What began as a North American distribution agreement between Bourns Inc. and TTI Inc. has spread worldwide. Bourns Inc., Riverside, Calif., recently extended its 15-year-old franchise with the Forth Worth, Texas distributor, which specializes in interconnect, passives, and electromechanical components.
Patricia Moorman, vice president of worldwide distributor sales, said "a high percentage of total sales goes through distribution, more than 70% of Bourns' business worldwide."
In the Americas, 67% of Bourns' total sales go through distribution, whereas the figure is 59% in Europe and 85% in Asia.
"Bourns is pleased to move forward with TTI and support their growth in all regions of the world," Moorman said.
