Furthermore Avnet’s global coverage meets the needs of customers who require a global partner to execute their growth plans.”

“The naming of Avnet as Osram’s Preferred Global Partner reinforces our continued investment in both expert resources and technology in support of this burgeoning market,” said Harley Feldberg, president, Avnet Electronics Marketing, global. “It is the strength of our people, products and partners -- such as Osram -- that continue to give our customers around the world a faster time-to-market advantage and the opportunity to design with the latest energy-efficient, high-performance LED technology.”
