Avnet Celebrates 30-Year Collaboration with ebm-papst in the Americas

By Business Wire News   


Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT), a leading global technology distributor, and ebm-papst Inc., a top manufacturer of motors, fans and blowers, recently marked the milestone 30-year anniversary of their business relationship.

Since 1986, ebm-papst has leveraged Avnet’s world-class supply chain expertise and deep market reach to accelerate adoption of its diverse line of air moving solutions in markets including industrial, medical, lighting, renewable energy, power conversion, IT and telecom. ebm-papst’s best-in-class products have continued to evolve in response to customers’ changing technology needs. These products include tube axial fans, motorized impellers, centrifugal blowers, diagonal fans and cross flow blowers. Today, ebm-papst’s GreenTech philosophy drives new product development toward greater economy and ecology, yielding products with lower power consumption, lower noise and longer life, while still pushing the boundaries of performance. In addition, ebm-papst motor technology continues to move from traditional AC voltage to electronically commutated (EC) and energy saving (ESM) motor technology.

ebm-papst also offers a line of active cooling solutions for LED thermal management, which offers superior lumen output and color quality over an extended product life cycle. Active cooling dissipates heat directly from the core of the modules, allowing for less thermal resistance and making the entire assembly more efficient.

“Thermal management has been an ever growing challenge for makers of high tech devices, and for today’s developers of smart, IoT-enabled industrial machines and systems, there are few topics hotter than cooling. ebm-papst’s continued innovation has set the standard for energy conservation and cooling precision in today’s smart machines,” said Ed Smith, president, Avnet Electronics Marketing Americas. “Avnet is as proud to bring ebm-papst’s state-of-the-art fans and motors to our customers today as we were three decades ago, and we look forward to another 30 years of supporting ebm-papst as they continue to master the art and science of the intelligent, highly efficient movement of air.”

“We appreciate the long partnership we have with Avnet, which has expanded over the years. As a market leading distributor, Avnet allows us to reach more customers with our industry leading cooling solutions. The Avnet team has combined our broad range of products with our localized value-added manufacturing to bring value and service to our customers,” said Mark Shiring, president and CEO, ebm-papst. “At ebm-papst, we trust our long time relationship with Avnet will provide continued mutual success.”
