A message from Robert Rospędzihowski (Managing Director Eastern Europe & Farnell International Markets)
As we develop our multi-channel, customer focused services, the further enhancement of our website is critical to meet the needs of all our customers.
We have focused our latest website developments on ‘speed’ and ‘simplicity of search’ together with more detailed product and RoHS information. We aim to be easy to do business with, whatever channel you choose, supported by our high service levels, we get the right products to the right customers at the right time.
We will continue to develop our e-commerce offering and are proud of the recognition we have gained through the Elektra ‘Online Business of the Year Award’.
Premier Farnell takes its role as a responsible corporate citizen seriously and seeks to take account of the economic, social and environmental impacts of its operations. It is our belief that acting in this way is a source of business opportunity, improved competitiveness and sound business practice.
We believe the power and reach of Farnell web-based and catalogue media is being instrumental to Sharp securing strong visibility within the wider design engineering community. This partnership is an excellent complement to our current distribution strategy and we look forward to expanding our collaboration in the future. Maximillian Huber, President Sharp Microelectronics Europe GMBH
