August 22, 2012 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., an award-winning global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, continues to strengthen its brand outreach in China with a number of key marketing initiatives, including the motorsports sponsorship of racing sensation Ho-Pin Tung in the Porsche Carrera Cup Asia 2012. Mouser’s sponsorship of Tung in this series parallels the company’s efforts in expanding its market share in China and offers a unique platform to communicate the message of high-performance and speed-to-market for the distributors’ supplier partners and engineering customers.
“Mouser’s sponsorship of Ho-Pin represents our commitment to promoting our supplier partnerships in China and throughout Asia,” explains Larry Johannes, Mouser Electronics’ Vice President of Strategic Marketing. “His dedication to the high-speed sport of racing is the perfect vehicle to convey our own drive for excellence in providing design engineers with a speed-to-market advantage.”
Tung, who is regarded as a celebrity in China, made a special VIP appearance at Mouser’s recent APAC sales meeting in Hong Kong. He mingled with Mouser team members and shared racing stories. During the 2011 season with Mouser’s support, Tung made history as the first Chinese driver to compete in an IndyCar event, driving in the Grand Prix of Sonoma. In both events, Mouser and its supplier partners teamed up as Tung captured the attention of China and racing fans around the world. The 2012 Porsche Carrera Cup is one of many international branding avenues that promote recognition of Mouser’s supplier partnerships. The race has earned an impressive fan and media following since its launch in 2003, bringing its signature brand of exhilarating motorsports competition to millions across the region. This year marks the event’s 10th anniversary.
