Wisbech, Monday, 4 March 2019 Anglia Components today announced a new design partner service for its customers. The Anglia Design Partner Programme is comprised of carefully selected independent design consultants from across the UK that can help accelerate customers’ design cycles, often with expertise in specific areas.
Steve Rawlins, CEO, Anglia comments, “Whilst other distributors are pouring resource into offering services that cater for the Maker movement and similar, Anglia recognises that there is also a real need within the UK SME electronics manufacturing community for design and engineering resource that has proven experience designing for OEM and Industrial applications. It is this design experience which is one of the main selection criteria for the Anglia Design Partner Programme. Another key requirement for consultants in the Anglia Design Partner Programme is they must be completely independent allowing them to focus purely on providing the best design solution for the customers’ application without external influence.”
He continued, “Many of our customers have design capabilities in-house but often need more specific expertise in areas such as RF & Microwave, software, analog, power etc. We’ve been working on the Anglia Design Partner Programme for the last 9 months with the aim of finding the best independent design consultants in the UK that we can confidently recommend to our customers to work seamlessly with their design team on their projects. It’s a real win-win for both our customers and the chosen independent design consultants.”
Anglia has a strong reputation for putting their customers first with highly trained Field Application Engineers on hand to offer technical support, product selection and design guidance. Now they are taking it to an even deeper level with the Anglia Design Partner Programme. The independent design consultants selected can actively engage with the customers’ design teams to plug any knowledge gaps and provide additional expertise that may be required on the project, or alternatively they can be given the remit to run the entire design project on behalf of the customer. Anglia’s core aim when creating the Anglia Design Partner Programme was to reduce the difficulties their customers can face in finding reliable external design consultants with the right skills. By doing the due diligence for them, this enables Anglia to minimise any risk to the customer by only recommending design consultants that meet their specific criteria.
A dedicated section has been launched on Anglia Live giving a more detailed overview of the Anglia Design Partner Programme along with information on the design disciplines the consultants are able to support. Customers can contact Anglia directly via the site to be put in touch with an appropriate consultant. In addition, there is a facility for independent design consultants who would like to join Anglia’s Design Partner Programme to apply for evaluation.
