Kemet Corp., a leading global supplier of electronic components, has announced a new trading partnership with Waldom Electronics. Waldom, which sells brand-name components to distributors and never to end customers, will market Kemet's wide range of industry-leading tantalum, ceramic, aluminum, film, and paper capacitors to its network of over 2500 Americas-based distributor customers. Waldom offers supply chain solutions that allow its distributor customers and supplier partners to increase sales, reduce costs, expand markets and recover value from slow-moving, excess and end-of-life components.
Graeme Dorkings, Kemet Vice President, Global Distribution Sales, stated, "Kemet is excited to partner with Waldom to expand our business and reduce the cost of serving the channel. We are especially pleased with the significant number of products that Waldom has placed into inventory – nearly 4000 SKUs – which provides stock-out support to our authorized distribution network on our most popular items and for many less frequently stocked items. Furthermore, Waldom's expertise in developing and marketing engineering kits will accelerate the design-in of our products in a wide array of end user markets."
"Kemet has a world-class distribution network and Waldom is grateful to have the opportunity to complement Kemet's distribution efforts, assist in the design and marketing of engineering kits, and provide greater availability of Kemet products in their authorized distribution channels as well as the extensive network of independent distributors that Waldom services today," said Robert Derringer, General Manager, Waldom Electronics Corporation. "We are pleased to offer many items with a one-piece MOQ as part of our Vanishing MOQ program," continued Derringer, adding, "Waldom will also offer a significant number of Mini-Reels and Mini-Packs, allowing both Kemet's authorized and extended networks to procure Kemet capacitors at a fraction of published MOQ and at preferred pricing that enables the sale of Kemet products."
