Avnet Memec, an Avnet company, has been named as European Distributor of the Year 2014 for Macronix, supplier of advanced non-volatile memory devices. The award is given annually for outstanding performance in sales growth, new business opportunities and operations.

From a standing start their vertical market focus resulted in increased sales, new business opportunities and design wins, whilst demonstrating operational excellence. This award is thoroughly deserved and I congratulate them.”
John Jones, European marketing director at Avnet Memec continued, “The Macronix product portfolio is a great fit for us with its advanced Flash memory devices fitting many of our target vertical markets. The Distributor of the Year award is evidence of our strong relationships with our customers and Macronix, which has enabled us to identify and support a significant number of new opportunities and I am delighted to accept the award on behalf of everyone at Avnet Memec.”
