Mouser expands global headquarters
Component distributor Mouser Electronics has announced it is expanding its global headquarters and distribution centre to meet the needs of the business into the next decade.
Mouser stocks a wide selection of authorised components and continues to expand its line card with additional manufacturers from major electronic component product categories, including semiconductors, embedded modules, optoelectronics, passives, interconnects and wire/cable assemblies, electromechanical, power, test and measurement, and tools. Its 24-hour global distribution centre handles tens of thousands of orders per day, processing and shipping — same day in most cases — to over 600,000 customers in 220 countries/territories.
In 2018 sales hit $1.9 billion — a total which Mouser claims it will surpass this year. The company has also expanded its full-time global workforce to more than 2400 and is set to provide local customer service in four new global locations: Brazil, Poland, Vietnam and the Philippines. Mouser has thus made the decision to grow its business position to meet increasing customer demand worldwide.
“With the rapid increase in technological advancements such as IoT, electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, robotics and 5G, we definitely find ourselves in a very robust and fortunate position,” said Glenn Smith, Mouser’s President and CEO. “We are planning for future growth as our customer needs increase.”
Construction is now underway to add more than 11,600 m2 to the global distribution centre, as well as a new 4600 m2 office building on Mouser’s campus, located south of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas. Upon completion of the new construction, the 31 ha global headquarters and distribution centre will consist of 93,000 m2 to accommodate Mouser’s vast inventory of 1 million unique SKUs for products and technologies from over 750 electronic component manufacturers.
“Adding new products and manufacturers reinforces our steadfast commitment to our customers as a single destination for all the components and development tools necessary for the design process,” Smith said. “Our focus on providing the industry’s widest breadth of products is resonating with our growing customer base of engineers and procurement agents in every corner of the world.”
