Technical distributor Future Electronics has promised to bring new higher standards of technical and supply-chain service to OEM buyers of power components and modules with the launch of its latest specialist division, Future Power Solutions.
Future Power Solutions has been set up to offer in-depth, specialist technical and market understanding of power technology, while drawing on the global supply-chain capabilities of its parent business, Future Electronics. It will sell a broad range of discrete power components, power modules, and standard and configurable power supplies to customers, starting immediately in the EMEA region. It will also develop and produce custom power solutions via its System Design Centres.
Future Power Solutions employs dedicated applications engineers and business development staff serving key customers. These specialists, who can draw on many years of experience in applying advanced power technologies in electronics and electrical systems, are organised regionally.
At the same time, the division’s resources are available to support local Future Electronics branches that have customers with advanced or specialist power requirements.
At launch, Future Power Solutions has pulled together a comprehensive line-up of franchised suppliers of discrete components, modules and brick power supplies. In line with Future Electronics’ policy of investing in inventory, extensive stocks of franchised suppliers’ products will be available for next-day delivery from distribution centres in Memphis (North America), Leipzig (EMEA) and Singapore (Asia).
Speaking to CIE at this year”s electronica in Muncih Steve Carr, Technical and Vertical Markets Director at Future Electronics, said: ‘The market for OEM power supplies, both in terms of distributors and device manufacturers, is highly fragmented. That means there is space for Future Electronics, a global distributor with world-class capabilities in applications engineering, inventory management and logistics, to match small specialist suppliers’ technical capabilities while providing superior supply-chain service and global reach.’
