America II and HellermannTyton Announce Global Distribution Agreement

Logo-with-taglineAmerica II Electronics, Inc., one of the world’s largest independent distributors of semiconductors and electronic components, has entered into a global distribution agreement with HellermannTyton, a global manufacturer and supplier of cable management, identification and structured cabling solutions. Through this agreement, America II will distribute a broad line of HellermannTyton products for the automotive, manufacturing, industrial, electrical, telecommunications, commercial data and renewable energy industries.

“HellermannTyton has been around for 44 years, providing innovative solutions that feature exceptional design, quality and performance,” said Brian Ellison, President of America II Electronics. “Through their products, they deliver value-added solutions to OEMs in the industries we serve. This partnership allows us to extend those offerings to our existing customers.”

HellermannTyton is a leading manufacturer of products which help customers better manage and identify wire, cable and components. The company produces high-performance bundling, securing, routing, protection, insulation, identification and network connectivity solutions.

“America II is a leader in the industry,” said HellermannTyton Sales Manager, Jim Annis. “It was apparent a partnership would open new opportunities for HellermannTyton, allowing us to extend our global reach through their existing customer relationships. We’re excited about the potential both companies have in working together.”

“Our goal continues to be this evolution from a traditional independent distributor to more of a blended model – taking on traits typically found in authorized distribution,” added Ellison. “Offering complete product solutions and partnering with a recognized manufacturer like HellermannTyton confirms this commitment.”

With four billion parts in stock and available to sell at their St. Petersburg facility, America II Electronics has one of the largest inventories in the industry. Originally established as a supplier focused on the distribution of hard-to-find parts, America II continues its transition to a blended distribution model by continuing to add authorized lines and stock secure product directly from manufacturers.
