LONDON POS growth of 22% on the Tyco Electronics’ product line in 2005 has made Simpson Donald this year’s winner of Tyco Electronics’ UK & Ireland Specialist Distributor of the Year 2005 award.
Based in Denny, Scotland, Simpson Donald distributes Tyco Electronics’ RAYCHEM brand products of wires, cables, sleeves and markers.
“Simpson Donald has been distributing our RAYCHEM brand products for years and truly deserves this award. They put in so much work, especially with the design-in and project based work,” said, Mela Woosnam, Regional Distribution Leader at Tyco Electronics.
Specializing in the professional military and offshore markets, Simpson Donald has changed the focus of its activities over the years. “Scotland has always had a very large and strong commercial electronics market. However, since the shift of manufacturing to Asia, we have had to change our business strategy,” said Simpson Donald, Managing Director at Simpson Donald. “Key markets for us nowadays are military and offshore, where we have built up high levels of expertise and offer technical assistance for specialist projects and design-in work.”
