Avnet & Ebm-Papst Mark 25th Year of Keeping It Cool

FARMINGTON, Conn. & PHOENIX, Ariz. — In 1986, nothing was cooler than the film “Top Gun.” In the twenty-five years that have followed the release of this iconic film, staying cool now requires more than a leather bomber jacket and a pair of aviator sunglasses. That’s where Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas, a business region of Avnet Inc. (NYSE: AVT), and ebm-papst, the world’s leading manufacturer of motors, fans and blowers come in. This year marks the 25th year the two companies celebrate their distribution relationship, and their ability to keep their mutual customers cool.

Known for its high-quality, high-reliability AC to AC fans, ebm-papst has built a reputation for providing products that customers can depend on. Innovation is always at the forefront of the company philosophy, as seen in ebm-papst’s latest release of the ACmaxx series of compact axial fans. This product line solves the age-old problem of combining intelligent fan control and monitoring options while providing the ability to operate DC technology directly from the AC main supply. Most recently, ebm-papst released the S-Force generation of tube-axial fans, Series 2200 FTD. These fans produce 30 percent higher air flow than existing 200mm fans and are 27 percent thinner. ebm-papst’s extensive product lines are suitable for all applications including medical, alternative energy, consumer products, IT/telecom and more.

“ebm-papst’s long-standing partnership with Avnet Electronics Marketing has always been an integral part of our success, allowing us to provide the latest technology and services to a wide customer base,” said Bob Sobolewski, president of ebm-papst, Inc. “For the past 25 years, Avnet has shown exemplified excellence in sales and service. Avnet continues to set the standards for strategic thinking and innovation as they excel in supporting the production and design engineering needs of the global market.”

“The strength of Avnet Electronics Marketing’s relationships with our suppliers is really a testament to the commitment we have made to our customers — to provide the best-in-class technologies and services to fit their changing technology needs,” said Ed Smith, president Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “As I see ebm-papst’s technology continue to evolve, I look forward to working together to meet the needs of the next generation of designers.”
