Future Electronics is certainly the world's fourth largest electronic piece distributor. Future Electronics, founded in 1968 by President Robert Miller, is based in Montreal, Canada, functioning in 169 locations in 42 countries world-wide, with approximately 5,500 staff members.
As the 3rd major North American piece distributor, and the only direct rival to Avnet, Arrow Electronics, and WPG Holdings, Future Electronics is an outlier of sorts. The company is privately owned, holds practically no debt, and has reached a lot of the progress organically. In contrast to lots of the opponents, Future Electronics is willing to hold inventory for extended amounts of time - that means it works as a virtual lender to manufacturers and long term partner to providers.
Items incorporate Analog, growth tools, discretes, electromechanical, interconnect, lighting methods, logic, memory, microcontrollers, microprocessors, passives, optoelectronics, signal/interface, wi-fi and RF.
