Wisbech, 22 February 2021 – Anglia Components has been named the STMicroelectronics Distributor of the Year 2020 in the UK and Ireland. This award recognises Anglia’s hard work, dedication and standout service to STMicroelectronics customers.
Commenting on the award, John David, UK and Ireland Sales Manager for STMicroelectronics, said, “2020 has been a hugely challenging year what with pressures of the pandemic, the fall of the UK market, supply shortages and countless companies closing for long periods. The shining light in all of this has been Anglia, who has achieved outstanding sales this year in the UK thanks to good decision making and intelligent inventory support. Their service to our UK customer base has been outstanding. We’d like to thank each and every person in the Anglia team for their work in 2020 and we look forward to another great year in 2021.”
Steve Rawlins, CEO of Anglia said, “We’re delighted to accept this award, albeit virtually, from STMicroelectronics. STMicroelectronics was our first Tier 1 semiconductor franchise, and we’ve had a relationship spanning well over 20 years. It has been a difficult year for the industry across the board, and this award confirms that our relationship continues to grow from strength to strength.”
