According to Digi-Key president Mark Larson (pictured at right), his company has a “very strong marketing engine” and “we are eager to get started and show (Harting) how we can perform.”
With Harting’s recognized position as a leader in the introduction of new interconnect technology, and Digi-Key’s focus on electronic components, the engineering community and their broad customer base, both companies are excited to bring this opportunity to their customers.
