"Avnet has been one of the most trusted names in the electronics industry for more than half a century and its global reach in the electronics supply chain is second to none," said David Bagby, president and CEO of Alliance Memory. "The company has played a key role in raising the profile of our legacy IC solutions within the North American and Asia markets, and we can't wait to extend that success to the EMEA region, where we expect to grow our customer base across a number of industries."
"To eliminate costly redesigns, there is a high demand across the world for legacy memory solutions, especially DRAMs," said Mario Orlandi, president of Avnet Memec - Silica. "Alliance Memory has made significant additions to its portfolio in anticipation of this demand, and with the company's solutions in our line-up, we've been able to meet the market need in North America and Asia.
