AVX, a leading manufacturer of passive components and interconnect solutions,
has signed an agreement with leading authorized master distributor,
Waldom Electronics. Waldom, which caters to the unique needs of
distributors, will offer an extensive portfolio of AVX's best-in-class
tantalum, ceramic, film, and niobium oxide capacitors to its vast
network of small to medium sized regional distributors who have a
substantial local presence, but otherwise do not meet the requirements
for being an authorized distributor. Waldom will also offer support for
stock outs, extended EOLs, new product introductions, and engineering
kits designed to facilitate the design-in of AVX products in a broad
range of end-market applications.
"Joining with Waldom will provide the distribution market with the
support it needs across the full range of components that we
manufacture. It also enables us to efficiently and cost effectively
service portions of our end customer base whose needs can't readily be
met by AVX or many of our existing authorized distributors. By
providing preferred pricing, broken pack quantities, low minimum order
quantities, off-the-shelf delivery, and custom kitting specifically
tailored to the unique needs of many distributors, Waldom is helping
AVX supply our best-in-class components --which consistently meet or
exceed customer expectations with regard to quality, value, cost,
safety, performance, and reliability-- to an even broader segment of
this key sales channel, so we are very happy to engage with Waldom,"
said AVX Vice President of Sales, Pete Venuto.
"Working with premier suppliers like AVX is precisely the type of
strategy that has earned Waldom Electronics its reputation as the
recognized leader in the billion-dollar electronic component
redistribution market, so we are thrilled to be able to offer AVX's
broad range of advanced capacitor products and, subsequently, to
provide support to both AVX's authorized partners and the more than
2,500 small and medium sized regional distributors that we service,"
said Waldom Electronics Corporation General Manager, Robert Derringer.
