May 7, 2012
Gateway Electronic Components has secured an agreement with TDK to distribute EPCOS and TDK products in the UK

PCIM 2012 Nuremberg: Following its successful seven-year relationship with German passives manufacturer EPCOS (a TDK subsidiary), Gateway Electronic Components has secured an agreement with TDK to distribute EPCOS and TDK products in the UK.  By combining EPCOS with the electronic components business of TDK, Gateway now will carry the full range of components.

Gateway is currently making a major investment in EPCOS and TDK products to ensure that it’s ready to respond to customer requirements. Stock levels on the rise include film and aluminum electrolytic capacitors (e.g., pulse and suppression components); RF components (e.g., SAW filters); current and voltage protection devices; as well as sensors, piezo products, and thermistors.

“This extension to our franchise is a recognition of our commitment to EPCOS over the past seven years,” says Martin Ford, managing director of Gateway components. “We have achieved growth through technical competence augmented by our capability to deliver value for money supply-chain solutions for major UK-based OEM and CEM organisations.”

Peter Miller, senior director distribution TDK Electronics UK, says that “during the seven years of engagement with EPCOS products, Gateway has demonstrated technical competence, stocking commitment, and innovative supply-chain solutions. We are subsequently delighted to extend our agreement to include TDK products and promote our broad range of leading technology high-cap MLCCs and magnetic components.”
