Montreal, Canada (journalstart ) July 12, 2021 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of the opening of the company’s office in Phoenix, Arizona.
Future Electronics was founded in Montreal in 1968 by company President Robert Miller. It expanded into the United States in 1972, opening its first American office in Boston.
The Phoenix branch first opened its doors in 1986. The office also covers multiple metro areas outside of Phoenix, including Tucson, Albuquerque, New Mexico and Las Vegas, Nevada.
“This market has gone through quite a few changes over the years,” said General Manager Mike Lena. “While a good portion of it is dedicated to the defense industry, the balance has followed a familiar trend in the electronics industry, with many local OEMs outsourcing their manufacturing outside the region. This dramatic change in the customer landscape has forced the industry to adapt, but the Future team has not only remained a major player in the market, but its growth has outpaced that of the market.”
Lena said that the Phoenix branch has succeeded by leveraging the strength of Future Electronics. “The commitment to servicing customers design needs and its ability to manage customers business across the globe has been the key,” Lena said. “As the industry grows and evolves, you can count on the Future Phoenix team to be there, leading the way.”
Robert Miller, President of Future Electronics, congratulated the Phoenix team on their 35-year milestone, and thanked everyone for their contributions to the success of the branch.
