July 22, 2007 by Jeff Shepard

LEMO USA Inc. announced that it has signed a national distribution agreement with Sager Electronics, Heilind / Force Electronics and Mouser Electronics to distribute their extensive line of precision modular connectors.

Timothy J. Hassett, General Manager, LEMO, commented, "We saw the need to add national distribution channels to complement our existing regional distributors and expand our service in the marketplace. The mix of these three national distributors, with our existing regional distributors, provides a unique combination of operational excellence and customer focused business solutions. The distributors will maintain substantial inventory of LEMO’s products which should reduce customer delivery lead times. In addition, the new distributors offer a large customer base providing LEMO with a unique opportunity to grow."

Craig Sanderson, Vice President Corporate Product Marketing, Sager Electronics said, "LEMO’s high quality push-pull connectors are found in many of our customer markets including medical, military, industrial control, and communications. We are pleased to be working with LEMO to bring the combination of the best products and service to the North American marketplace."

Mark Adams, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Heilind / Force Electronics commented, "We are excited to add LEMO’s high quality connector products to our interconnect offerings. We are an interconnect specialist and LEMO’s products fit well with our diverse customer base. This will allow us to enhance our customer presence by stocking, design-in and marketing LEMO’s innovative connectors."

According to Barry McConnell, Mouser’s Vice President of Product Marketing, the distribution agreement with LEMO capitalizes on Mouser’s core competencies of fast introduction, extensive stocking, and promotion of the newest products to the design engineering community. "Adding LEMO to the Mouser line card enhances our interconnect product offering and allows us to honor our commitment to deliver high quality, innovative products to the design engineering community."
