TTI, Inc., a world leading specialist distributor of electronic components, has been honoured with a ‘Senten Manten’ European Distribution Award in gold from TDK Europe. This is the second consecutive year that TTI has received the top award in the International Volume Distributor category.
Senten Manten is a Japanese term that translates as ‘perfect result’ that is achieved with a score of 1000. TDK’s annual assessment of distribution partners is scored rigorously on distributors’ performance and collaboration with TDK in four categories: business performance, inventory management, contractual terms and operational excellence. To achieve an award, distributors must score at least 600/1000.
Commented Felix Corbett, director, Supplier Marketing, TTI, Inc. in Europe: “We can only deliver the levels of service and support that our customers demand if we work in partnership with our franchise suppliers. Therefore, we welcome any efforts to measure and improve our relationships. The TDK Senten Manten awards are achieved by stringent analysis of performance according to a strict framework of criteria. These results are very useful in building, maintaining and strengthening the fantastic co-operation we have with TDK. We are honoured to receive this award and thank TDK very much.”
