HOUSTON, TX -- (November 21, 2013) – Smith & Associates, the largest independent distributor of electronic components, today announces the relocation of its Silicon Valley, California sales office. The new location will offer greater immersion and growth opportunities in the rich environment of Silicon Valley. This will only help strengthen Smith’s support for local customers.
The Silicon Valley area, which is and always has been the core of the electronics industry and major technology innovators, has already provided a range of resources and opportunities to Smith’s local team since the office’s opening in 2000. The new office location will offer increased penetration in the heart of this key area, bolstering the support potential Smith can offer its valued local customers. It will also open doors for new partnerships to be forged.
“Located closer to several of our key customers, this new office will make it easier to meet in person with customers, and allow us to offer more enhanced and increased levels of customized support based on their specific needs,” said Brandon Escalante, Trading Manager of Smith California. “The sense of constant progress and growth in the Silicon Valley tech community is amazing, and we look forward to delving even more deeply into the opportunities this unique location offers.”
Additionally, the expanded office space will allow the Smith California team more room for growth, opening doors for the addition of new team members and diverse talent to the group.
“Our goal for every aspect of this move is growth,” said Escalante. “The vigorous environment of Silicon Valley is primed to support our efforts at this office. We are eager to build new partnerships with both large and small OEMs and CMs in the area so that we can work with them through their lifecycles and show them exactly where we excel.”
“Our current customers will only benefit from having local salespeople who know their needs and who are in their own backyard,” Escalante added. “This area’s distinctive commitment to high-tech growth, as well as the talent and expertise of its community, make Silicon Valley a prime area to seize a deeper foothold. We aim to leverage our increased penetration for the greatest benefit to new and current customers alike.”
