Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently observed the 35th anniversary of the opening of the company's branch in Seattle, Washington.
Future Electronics, founded in Montreal in November of 1968 by Robert Miller, President, expanded into the United States in 1972, opening its first American office in Boston, Massachusetts. The Seattle, Washington office opened in 1983, and is located on 17th Avenue just off the highway.
"Future Electronics' Seattle branch is dedicated to providing our customers with service excellence, world-class supply chain and advanced engineering programs that set us apart from the competition," said Alex Nowak, General Manager, Pacific Northwest. "We continue to invest in customer-tailored programs and additional staff to support our growth trajectory."
The Seattle area's high tech industry enjoyed rapid growth after WWII, when avionics (Boeing) and the space industry moved into the market. Today, it fosters a very large industry base including Medical, Industrial, Alternative Energy, Avionics/Aerospace, Audio, IOT, and Wireless.
Industry giants such as Microsoft, Google, Amazon, Intel, Philips Oral Care, Nintendo and Starbucks make their home there, and have supported the growth of a diverse technology ecosystem.
Company president Robert Miller congratulated the Seattle team on the occasion of the branch's 35-year milestone, and thanked everyone for their dedication.
