In a bid to improve productivity, streamline operations and make it easier to do business with the company, AZTC Platinum Sponsor Avnet has made the move to consolidate two of its business units in Japan to now serve the region under the name Avnet K.K.
Until the end of 2014, customers in Japan were served by Avnet Internix K.K. and Unidux, Inc., whose parent is headquartered in Phoenix. But customer feedback indicated their preference for dealing with a single organization.
In turn, Avnet recognized the opportunity to focus on key technologies by restructuring them into three product segments — semiconductors; interconnect, passive and electromechanical; and embedded products — in a one-team relationship approach.
