Charcroft Electronics Ltd. – a specialist distributor and manufacturer of electronic components – has appointed Roger Tall as Director, after seven years with Charcroft as Business Development Manager, Product Specialist and Sales Manager.
“Roger Tall has helped to steer our customers through the unusual times that the industry has experienced recently,” explains Paul Newman, Managing Director. “The significant technical expertise and problem-solving that he has provided have contributed to the high level of customer support and continued growth.”
The knowledge and experience gained by Roger Tall has been acquired through five years in management roles for Charcroft’s franchised supplier, TT Electronics. The experience also covers four years as Sales Manager for RS Components and two years as an Applications Engineer for Power Integrations. Roger Tall also spent one year as a Regional Manager for a not-for-profit social enterprise which supports the homeless in getting back into employment and self-sufficiency.
“This is an exciting time for Charcroft customers,” says Roger Tall. “The combination of UK-based manufacturing and stock-holding gives customers a clear advantage. Buying from UK-held stock overcomes the delays and extra paperwork required to buy from organisations which ship into the UK from centralised European warehousing.”
“The UK-based in-house manufacturing is being extended with the recent acquisition of ClarityCap Audio-grade Capacitors and ICW Film Capacitors, and all technical support is provided by a UK-based team. This compares to most other distributors and component manufacturers where the teams cover customers across Europe.”
“The solutions that we define for customers are often found by thinking out-of-the-box and as part of a long-term relationship with the customers and suppliers. There is also the determination to find solutions for customers in the defence, space, specialist automotive, instrumentation and high-end audio sectors which are not typically a focus for high-volume distributors. As a privately-owned company, Charcroft has the flexibility and agility to respond to our customer needs.”
