Circuit protection leader Littelfuse appoints Anglia as distributor

Wisbech, UK, Monday, 16 January 2017 – Anglia has significantly strengthened and enhanced its circuit protection portfolio with its appointment as UK and Ireland distributor by Littelfuse, the global leader in circuit protection.

The announcement gives Anglia customers access not only to Littelfuse cartridge and surface-mount fuses, resettable fuses and fuse holders, but also to its suppression products such as Metal Oxide Varistor (MOV’s), Gas Discharge Tubes (GDT), TVS Diodes and Arrays and SIDACtors. Anglia will also be offering and supporting Littelfuse magnetic sensors and reed switches, as well as the power semiconductor range encompassing IGBT, Rectifier and Thyristor modules, Schottky diodes, Ultrafast rectifiers and Silicon Carbide (SiC) diodes.

Commenting, David Pearson, Technical Director at Anglia said, “Littelfuse is one of the best known and most respected brands in electronics today. Through innovation and technology-driven acquisition it has built up a portfolio of solutions without parallel. Starting from its heritage of circuit protection, it has become a leader in suppression, power semiconductors and other areas too. Our new relationship with Littelfuse gives us access to an extensive range of devices that we currently aren’t able to offer.”

He continued, “Additional products Anglia can offer as a result of the new relationship include LED protection devices and surge protection modules for outdoor lighting. These will be of great interest to customers of Anglia Lighting.”

Paul Turner, EMEA Sales Director, Electronics Business Unit at Littelfuse added, “We realized there are segments of the UK market that we were not addressing and this was holding back Littelfuse’s growth. It became clear that Anglia is very much engaged with these segments. The focus and energy that we see at Anglia gives us confidence that we can now address these segments and mutually enjoy accelerated growth.”

Anglia has put in place a comprehensive stock profile of the most popular Littelfuse lines, which are listed on Anglia Live with immediate effect. Datasheets for non-stocked lines that are recommended for new designs have also been loaded onto Anglia Live, for easy reference by Anglia customers.
