Wisbech, Monday, 28 October 2019 – Anglia Components has greatly expanded its range of thermal management components including board mount, extruded and BGA heatsinks following a new distribution agreement for the UK and Ireland with leading Birmingham-based manufacturer, ABL Aluminium Components.
David Pearson, Technical Director of Anglia, commented, “We aim to offer customers a complete solution and the addition of ABL broadens our profile of these components which play an essential role in the reliability of electronic systems.
