Interconnect solutions provider Harting Inc. of North America, rolled out a free, web-based information portal during its open house event during the EDS Show in Las Vegas this week.
HARTING U is designed to help inform engineers, including students, about products, concepts and trends relevant to their needs. It will be a single source for white papers, FAQ’s, tutorial videos, best practices, technical articles, case studies, customer testimonials, apps and press information.
“Customers are doing more homework today before they pick a solutions provider, and they want access to educational content to help them make more informed choices,” says Jon DeSouza, president and CEO of Harting Inc. of North America. “Harting already is the one-stop shop for solutions for industrial and device productivity, and we plan to be a one-stop resource for critical information about time tested solutions and trends relevant to each of our markets.”
Harting also announced the Harting annual North American distributor awards, with the headline Distinguished Award for Distributor of the Year going to Mouser Electronics for the second consecutive year. Mouser was honored for achieving significant revenue growth, exceptional commitment to inventory, and for overall excellence as a partner.
Digi-Key Corp. recieved the Distinguised Award for New Customer Growth by adding more new customers than any other HARTING distributor. Future Electronics, based in Montreal, Canada, recieved the Distinguised Award for New Product Sales Growth, for purchasing a larger volume of new HARTING products than any other distributor. That marks the first time a distributor based in Canada has won one of HARTING Inc. of North America’s annual awards.
