Change in Sales from 2011: 5%
Acquisitions: Sager Electronics
Key Executives: TTI CEO Paul Andrews, Jr.; Mouser President & CEO Glenn Smith
In the electronics-focused distribution world, most people would say these companies do not belong together in a single listing because their operating models are completely different. While Mouser is a subsidiary of TTI, they operate independently. That said, because Mouser is a subsidiary of TTI and because the companies' parent company Berkshire Hathaway reports them together, we chose to follow suit. Total sales in 2011 for the two companies were $2.1 billion.
The key different between to the two companies is that TTI operates as a specialty product distributor while Mouser is more of a catalog operation, according to Barbara Jorgensen, community editor for ebn, an online community focusing on the electronics supply chain. Both have been extremely successful. (To see a more in-depth analysis of the global electronics distribution industry, see the recent report from Electronic Engineering Times.)
