Sensata Technologies has recognised Digi-Key Electronics with the “2017 Channel Partner of the Year” award during the 2018 Sensata Sales Summit in Attleboro, MA. The award is based off the highest growth rate for both sales and customer acquisition in 2017.
Sensata Technologies is a global industrial technology company and a leader in the development, manufacture, and sale of sensors and controls. Brands represented under the Sensata umbrella, and available for immediate shipment at Digi-Key, include Crydom, BEI Sensors, Kavlico Sensors, and Sensata Sensors.
“Being Channel Partner of the year certainly implies that Digi-Key helped us drive organic growth and customer acquisition that outpaced their peers, which they did,” said Matt Lesniak, VP of Industrial Solutions at Sensata. “But beyond that, they have also helped us to open new markets and extend our reach globally.”
The two companies share similar business goals and objectives for the electronic components industry.
“We are appreciative to receive this award and are pleased with the sales and customer growth we have shared with Sensata over the years,” said David Stein, vice president, Global Supplier Development at Digi-Key. “Sensata’s commitment to strategic marketing placements illustrates a great example of the collaborative relationships and programs we strive to have with our supplier partners.”
