Smiths Interconnect has honored the performance of its top business partners in the Americas and EMEA in 2019 with a digital Smiths Interconnect Distribution Award.
The EMEA Distribution Awards 2019 were offered in three categories and went to TTI Europe Inc. for absolute growth, to Filcon Electronic GmbH for relative growth and to Microtek Components Ltd for its design-in activity during the fiscal year.
The first award was celebrated in Winter 2019 in the UK at Microtek’s office before COVID-19 was declared a pandemic. It was attended in person by our EMEA Distribution Manager Mario Patanè. Government measures adopted in response to COVID-19 prevented us from presenting the other awards in person, so the other winners were informed virtually, and the trophies delivered thereafter.
In the Americas, Smiths Interconnect had originally planned for our Americas Distribution Manager, Jerilynn Johnston, to present the awards in person by meeting the winners as usual. However, as a result of the ongoing restrictions due to COVID-19, we conducted a virtual ceremony to recognise the efforts of our outstanding partners.
The three winners in the Americas region were RFMW Ltd for absolute growth, Electro Enterprises Inc. for design-in activity and again TTI Inc. for relative growth.
Paul Harris, VP Sales and Marketing at Smiths Interconnect, said, “This year the COVID-19 pandemic forced us to find an alternative approach to celebrate the Distribution Awards, so we did not lose the opportunity to thank our valued partners for their achievements in 2019. We are honored to have them as key partners to promote Smiths Interconnect products and look forward to celebrating with them in person when this is safe and feasible.”
