Farnell has won the 2010 EMEA High Service Distributor of the Year award from Tektronix, the leading global manufacturer of test measurement and monitoring solutions. The award, presented at Tektronix’s annual executive partner meeting in Paris this week, recognises the outstanding progress that Farnell has achieved over the past 12 months with a 20% increase in sales performance and overall engagement, which outperformed 2009 levels.

Tektronix also noted the successful collaboration between the two companies on element14 – Farnell’s technology portal and eCommunity for electronic design engineers – and its support on new product introductions.

Farnell offers over 160 product lines from Tektronix’s comprehensive range that includes oscilloscopes (including the new MSO/DPO4000B Series), digital multimeters, frequency counter analyzers, power supplies and arbitrary function generators. Comprehensive technical data on all the products, coupled with the discussion forums provided by element14, helps potential users of Tektronix products select the optimum device for their application quickly and easily.

Chris Godfrey, Farnell’s MRO Segment Manager at Farnell said: “The award from Tektronix is a testament to our high service distribution standards and our truly multi-channel approach. We continue to support our customers with not only the latest and best new technologies from our suppliers but also add value with our unique eCommunity, element14, where design engineers around the world collaborate and share best-practice.”

“This award represents a major landmark in the relationship between Tektronix and Farnell,” said Patrice Jaunasse, Sales Director at Tektronix. “Farnell have demonstrated a real multi-channel approach in taking our products to market effectively, and have also successfully expanded their portfolio to include our new mid-range oscilloscopes, which requires them to provide more in-depth technical advice to customers.  We are delighted to present this award to Farnell, in recognition of this achievement.”
