Product range

We have the broadest range of electronics and industrial products

With a stocked range of more than 500,000 electronics and industrial products, we provide a one-stop source for everything engineers need.

We have four product categories that are built to service our four target customer groups and there are clear, distinct strategies for each.


Semiconductors, such as microcontrollers, voltage regulators, transistors and diodes, are at the heart of any electronic device and the starting point of any new electronic design. This is why our customers need them and why we focus on providing a broad range of the latest, high-quality components.

Interconnect, Passives and Electromechanical (IP&E)

Virtually all electronic and electrical systems require IP&E components, from resistors and switches to heavy-duty connectors for industrial applications and board-level power supplies. Thanks to the strong relationships we have with our suppliers, we offer our customers quick, easy access to a comprehensive range including the most innovative components on the market.

Automation and Control (A&C)

A&C products, which include programmable logic controllers (PLCs), safety devices, sensors, cables and pneumatic cylinders, are suitable for all vertical markets, including the food and beverage, packaging, manufacturing, marine, and oil and gas industries. We are focused on being the main supplier for panel builders and maintenance engineers in small and medium-sized enterprises.

Tools, consumables and test

Our tools, consumables and test range encompasses everything that our customers need to support the product life cycle, from research and development through to the maintenance and repair of production plants, buildings and machineries. This includes electronics workbench equipment, electrostatic discharge (ESD) products and 3D printers through to electrical, test and measurement and safety equipment, mechanical tools and lighting.
