Harwin names Mouser as Worldwide Distributor of the Year
Hi-Rel interconnect and PCB Hardware maker impressed by new product design activities
Salem NH, USA, August 2011 – Harwin Inc, leading manufacturer of hi-rel connectors and SMT board hardware, has named Mouser Electronics as its Global Distributor of the Year in recognition of the company’s excellent performance in taking Harwin’s innovative product line to market in North America, Europe and Asia.
Harwin’s three main product families – Datamate 2mm hi-rel interconnect, EZ-Boardware SMT PCB hardware, and fine pitch board to board and board to cable connectors – all offer significant benefits to designers as they develop new end products. Doug Steele, Worldwide Distribution Manager explains that this is an area in which Mouser excels: “Mouser’s whole philosophy is to support the design engineer at the start of new programs and through into prototyping and low batch product introduction. This is ideal fit for our product range and we have been delighted to have seen sales increase significantly because of the approach they are taking.”
Krystal Jackson, Mouser Vice-President of Interconnect, comments “Harwin continues to develop its range with innovative additions such as the Datamate S-Tek, industry’s first hi-rel connector with full EMC screening, and new EZ-Boardware products like the coin cell holders and EMC shield clips. These products – and many others in their range – are exactly the type of components that we want to have in our catalogs. We strive to offer the ‘newest products for the newest designs’, enabling designers to add new benefits and functionality to their end products creating a real differentiating factor from competing products.”
