A key reason behind Mouser's rising success in Europe has been the company's numerous customer support locations, strategically placed to provide local, personalized service to design engineers and buyers, explains Mark Burr-Lonnon, Mouser Vice President of EMEA and APAC Business. "Mouser currently has 14 centres across the globe, including London, Munich, Brive, Milan and Tel Aviv. We are intensely focused on providing today's design engineers with the highest level of service, cutting-edge products from top suppliers, superior product information and fast, global delivery. Because we don't focus on repair parts or maintenance supplies, we can be solely focused on providing exceptional value and support to design engineers.
