New Avnet Abacus Distribution Ups Access to Sensor Products in Europe

PHOENIX — Avnet Abacus, one of Europe’s leading interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical and power distributors and a business unit of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, a business region of Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), has signed a pan-European distribution deal with Measurement Specialties (MEAS), a global designer and manufacturer of sensors and sensor-based systems.

The new franchise agreement is a major extension of the existing collaboration between the two companies, previously serving the market for sensors in Denmark.

The terms of the deal, which took effect on July 1, 2013, authorise Avnet Abacus to operate across Europe as a franchised distributor of Measurement Specialties’ sensor and transducer products. These products precisely measure such physical characteristics as pressure, force, vibration, torque, position, temperature, humidity, fluid properties, mass air flow and photo optics, and are typically used as embedded devices by original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) or as standalone sensors for test and measurement to provide critical monitoring, feedback and control input.
