Lemo, a player in the design and manufacture of custom connection solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with the Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas business of Avnet Inc. Under the terms of the new agreement, Avnet will distribute Lemo’s line of medical and military circular connectors in North America.

Timothy J. Hassett, Managing Director, Lemo USA, Inc. commented, “By
partnering with Avnet we will have a unique position in the marketplace
to gain the attention of the design engineers due to Avnet’s dedicated
design engineering sales personnel and expertise in the applications to
take Lemo product to areas that we have not played before.” Hassett

vertical marketing focus teams in Medical, Industrial, Military and
Energy open up a link to the design centers and super cluster
geographies that Lemo feels is a must for long term growth and
design-in-wins.”

“With applications in the medical, industrial control, test and
measurement, audio/video, telecommunications and military/aerospace
areas, Lemo’s connectors offer additional diversity to our customers,”
said Alex Iuorio, senior vice president of supplier business management
for Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “It’s a great fit for our line
card — these markets are our ‘sweet spot’ for Avnet in the Americas,
and as we continue to look for new ways to satisfy our customers’
interconnect requirements, we believe this is a win for Avnet, Lemo and
the markets we both serve.”
