Agreement improves access to PCB hardware

Distributor of passive, interconnect, relay and switch and discrete components, TTI, has signed a partnership agreement with Harwin, a manufacturer of high reliability interconnect solutions and cost-saving PCB hardware products. The agreement extends an existing franchise distribution partnership in Europe and builds on the fact that Harwin is represented globally by TTI subsidiary, Mouser Electronics.

TTI’s vice president supplier marketing and product management, Lew LaFornara, said: “TTI is pleased to announce the extension of the TTI/Harwin relationship in the Americas. We have enjoyed a successful relationship in Europe and at our sister company Mouser Electronics for a number of years and this is a natural evolution of that success.”

Harwin vice president global distribution, Doug Steele, added: “This is the first time Harwin has gone to market with national broadline distribution representation in North America. TTI is known for holding broad and deep product inventories to support customers as they ramp up from new design to full production.”

TTI will supply Harwin products to help solve interconnect and PCB hardware design challenges. For example, the Datamate high reliability connector family is said to provide high performance at industrial connector pricing level, while the EZ-Boardware range of surface mount PCB hardware products claims to deliver space and cost-saving solutions for cable management, EMC, test and battery support functions.
