Robert Miller, President of Future Electronics, congratulated the company’s Brazil team, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
Online PR News – 12-May-2021 – Pointe Claire, Quebec – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently celebrated the 25th anniversary of the company's first office in Brazil.
Future Electronics was founded in Montreal in 1968 by company President Robert Miller. It expanded into the United States in 1972, opening its first American office in Boston.
The first Brazil branch opened its doors in the city of Campinas in 1996. "I witnessed Future's pioneering spirit 25 years ago," said General Manager Eduardo Zamaro. "We were the first distributor to set foot in South America at a time when the region was still experiencing instability."
The team in Campinas quickly gained a reputation for the quality of their service, fuelling their expansion and ultimately establishing Future as the top-ranked distributor among all major customers and suppliers in the region.
Today, the Brazilian team is strategically distributed in seven locations within the country's major industrial zones, enabling 'same-day presence' for over 80% of their customer base. "Our challenge is to provide regional coverage in a country with continental dimensions, as well as many peculiarities in logistical and taxation rules," Zamaro said.
The eclectic nature of the Brazilian market comprised largely of local customers in segments such as telecommunications, industrial, automotive, medical and lighting, drove the Brazilian team to focus their energies on Demand Creation. This approach, combined with their industry-leading engineering services and flexible supply chain solutions, helped contribute to their continued growth.
"The maturity we've developed over the past 25 years, combined with our highly-skilled team, gives me the certainty that we will continue to grow for another 25 years and beyond," Zamaro said.
Robert Miller, President of Future Electronics, congratulated the Brazil team on their 25-year milestone, and thanked everyone for their contributions to the success of the branch.
