We spoke to the Vice President of TTI, Geoff Breed about the evolution of the company and the lasting importance of print.
What can you tell us about TTI?
TTI is a global company and the leading authorised distributor of passive, connector, electromechanical and discrete components. Our headquarters is in Fort Worth, Texas where the company was founded, but we have European and Asian regional headquarters as well. Our centralised warehouse is about 20 kilometres North West of downtown Munich.
We’re an authorised distributor, which means that we act on behalf — and as a partner for — specific manufacturers of components, providing end customers with logistics, technical support and inventory on the shelf. These manufacturers range from technology specific niche companies to huge multinational blue chip corporations.
Our inventory of electronic components can be found in just about everything, from cell phones to cars, household appliances, computer systems and audio visual equipment right through to the industrial equipment that packs food for supermarkets. It’s as far reaching as air craft, defence equipment and radars. Of recent significance are the components for medical ventilator systems that we are distributing to help support governments and health care services around the world.
