Partstat Partner Feature: Future ElectronicsBy Logan Wamsley
As the fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic continues to manifest in the manufacturing industry, electronic component distributors are finding new and innovative ways to help both their customers and greater community through this difficult time. One of the more significant examples of this can be seen in the initiatives launched by Partstat partner Future Electronics.
“For over 50 years, Future Electronics has operated with a core priority of caring for the wellbeing of our employees, their families, and our business partners,” said Future Chief Operating Officer Omar Baig in an open letter. “Our teams are now operating remotely, providing seamless business continuity to our partners and ensuring security of supply, worldwide…Working together, practicing smart social behaviors and communicating regularly will enable all of us to succeed in this difficult environment.”
This sentiment can be seen in a variety of ways. For example, under the new campaign “Future Cares,” the company, even during the worst of the pandemic, has prioritized the shipment of urgent equipment such as passives, discretes, and analog components that are used in the manufacturing of medical devices — all while continuing to emphasize workplace safety and well-being.
In order to do so, communication is paramount. Future has accomplished this by providing a feature in their regular newsletter “The Edge” specifically for medical equipment manufacturers. By highlighting components for ventilators, DC/DC converters, medical adapters, and more, the company is taking every opportunity to ensure that the world’s largest available-to-sell inventory of components is both visible to those who need them and readily available.
For manufacturers who may need more information, Future also offers full access to their extensive support network of advanced engineers who touch on all technologies, but particularly the medical field, in recent times of need. In addition to working around the clock to support the necessary technical and design challenges their customers are facing, they also have the ability to connect customers with high-quality, certified, and trusted contract manufacturers who are capable of quickly arranging high-volume production of medical equipment.
These are trying times for all, but it is in such times where ingenuity and commitment to customers can be most easily seen. As we all continue to move forward, Partstat is proud to be partnered with Future Electronics in exposing critical electronic components, semiconductors, and computer products to those who dedicate themselves to the creation of life-saving technologies.
