Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by company president Robert Miller and now a world-class leader and innovator in the distribution and marketing of electronics components, has announced an extension to its worldwide distribution agreement with TE Connectivity (TE), a global leader in connectivity and sensors, to include TE’s DEUTSCH portfolio of high-reliability connectors.
TE’s DEUTSCH connectors are known for their durability and resistance to the effects of extreme weather, contamination and moisture. DEUTSCH products such as the DT family of small, sealed connectors and the HDP family of sealed circular connectors are commonly used in off-highway vehicles such as mining excavators and tractors, and in industrial vehicles such as trucks and buses. The extension of TE’s DEUTSCH product range to the Future Electronics portfolio is effective worldwide immediately.
The DEUTSCH families of high-reliability connectors will be supported by Future Electronics’ specialist PIE (Passive, Interconnect and Electro-mechanical) product marketing division, and by local field applications engineers who specialise in PIE technology.
John Dittig, TE’s global account manager responsible for Future Electronics, said: “Future Electronics’ inventory of TE’s durable and reliable connector products, along with their technical expertise, design engineer support and logistics capabilities are helping our mutual customers solve design problems and bring their products to market quickly.”
Jill Thomas, EMEA supplier development director, Future Electronics, said: “The addition of TE’s DEUTSCH product range adds market-leading, highly reliable industrial connectors to the Future Electronics portfolio of products. This is great news for our industrial customers, who can source more of their bill-of-materials from a distributor that offers world-class service, support and logistics.”
