Farnell strikes global agreement with NI

Farnell has been appointed as an authorised distributor by NI, expanding its product portfolio to include NI software-connected test and measurement solutions for customers of all sizes.

NI is a global manufacturer of automated test systems used in production and validation testing. The addition of NI’s suite of products to Farnell’s leading Test portfolio will enable engineers to test faster, more accurately and with greater efficiency, leaving more time to focus on tests that require manual input.

Farnell is NI’s first distribution partner to offer direct sales and technical support globally and now offers the largest and most complete Test portfolio in the High Service Distribution market.

Commenting on the agreement James McGregor, Global Head of Test & Tools, Farnell said, “Farnell’s global reach and long history of expertise in distributing test and measurement equipment, as well as our broad customer base and on-hand technical support staff ensure that our customers will be fully supported in all their test needs. This new agreement, with one of the world’s foremost Test product manufacturers, will equip our customers with the very best custom tools and systems.

"The addition of NI to our portfolio expands and improves an already leading test and measurement range. Farnell is committed to delivering the very best in test systems and equipment to our customers around the world, and access to NI’s suite of products will enable engineers to carry out their testing with safety, precision and efficiency.”

NI and Farnell said that they would be providing engineers and enterprises with the flexibility, speed, and support they need to help them meet the demands of their business and customers.

“Connecting our customers to the right technologies and services helps them accelerate their pace of innovation and better serve their organisations and end customers,” said Jim Ramsey, vice president of the Global Partner program at NI. “Our relationship with Farnell will help us expand our reach into new markets and equip more engineers with the tools and technologies they need to take on their next big opportunity.”
