Mouser Receives Distribution Accolade from FTDI Chip

22nd May 2019 – USB connectivity IC manufacturer FTDI Chip has bestowed this year’s global distribution award on Mouser Electronics for being the global distributor with the most significant sales revenue growth in 2018. As a longstanding and highly valued supply chain partner, Mouser has been successful in accentuating the effectiveness of FTDI Chip’s worldwide commercial operations – thereby complementing the company’s own direct sales network.

Through its powerful online presence, Mouser has gained traction with the design engineering community in key Asian, North American and European markets, as well as addressing new application opportunities that are starting to emerge. As a result of this, the distributor has brought about a major increase in unit shipments across the whole FTDI Chip range of silicon solutions, plus its supporting cables, development hardware and evaluation modules, while also offering rapid delivery from a centralized stock reserve. This encompasses the manufacturer’s USB Full-Speed, High-Speed and SuperSpeed (USB 3.0/3.1) bridging and controller products.  
“I am very pleased to present Mouser with this award, as an acknowledgement of its team’s ceaseless efforts to grow annual revenues, open up further sales channels and simultaneously provide the highest levels of customer service,” states Fred Dart, CEO and founder of FTDI Chip.

“It is an honor to receive this award from FTDI Chip,” Jeff Newell, Senior Vice President of Products at Mouser Electronics, responds. “This is the culmination of many years of continued hard work paying off, and it exemplifies our primary goal of ensuring we are able to fully attend to the needs of the customer base across all regions.”
