Digi-Key plans to expand the diversity of its products and suppliers in new product categories with its ‘Digi-Key Marketplace’
Leading electronic components distributor, Digi-Key Electronics recently announced that it expanded its portfolio in 2022 by adding over 550 new suppliers across its core business: Digi-Key Marketplace and Fulfilled by Digi-Key program. They also added over 75,000 new Stock Keeping Units (SKUs) to their core business unit last year.
The official release noted AirBorn, Endress+Hauser, EPC Space, Isabellenhutte and Schneider Electric as some of the key suppliers added to the Digi-Key portfolio in 2022. It further said that long-term suppliers, like Amphenol, continue to expand their offerings by adding new products from various divisions.
The ‘Fulfilled by Digi-Key’ program uses the company’s warehouse and logistics centre and brings the capabilities of a 3PL warehouse along with its global customer base and transaction website to market, sell, pick, pack, and ship a supplier’s products globally.
According to the company, Digi-Key Marketplace is a single source for all aspects of technology innovation, including bare PCB boards, industrial automation, test and measurement, IoT solutions etc. Digi-Key plans to expand the diversity of its products and suppliers in new product categories with its Digi-Key Marketplace, which claims to typically ship products within 1–5 days directly from the supplier.
Vice president of global supplier management for Digi-Key, David Stein remarked: “In a year where the electronics industry was moving toward more normalcy, Digi-Key continued its commitment to be the industry’s distributor with the largest supplier portfolio and product offering. 2022 was another year of enhancing our line card as we continue to offer the newest technologies and reinforce our position as the leader of the most comprehensive selection of electronic components across all product groups.”
