Avnet Abacus, a distributor of interconnect, passive, electro-mechanical plus complimentary lead technologies, has announced it has been awarded the franchise to sell the portfolio of rugged DEUTSCH connectors from TE Connectivity.

The DEUTSCH family of environmentally sealed electrical connectors has been a market-leader for industrial and commercial vehicles and other applications for more than 40 years, especially where dirt, moisture, salt spray and vibration can otherwise contaminate or damage electrical connections. It includes the HD and DT ranges of robust-circular and rugged-rectangular connectors, respectively, especially designed for industrial and commercial vehicle applications.

“In recognition of our two companies’ close strategic relationship, TE Connectivity is delighted to award Avnet Abacus the franchise to distribute the market-leading DEUTSCH family of vehicular connectors.

“The combination of TE Connectivity’s product expertise and Avnet Abacus’ design capabilities should prove a winning formula for the engineering community,” said Barry Stunt – Senior Manager, ICT Distribution & Inside Sales EMEA, TE Connectivity.

Rudy Van Parijs, President Avnet Abacus, added, “The decision by TE Connectivity’s Industrial and Commercial Transportation Business Unit to select Avnet Abacus as an additional distribution partner for its DEUTSCH family of connector products represents a great opportunity to grow sales and increase the customer base for this market-leading technology and one which we will firmly embrace.”
