Specialist distributor Astute, based in Stevange, UK, has a focus on hard-to-find and obsolete electronic components and has its own in-house counterfeit testing laboratory.
Ismosys will become an independent member of the Astute Electronics Group, continuing to drive revenue for the component manufacturers it represents and their distribution and channel partners says Astute’s managing director Geoff Hill. Ismosys has a team of both commercial, sales and technical expertise covering all 27 countries within the EU as well as the UK, Turkey, and India. Rather than stocking components, the company works to get parts designed into applications.
“Ismosys and Astute have both achieved a truly integrated approach within the electronics industry, offering design-led distribution and representation services which bring the customer closer to the manufacturer’s full range of products and capabilities,” said Hill
“Ismosys is now part of Astute Electronics, which is a major milestone in our evolution after more than 26 years in the electronics market,” said Roberto Blanco, the new President of Ismosys. “We are now starting a new stage full of synergies and new opportunities for both companies. Ismosys will operate as an independent subsidiary with the same business model and running business as usual.“
“After 26 years of developing an independent sales and marketing organisation, the time has come to move forward in a different direction, and I am personally delighted that Geoff Hill and Astute have assumed responsibility for the future strategy and direction of ISMOsys as well as the vast majority of the existing ISMOsys team who have gone along with the acquisition. I wish them all every success for the future and thank them for the years of dedicated service and commitment they gave to me and the business,” said Nigel watts, outgoing founder of Ismosys.
