HARRISBURG, Pa. – April 3, 2018 –  TE Connectivity (TE), a world leader in connectivity and sensors, presented its 2017 Distributor Awards during its recent Regional Distribution Summits held in Shanghai, China; Bad Neuenahr, Germany; and Orlando, Florida, USA. The annual awards recognize TE’s highest-performing distribution partners in a specific region based on sales growth, business plan realization, customer growth and training participation. TE presented the 2017 Regional Distributor of the Year Awards to Arrow Electronics in Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) and EMEA; Master Electronics in the Americas; and SUZUDEN in Japan.

“TE’s distributors significantly impact our ability to grow our business and provide our customers with an extraordinary customer experience. I am pleased to recognize these outstanding partners,” said Joan Wainwright, president of Channel and Customer Experience at TE Connectivity. “Arrow Electronics’ impressive performance in both the APAC and EMEA regions demonstrates their strong commitment to their customers as seen by their investment in training their people to assist with design-in needs. Master Electronics expanded their local engagement and their inventory, which helped them exceed their business plan. And through the aggressive development of localized programs, SUZUDEN grew their business by expanding their TE customer base, which contributed to their double-digit sales growth. I am proud of these partners and the relationship TE has with them and applaud them for their success in 2017.”

TE’s 2017 Global Distributor of the Year Award will be presented later this year.
