Avnet Abacus, a leading European interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributor, and a business unit of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, has signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Fischer Elektronik under which Avnet Abacus will represent Fischer Elektronik, a specialist in the design and manufacture of thermal management solutions, enclosures and connectors, as an authorised reseller and will supply customers throughout Europe with a broad array of components from the Fischer product portfolio.
Avnet Abacus has a widespread presence across Europe with over 40 offices in 18 different countries and so is well placed to access the extensive customer base in the region, providing technical expertise in the local language.
