TDK Honors Digi-Key with European Distribution Award in Gold for High-Service Distributors

Munich, GERMANY - June 11, 2019

TDK has recognized Digi-Key Electronics Europe with their European Distribution Award 2018 in Gold in the high-service distribution category during the annual TDK European Award Dinner. This was Digi-Key's fifth consecutive award from TDK, and Digi-Key attained the highest score in the distributor performance assessment.

The awards are based on TDK's annual Senten Manten distributor performance evaluation program. The Japanese term, Senten Manten, stands for the perfect result, with a maximum of 1,000 points available. Distributors are assessed on performance and collaboration with TDK in four categories: business performance, inventory management, contractual terms, and operational excellence.

"We're honored to receive this award as it is very well reflected in our daily activities," said Hermann Reiter, Director, Global Strategic Business Development & Supplier Management at Digi-Key. "The Distributor Partner Award evaluates up to 1000 performance points and reflects our theme here: "A thousand things done right - every day". This motto motivates us to strive for excellence every day. We thank the TDK team for this 5th consecutive award and our customers for their daily trust."
