Distribution deal delivers full portfolio of power resistors and more

04-02-2015 | Anglia | Passives

Anglia Components has added a range of power resistors covering 0.1W – 2000W
following its appointment as the newest UK and Ireland distributor for US
specialist manufacturer Ohmite. Anglia will also offer Ohmite’s heat sink
range, and will be able to support opportunities for custom resistors under
the agreement.

According to Anglia marketing director, Graham Bridger, “Ohmite is one of
the best regarded names in resistive components and our new relationship
with them gives us a complete portfolio of resistors for high current, high
voltage and high power applications. We believe Ohmite is the only company
to include all four major power resistor technologies in its portfolio. A
key strength is their ability to produce custom resistors for specific
applications. The relationship also widens our range of heat sinks.”

Peter Craik, international sales director, Ohmite, added: “Around 90% of
our European sales is through distribution, and we take our relationships
with our distribution partners very seriously. Anglia has convinced us that
their strong team of Field Applications Engineers and their internal
technical support desk can identify new opportunities for Ohmite and expand
our market share. We also believe that their UK stock profile will be a
great benefit for our UK customers. Ohmite believes that local and regional
distributors can co-exist very successfully with larger global
organizations, serving different parts of the market, and think that Anglia
will be very successful with our resistive and heat sink products.“

The agreement between Ohmite and Anglia covers the full portfolio of over
10,000 product lines, including wirewound, wire element, thick film, and
ceramic composition resistors as well as heat sinks, and rheostats, also
axial, tubular, surface-mount and current-sense resistors, says the company.
