Mansfield-based Mouser Electronics Inc. is expanding its global headquarters and distribution center, adding more than 125,000-square feet to the distribution center as well as a new 50,000 square-foot office building on Mouser’s campus.
Upon completion of the new construction, Mouser’s 78-acre global headquarters and massive distribution center will consist of 1 million square feet to accommodate Mouser’s vast inventory of 1 million unique SKUs for products and technologies from over 750 electronic component manufacturers.
“With the rapid increase in technological advancements such as IoT, electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, robotics, and 5G, we definitely find ourselves in a very robust and fortunate position,” explained Glenn Smith, Mouser’s president and CEO. “We are planning for future growth as our customer needs increase.”
Mouser cited a positive industry outlook, double-digit revenue growth and the addition of many new manufacturer partners as being reasons for the expansion.
In 2018 Mouser’s sales hit $1.9 billion, and the company is on track to surpass that number this year. All this comes as Mouser has expanded its full-time global workforce to more than 2,400 and is set to provide local customer service in four new global locations: Brazil, Poland, Vietnam, and the Philippines.
Mouser stocks the widest selection of authorized components and continues to expand its vast line card with additional manufacturers from major electronic component product categories, including semiconductors, embedded modules, optoelectronics, passives, interconnects and wire/cable assemblies, electromechanical, power, test and measurement, and tools.
“Adding new products and manufacturers reinforces our steadfast commitment to our customers as a single destination for all the components and development tools necessary for the design process,” Smith said. “Our focus on providing the industry’s widest breadth of products is resonating with our growing customer base of engineers and procurement agents in every corner of the world.”
Today, Mouser’s 24-hour global distribution center handles tens of thousands of orders per day, processing and shipping — same day in most cases — to over 600,000 customers in 220 countries/territories. Over the past several years, the global distributor has made significant capital investments in state-of-the-art, automated equipment to process orders with best-in-class efficiency and accuracy.
Mouser Electronics is a Berkshire Hathaway company.
