Allied Electronics Offers 35K New Products As Part Of Global Initiative

As part of Allied's 'Globalize the Offer' initiative, it has expanded its offering by making the product portfolios for both Allied and its UK-based sister company, RS Components, available worldwide.

FORT WORTH, TX — Allied Electronics, a trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), announced Tuesday that it has expanded its portfolio by nearly 35,000 new products from a number of important suppliers — now available through the Allied website —  as part of a global initiative.

“As part of our extensive ‘Globalize the Offer’ initiative, we’re expanding our offering by making the product portfolios of both Allied and our UK-based sister company, RS Components, available worldwide,” said Frank Cantwell, Vice President of Product Management for Allied. “When complete, more than 75 percent of our part numbers will be visible around the world. This initiative began in 2013, when we expanded the product line of TE Connectivity, and advanced even further this past summer, when we added more than 16,000 products from eight suppliers. Now we take another step forward with this, our latest expansion, making more than 52,000 new products available to our customers in 2014.”

The suppliers that have been expanded in this latest phase include:

  • Schneider Electric
  • Microchip
  • ST Micro
  • Siemens
  • SMC
  • 3M
  • Bourns
  • Nichicon
  • Epcos
  • Kemet
  • ABB
  • Vishay

“Our plan is to announce additional expanded lines every six to eight weeks,” Cantwell said. “Once this expansion is completed, our customers will have access to more of the parts and products they need than ever before. It’s an exciting initiative, and one that will certainly increase our profile as a global company with a local presence.”
