Patrick Zammit – President, Avnet

We have very exciting growth plans for Avnet Time across Europe and the acquisition of Flint is a great example of our commitment to grow IP&E in the region.

As part of the acquisition, both customer sets will gain access to industry leading franchises that have not been part of our respective portfolios.
