
Both businesses supply customers directly, through Abacus Group distribution channels and through third party distributors.

“Alan Jermyn shows outstanding leadership skills as a member of the management team responsible for Micromark, a distinct and successful operation within the Abacus Group. He combines this with an exemplary track record of success in marketing passive and electromechanical components, the core of our own brand portfolio. We believe he has exactly the management skills required to take this operation forward,” said Martin Kent, Chief Executive of Abacus Group.
Jermyn joined Abacus Group in 2000 with the acquisition of passives distributor C&CD, where he was joint managing director. On the merger of Micromark with C&CD he was appointed marketing director. He and Vye were appointed to manage Micromark C&CD in 2005.
