Mouser Electronics, Inc., a leading engineering resource and a global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, today announced the new opening of a customer service center situated in Penang, Malaysia. This new office now makes 20 locations worldwide and seven locations in the APAC region for the global design-fulfillment distributor. Mouser’s local Penang office serves the increasing local demand for the personalized technical support and service of design engineers while adding to the company’s growing global footprint.
Penang is one of the largest electronics manufacturing hubs in Asia with a solid base of research and development activities. With this new location, Mouser is able to provide design engineers and buyers in Penang with best-in-class localized service and fast delivery of the newest semiconductors and electronic components from the world’s top manufacturers.
Mouser’s seven customer support centers are strategically placed across the APAC in Hong Kong, Shanghai, Taipei, Singapore, Bengaluru, Bangkok, and Penang.
“Mouser is very excited about opening the new location in Penang. It reinforces our commitment to provide innovation-driven design resources to help facilitate the success of electronic engineering activities in Penang,” states Mark Burr-Lonnon, Mouser Senior VP of APAC Business. “This is one of the fastest growing markets for us with over 30% growth rate in APAC. We see great potential here, not only in the electronics manufacturing sector, but also in the areas where governments are placing huge investment, such as local infrastructure.”
Burr-Lonnon continues, “When you take into account the well-educated, highly-skilled workforce, and the high concentration of progressive engineering, manufacturing and high-tech companies, expanding Mouser’s presence into Penang makes for a sound business strategy.”
