Future and Ecliptek sign global disty deal

Future also strikes franchise deal with digital security specialists Gemalto


Future Electronics has reached a global distribution agreement with Ecliptek Corp., Costa Mesa CA, a leading frequency control manufacturer. Featuring a wide range of MEMS oscillator, quartz oscillator and quartz crystal resonator devices, Ecliptek provides a comprehensive line-up of surface mount and legacy through-hole products.

With this new partnership, Ecliptek’s global customer base can utilize Future’s strong technical and commercial competencies, including the largest inventory of Ecliptek product in the channel, to optimize design strategies and reduce time to market. With more than 160 locations in 42 countries, combined with its fully integrated global operations infrastructure, Future provides a unique opportunity to increase Ecliptek’s global position as a prominent supplier of crystals and oscillators.

Utilize Future’s strong technical and commercial competencies

“We are thrilled to establish this new partnership with Ecliptek,” says Jodie Metsos, corporate vice-president, Future. “We look forward to offering an even broader portfolio of frequency control products for our consumers on a global basis.”

“Future’s strong commitment to world class customer service is a natural complement to Ecliptek’s mission statement,” says Robert Zarrow, Ecliptek vice-president of sales and marketing, “There is a clear-cut symmetry between the core philosophies of the two companies that establishes a sound foundation for our partnership, firmly rooted in putting the customer first.”

As Ecliptek continues to add innovative new frequency control products, including its newest miniature 32.768kHz MEMS temperature compensated and standard clock IOT oscillators, the company’s ability to deliver immediate design solutions from Future’s inventory plays a significant role in the growth strategy looking forward. Customers will have access to a wide selection of fully documented Ecliptek frequency control products available to ship straight out of Future stock, reducing costs and lead times based on the strength of Future’s e-commerce platform.
