Montreal, Canada ( getonlinepr) July 14, 2022 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently celebrated the 35th anniversary of the opening of the company’s office in Detroit, Michigan.
Future Electronics was founded in Montreal in 1968 by company President Robert Miller. It expanded into the United States in 1972, opening its first American office in Boston.
Future Electronics’ Detroit branch first opened its doors in 1987. The office is centrally located in Novi, supporting the eastern half of the state of Michigan.
The Detroit team is a mix of more recent hires and seasoned industry vets, with experience ranging from 2 to 32 years. This diversity contributes to the team’s dynamic, blending fresh perspectives with time-tested procedures, and contributing to exceptional customer service and record growth.
“I have been part of the Future Electronics‘ Detroit team for seven years, and I could not be more proud of what we have accomplished,” said General Manager Kasey Shelton. “Despite extremely challenging market conditions, Future Detroit continues to show grit and dedication to both the customer base and our suppliers.”
Because the Detroit office serves an automotive-centric market, it is not uncommon to spend three years working with a customer on a design. “The effort level is high, but the satisfaction we get bringing a program from concept, through design, and ultimately to launch and mass-production – well, there’s not much that compares to walking through a parking lot and seeing your product on the latest EV,” Shelton said.
With the number of semiconductors in vehicles continuing to rise, and with the dramatic growth of hybrid and electric vehicles, Shelton believes Future Detroit is uniquely positioned to make significant contributions to this changing market. “Through customer-specific programs and custom-tailored solutions, our goal is to help our customers – both historic and new – to navigate this complex market and bring their designs to fruition.”
Robert Miller, President of Future Electronics, congratulated the Detroit team on their 35-year milestone, and thanked everyone for their contributions to the success of the branch.
