Future Electronics is certainly today’s fourth largest electronic piece distributor. Future Electronics, started in 1968 by Leader Robert Miller, is based in Montreal, Canada, functioning in 169 locations in 42 countries around the world, with around 5,500 employees.
As the 3rd major North American piece distributor, and the only real primary opponent to Avnet, Arrow Electronics, and also WPG Holdings, Future Electronics is an outlier of sorts. The company is privately held, carries virtually no debt, plus has reached much of the growth naturally. Unlike many of its competitors, Future Electronics is ready to hold inventory for lengthy amounts of time – meaning it behaves as a virtual lender to manufacturers and long-term partner to providers.
