Changing faster to reach further - Body1

Technology’s next wonder is out there, somewhere. It may just be scribbles on a napkin right now, a possibility on paper, but tomorrow, it could change the world – with a little help from Avnet.

As a leading global technology solutions provider, we’ve always adapted to changing markets and needs. But with the recent acquisitions of Farnell and, we’re bridging the worlds of makers and manufacturers like never before.

Today, we can design, make, supply and deliver for customers of every size in every corner of the world – whether your product is still a notion on a napkin, in mass production or at any point in between. Avnet combines the agility needed to get to market first with nearly a century of close-knit relationships with technology’s most trusted global companies. Turning ideas no one’s heard of into products everyone knows.

Guiding possibilities - from Radio Row to the Information Age - Long Copy

Guiding possibilities - from radio row to the information age

If you think about it, radio was the start of the Information Age. The medium that connected people and stories, supported military intelligence and defense, and brought music and entertainment into people’s living rooms. Today, Avnet helps to do all of that, and so much more, from the heart of the technology supply chain. Though it all began with tinkerers in Charles Avnet’s first little components shop on Manhattan’s Radio Row, we’re still inspiring generations of technology creators almost 100 years later. Expansion boomed during WWII – and continues to this day – with Avnet on the leading edge of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Charles Avnet’s ambition and entrepreneurial spirit still guide the company forward. We thrive on smart ideas – big or small, time-tested or newly emerging. It’s kept us in the game for nearly a century. It’s not just a philosophy. It’s a business model. Because every great idea sparks inspiration for the next century of visionaries and beyond.
