Avnet again AMD’s top distributor

Phoenix — Avnet Technology Solutions said that its Computing Components business unit has been recognized as AMD’s top-performing global distributor for 2006.

The division was also honored as distributor of the year for the Asia Pacific, Europe and North America regions. This marks the fourth consecutive year that Avnet achieved the No. 1 global distribution position for AMD products.

“Avnet’s 35-year partnership with AMD has earned us a unique position of global strength and local expertise within the system builder channel,” said George Condon, senior vice-president and general manager, Avnet Computing Components. “During 2006, Avnet invested in high growth markets for AMD products by deploying new resources in China, Eastern Europe, India and Mexico. We plan to continue our success in 2007, in part by helping our channel partners develop innovative solutions that take advantage of AMD’s upcoming quad-core platforms.”

“We truly appreciate Avnet’s long-term commitment to AMD,” said Pierre-Yves Ferrard, AMD’s corporate vice-president for worldwide channel sales and marketing. “Relationships like these don’t develop overnight. Year after year, Avnet is there for us with an unrelenting passion for expanding our global reach, and helping our channel partners take advantage of new growth opportunities.”

Avnet Computing Components provides AMD processor-based desktop, notebook and server solutions and complementary components for value-added resellers, system builders and OEMs.
