In recognition of positive sales development and punctual, reliable delivery, US-based American distributor Digi-Key recently presented supplier awards to both TDK and EPCOS. Their combined volume now makes TDK-EPC the distributor's second-largest supplier of passive electronic components. TDK-EPC is constantly expanding the portfolio it sells via Digi-Key. The distributor is growing on the European market in particular, where its sales more than doubled year on year in the first quarter of 2010.

Digi-Key is one of the world's biggest catalog distributors. The company employs more than 2000 people and supplies customers in 170 countries in an average of 48 hours from its headquarters in Thief River Falls, Minnesota/ USA. To maintain this delivery standard, it keeps 470,000 products permanently in stock. On behalf of TDK-EPC, Digi-Key even ships very small quantities to developers and laboratories, for example.
