Press Release published by Anglia, under PR

“Position vindicates our business ethos” says CEO

Wisbech, 24 June 2024 Anglia Components has been ranked at #32 in the Global Top 50 Electronics Distributor list for 2024, as compiled by Supply Chain Connect, which ranks each distributor by annual global revenue. This is the first time Anglia has appeared on the global list, and the company is the only privately owned UK distributor to make it into the Top 50.

Steve Rawlins, CEO at Anglia commented: “This is a great acknowledgement and a reflection of the commitment and expertise demonstrated by our loyal and knowledgeable staff in all areas of the business. We are also indebted to our manufacturing partners, our agreements with them ensure that we have the ability to design-in the latest technologies and hold inventory in depth, which are key contributors to Anglia’s success over the last 50+ years.”

Anglia is constantly innovating in all aspects of its business. Great strides have been made to make Anglia a sustainable trading company – from the introduction of new packaging which reduces waste and is both reuseable and recyclable to smart building practices and environmentally-friendly company transport policies. Another initiative, Anglia Live EU – designed to support customers in Europe and launched at the behest of both suppliers and customers – also has a positive green impact by reducing component air miles. The Anglia Live eCommerce platform, which is now open to EU customers as well as those in the UK, means that orders placed up to 17:00 (CET) Monday to Thursday and 12:30 (CET) on Friday are despatched same day and delivered duty-paid to EU customers in one or two days.

“Anglia does not stand still”, added Rawlins. “We believe that by delivering excellent service to customers and suppliers alike, and by treating our people well and listening to them, Anglia is fulfilling a vital part in the electronic components supply chain, and we feel that this listing in the Supply Chain Connect top 50 vindicates our approach.”
