Mouser Electronics, Inc., a global distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, has received the TDK European Distribution Award for the third time. The Gold distribution award recognizes Mouser’s 2020 performance based on inventory management, operational excellence, terms and business performance.

Mouser Electronics, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is an authorized semiconductor and electronic component distributor focused on “New Product Introductions” from manufacturer partners. Serving the global electronic design engineer and buyer community, the global distributor’s website,, features more than 5 million products from over 1,100 manufacturer brands. It further serves over 630,000 customers in 223 countries/territories from its 1 million-square-foot, distribution facilities in Dallas, Texas.

TDK, the Japanese electronics manufacturer, produces a range of technologies, including passive components, sensor products, magnetic products and energy products. The company presents multiple awards each year, with Rutronik Electronics winning the “International Volume Distributors” category, as it did the previous year.

The best local distributor was the Austrian company EPi Components whilst two other awards were given in the “Local Distributors” category, with silver going to Gateway Electronic Components in the UK and bronze to AVIS KS in Slovakia.

TDK’s High Service Distributor Award was updated in 2020, with the award criteria being raised in line with an adjusted scorecard system, providing a “higher benefit for the end customers”. Under the new system, Mouser is the only high service distributor to be recognized this year with the TDK European award.
