Awards for best distributors


TDK has honored its best distribution partners in Europe for the 11th time with the European Distribution Award 2024. The gold award went to TTI Europe in the International Distributor category. TME Electronic Components was honored in the e-Catalogue Distributor category. The best local distributor is the Polish company Elhurt Spólka.

“We are extremely honored to receive recognition from TDK for the third consecutive time. This exceptional award serves as a great motivation for further development and strengthening of our relationship with TDK”, says Tomasz Gredka, Passive Components Product Group Manager at TME Electronic Components. “We would like to express our deep gratitude for the support we have received in building this partnership. It is not only an honor for us, but also a motivation for continuous improvement of our services and the achievement of common business goals.”

In the International Distributor category, silver went to Avnet Abacus and bronze to Arrow Europe. In the e-Catalogue Distributor category, Digi-Key Electronics received silver and Mouser Electronics Europe bronze. In addition to Elhurt Spólka, the German company Beckmann Elektronik was awarded silver for best local distributor and the Lithuanian distributor Elgerta received bronze.

“We are looking back on a challenging financial year, which was characterized by an overall weak economic environment due to various geopolitical uncertainties and conflicts. It is therefore even more pleasing that many distributors achieved outstanding results and that we were once again able to present nine awards in the three categories,” says Susanne Ertl, Head of the TDK distribution business in Europe.

“Our focus is on good cooperation and a close exchange with the distributors”, Susanne Ertl continues. “In order to further strengthen sales at TDK, we will focus even more on a cross-channel sales strategy in the future. This means that direct sales and distribution will work hand in hand, and reliable service and support are also important. We stand by our distributors as a strong partner who responds quickly and flexibly to their requirements and those of our joint customers.”
