Leading Distributor Strengthens Line Card, Adding new Authorized Line
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (PRWeb) August 7, 2014–America II Electronics, Inc., one of the world’s largest independent distributors of semiconductors and electronic components, has entered into a distribution agreement with Taiwan Semiconductor, a worldwide manufacturer of discrete semiconductors, as well as analog ICs, power transistors and MosFETs used in the automotive, computer, consumer, industrial, telecom and photovoltaic industries.
“We’re in a period where the independent channel is really thriving,” said Brian Ellison, President of America II Electronics. “So our continued focus is the expansion of our supply chain to meet the growing customer demand. Part of our Blended Distribution? model centers on developing the authorized side of our business via direct manufacturer relationships. Our partnership with Taiwan Semiconductor presents an excellent opportunity. It allows us to deliver some of the best services and solutions to our expanding customer base, while we strengthen our line card and build upon our existing success.”
Under terms of the agreement, America II will have North and South American distribution rights to Taiwan Semiconductor’s broad line of products.
“We’re excited to name America II as an authorized distributor,” said Kevin Aie, President, Americas at Taiwan Semiconductor. “America II is a successful global distributor. They have significant sales coverage around the world, which will help us expand our distribution channel and grow market share. We believe their industry experience and market knowledge will foster an extremely successful partnership.”
With four billion components in stock and available to sell at their St. Petersburg facility, America II Electronics has one of the largest inventories in the industry. Originally established as a supplier focused on the distribution of hard-to-find parts, America II has transitioned to its current Blended Distribution? model by combining traits of both the independent and franchise channels. While the company still focuses on all the things that made it a successful independent distributor, it has also taken on the qualities of an authorized distributor by stocking secure product directly from manufacturers while offering traceability and continuity of supply.
