LONDON Omron Electronic Components Europe has said that MSC and Gleichmann Electronics was its most successful distribution partner in 2006 increasing sales by 30 percent and that the MSC-Gleichmann Group has moved up to the number one position in its central European distribution network.
According to Wolfgang Killian, general manager central Europe of Omron (Hoofddorp, Netherlands), the MSC-Gleichmann Group (Frankenthal/Stutensee, Germany) increased its volume of sales and the number of design-wins.
Experts from MSC and Gleichmann now work out of the Omron microswitch technical center which was established in 2006, and also houses Japanese engineers with extensive design experience, capable of providing fast feasibility checks to meet customers’ special requirements. In most cases, the technical center can offer customers a solution for approval the same day. “I am convinced that at this time no relay or switch manufacturer or components distributor could react faster to customer wishes than we are able to,” said Alfred Wurzinger, line manager Omron of the MSC-Gleichmann Group.
MSC and Gleichmann plans to increase the range of standard products available for immediate delivery from stock.
