North America is Anixter's largest market by far (71 percent of total revenues), but the global distribution company continued its international expansion in 2012, completing an acquisition in South America and entering a joint venture in Saudi Arabia.
In 2013, Anixter (NYSE: AXE) plans to focus on developing a presence in Electrical and Electronic Wire and Cable and OEM Supply in countries where its current presence is large but limited primarily to the Enterprise Cabling and Security Solutions end market.
Anixter serves diverse markets. In 2012, it found particular strength in natural resource extraction and power generation.
