Avnet announces that the company has been recognized by Gartner as a high-tech supply chain organization.
Avnet unique ability to deliver rapidly scalable, globally available and customized supply chain solutions made it rank in the top 10 of the 2018 Gartner Supply Chain Top 25 Results list in the High-Tech industry category.
“There has been a great deal of fanfare over the past several years about the ‘democratization’ of technology development and manufacturing, but one aspect of this potentially game-changing trend that is infrequently discussed is the way in which it has elevated the strategic role supply chain and operations must now play to differentiate an organization’s products and services,” said Avnet senior vice president Lynn Torrel, who heads up the Velocity group. “Avnet is very proud to be recognized by Gartner for its high tech supply chain initiatives.”
Each year, Gartner determines “the companies to include in the Supply Chain Top 25 study by starting with the combined Fortune Global 500 and Forbes Global 2000 lists” and compiles the Top 25 Supply Chain ranking, as well as ratings for vertical markets, including high tech, life sciences, industrial, retail, automotive, and aerospace and defense.
Avnet’s supply chain group, Velocity, manages large elements of the technology supply chain for many companies.
Velocity was recently named a semi-finalist for Gartner’s 2018 High-Tech Manufacturing Supply Chainnovators award.
