Powerex/Mitsubishi Electric Power Semiconductors Expand Worldwide Web Sales

March 12, 2013 by Jeff Shepard

Powerex, Inc. now offer worldwide web sales for Mitsubishi Electric Power Semiconductors. Powerex, a joint venture company owned by both Mitsubishi Electric and General Electric, exclusively provides sales, marketing, strategy and logistics support for Mitsubishi Power Semiconductor devices in the Americas. The relationship with Mitsubishi, the world leader in IGBTs and IPMs, allows Powerex to give its customers access to an established supply chain and cutting edge technology. Effective March 1, Powerex’s role as a sales, marketing and logistics arm for Mitsubishi Electric Power Semiconductors has further expanded to include web sales outside of the Americas.

With an already established web sales presence, Powerex can now sell Mitsubishi devices over the web to customers anywhere in the world, with very little exceptions. Up until this time, web sale by Powerex of Mitsubishi products was limited to the Americas. In addition to its role as sales arm for Mitsubishi Electric, Powerex manufactures a wide range of rectifier/thyristor; custom module; and power bridge products at its Youngwood, PA, USA factory. Powerex also serves its global market via its manufacturing facility in Tangiers, Morocco.

“We are excited to be able to expand this convenient purchasing option to more customers,” Powerex President and CEO Craig Morrow stated, “Web sales are a great complement to our existing sales channels.”

For Mitsubishi Power Semiconductor devices in stock, as well as many Powerex products, online orders are processed and shipped in a 24-hour period. Some Powerex rectifier/thyristor products which require additional finishing processes will ship within 5 days.
