Farnell element14 to host Northern Supplier Day

Farnell element14, The Development Distributor, is inviting customers and potential customers to join them at its Northern Supplier Day at Jesmond Dene House, Newcastle-Upon-Tyne on Wednesday 26th April.

The event will bring together 21 suppliers from across the Farnell element14 technology segments to showcase products, tools and solutions that empower people and businesses to shape the future. Visitors will be able to view the latest products from key suppliers including Phoenix Contact, Rohm, Tektronix, TE, Fluke and Omron.

Representatives from Farnell element14 will also be on hand to discuss the support the business can provide to customers, from logistics to manufacturing and design services.

Peter Birks, Business President, Farnell element14, who is attending the event, said:

“In a market that is increasingly serviced over the web, we understand how important it can be to get time to talk face to face with customers and suppliers about new technologies and services. This event provides an opportunity for customers based in the North of England to see the latest products from key suppliers and network with industry colleagues. Hosting events such as this builds on the support we provide as the Development Distributor, either through our traditional distribution business or as a provider of design and manufacturing services, all to help our customers get their products to market faster.”

The Northern supplier event is aimed at design and maintenance engineers and buyers. Attendees at the event will receive a complimentary goody bag of components from supplier sponsors. For more information on the event and to confirm attendance please visit
