Molex and Master Distributor Waldom Electronics Form Partnership to Support European Union’s Electronics Distribution Market

Partnership aimed at extending the global reach of both firms, while expanding product choices and options for distributors of all sizes across Europe

LISLE, Ill.--()--Molex Incorporated announces a recently signed partnership agreement with Waldom Electronics, the Rockford, IL-based master distributor of electronic and electrical products. The agreement authorizes Waldom to market and sell Molex products exclusively to distribution firms operating within the European Union.

“We are pleased to collaborate with Waldom Electronics, a valued partner and trusted industry supplier with a solid reputation as ‘The Distributor’s Distributor,’ in growing support and product availability for customers across Europe,” said Henry Fuerniss, vice president of sales and marketing EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa), Molex.

The new contract builds on the companies’ existing long-standing partnership, which covers the entire North American electronics distribution market. Waldom will continue to support all of Molex products, including the comprehensive industrial portfolio of Woodhead® and Brad® brand products.

“Building on the Molex tradition of serving customers globally, Waldom brings added value to distributors by providing less than minimum order quantities, availability of B, C, and D products, design kits and special packaging—all of which is beneficial to our companies and European and global distributors,” adds Fred Bell, vice president of global distribution, Molex.

“This new agreement enables us to sell Molex products to our core distributors across Europe, such as Arrow Electronics, Avnet, Farnell Element 14, RS Components, and TTI Inc., while also providing smaller local distributors with ready access to a wide range of Molex electronic and electrical products,” states Peter Rovekamp, general manager, Waldom Electronics EMEA.
