Anglia Components has added a range of power resistors covering 0.1W – 2000W following its appointment as the newest UK and Ireland distributor for US specialist manufacturer Ohmite. Anglia will also offer Ohmite’s heat sink range, and will be able to support opportunities for custom resistors under the agreement.
According to Anglia marketing director Graham Bridger, “Ohmite is one of the best regarded names in resistive components and our new relationship with them gives us a complete portfolio of resistors for high current, high voltage and high power applications. We believe Ohmite is the only company to include all four major power resistor technologies in its portfolio. A key strength is their ability to produce custom resistors for specific applications. The relationship also widens our range of heat sinks.”
Peter Craik, international sales director for Ohmite, added, “Around 90% of our European sales is through distribution, and we take our relationships with our distribution partners very seriously. Anglia has convinced us that their strong team of Field Applications Engineers and their internal technical support desk can identify new opportunities for Ohmite and expand our market share. We also believe that their UK stock profile will be a great benefit for our UK customers. Ohmite believes that local and regional distributors can co-exist very successfully with larger global organizations, serving different parts of the market, and think that Anglia will be very successful with our resistive and heat sink products.“
The agreement between Ohmite and Anglia covers the full portfolio of over 10,000 product lines, including wirewound, wire element, thick film, and ceramic composition resistors as well as heat sinks, and rheostats. Ohmite offers axial, tubular, surface mount, and current sense resistors. Key elements of the range will be held in stock at Anglia’s Wisbech, England warehouse and can be ordered for same day shipment from Anglia Live.
