Mouser Electronics has been named the 2019 Outstanding Large Business of the Year by the Mansfield (Texas) Area Chamber of Commerce at the Chamber’s Annual Awards Gala last week.
This is the second time for Mouser to receive this top award. Additionally, Mouser received a commendation from state Sen. Beverly Powell, who congratulated Mouser on the award and the company’s commitment to the Mansfield community.
The Outstanding Large Business of the Year award is given to an active Chamber member that makes a significant impact on the local business climate and community at large, exemplifying innovative leadership with its employees and clients while exhibiting outstanding customer service.
Mouser, one of the world’s Top 10 global distributors of semiconductors and electronic components, is the city’s largest private employer, with more than 1,800 people at its global headquarters and distribution center. The company employs over 2,500 in 27 locations worldwide.
“I speak for all of us at Mouser as I thank the Chamber for this great honor,” said Glenn Smith, Mouser Electronics’ President and CEO. “We are very much a global company but we call Mansfield home, and it is always gratifying to know that our efforts to positively affect our community are appreciated.”
Mouser supports not just the Chamber, but also many organizations, events and programs throughout the Mansfield community at large, particularly in education. The company has long been engaged with educational initiatives that promote science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
Mouser provides resources and educational grants locally to the Ben Barber Innovation Academy, the Jerry Knight STEM Academy, the Mansfield Independent School District Education Foundation, Mansfield Public Library, the Mansfield Parks and Recreation Department, Keep Mansfield Beautiful, and Mansfield Commission for the Arts, along with many other local organizations.
The Outstanding Large Business award is the latest in a long list of awards presented to Mouser in recent years. Those honors include proclamations from the City of Mansfield, as well as a Proclamation from the Texas Senate, in recognition of Mouser’s economic, civic and educational contributions, including being named an Employer of Excellence for Tarrant County. Smith received the Top Public CEO Award in 2019 from Fort Worth Business Press.
