In their citation, the judges noted that they were impressed by the way that TT electronics had, “integrated its five manufacturing sites around the world into a global operation, offering customers with small to medium production volumes the facility to choose the manufacturing location best suited to the needs of each manufacturing project”. The presentation was made by Georg Steinberger, Vice President of Communications for Avnet EM EMEA to Jason Arnold, Business Development Manager at TT electronics.
