Farnell was named ‘High Service Distributor of the Year for 2019’ by Panasonic at the Panasonic Distribution Conference in Munich, on 21 November 2019. The award, for Farnell’s business in EMEA, recognises Farnell’s continued investment in the Panasonic range and business performance in the year.
Farnell doubled its level of inventory of Panasonic products in the last 18 months, including key product introductions such as Panasonic’s range of anti-vibration capacitors. This increased inventory, coupled with Farnell’s service proposition in Europe, including local sales teams, next day delivery and 24/5 technical support enabled Farnell to deliver for more Panasonic customers than any other distributor during the period.
The extension of Farnell’s Panasonic range follows significant investment in the business, since its acquisition by Avnet in 2016. Farnell has also invested $60m in a new distribution centre in Leeds, United Kingdom, which will be fully operational from early 2020.
