Smith & Associates to Exhibit at Electronica China 2015 – Booth 3172
On the heels of its record thirtieth anniversary year, Smith will showcase its expanding service and quality capabilities in Shanghai.
Houston, TX (February 5, 2015) – Smith & Associates, the largest independent distributor of electronic components, today announces its upcoming exhibition at Electronica China 2015 in Shanghai. The company, which celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2014, closed this historical year with record annual revenues that were the largest in the company’s history. Smith is now bringing this momentum to the expansion of its global quality and service programs, which it will showcase at Electronica China 2015, a leading electronics industry gathering.
Smith & Associates representatives will be on-hand in booth 3172 to demonstrate the company’s product sourcing capabilities and expansive strategies for customized inventory and supply chain management, in addition to its extensive quality and anti-counterfeit testing capabilities. Electronica China will also offer Smith the opportunity to highlight the localized support options for end-to-end supply chain management the company can provide customers in the bustling Asian market and worldwide.
“Electronica is one of the electronics industry’s leading events, and Electronica China offers the unique opportunity to interact with one of the industry’s most vital markets,” said Mark Bollinger, Smith’s Vice President of Marketing. “Asia’s constantly evolving market demands keen industry awareness to know and support this region.”
Smith’s own consistent growth underpins the company’s ability to support customers in Asia and worldwide. Smith has strengthened its efforts and resources for combatting counterfeiting with the expansion of its laboratory facilities and the continual, extensive training of its quality inspectors. Smith has also revolutionized its ability to engineer unique supply chain management strategies with the development of its new Global Services division, which analyzes customer needs and designs customized service programs to address their supply chain challenges. The company has also expanded its PPV program to support cost savings for customers worldwide.
Smith is now poised to showcase these strengths at Electronica China 2015.
“This event will offer a valuable opportunity to demonstrate to current and potential customers what Smith can offer the expansive Asia-Pacific market,” said Mark. “We are excited by the opportunity to showcase our evolving service portfolio and quality resources to the global community of industry professionals at Electronica China.”
