Digi-Key Corporation Launches New Website for Israel

Global distributor offers free shipping on orders over ₪800,
local customer and engineering support

THIEF RIVER FALLS, Minnesota, USA – Global electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation, recognized by design engineers as having the industry’s largest selection of electronic components available for immediate shipment, today announced the launch of its new website for Israel, www.digikey.co.il.

“Digi-Key’s business model aligns almost perfectly with the needs and demands of a major share of the Israeli market,” said Mark Larson, Digi-Key’s president and COO. “Israel is recognized internationally for its strength in product design as well as its strengths in high mix/low volume production. Digi-Key is highly focused and is the dominant distributor in terms of supporting electronic design engineers in the prototyping and design process. Digi-Key is recognized for its ability to support new product introduction runs and high mix/low volume production.”

“Digi-Key has rapidly grown to become the 5th largest distributor of electronic components in the world,” Larson added. “We have a strong and growing presence in both Europe and Asia. The addition of Israel to our global expansion efforts marks a considerable milestone in Digi-Key’s 40 year history.”

The Israel website can be viewed in both Hebrew and English. Customers placing orders using the Israel website may do so in the local currency, the Israeli Shekel (ILS).

“Digi-Key profiles our inventory to meet worldwide demand and we are excited that the new Israeli website will make the industry’s broadest selection of product for immediate delivery available in local language and currency,” Larson said. “The type of product we are currently selling in Israel is very representative of our overall demand and shipping patterns with emphasis on products ranging from analog and other semiconductors to discrete, passive, and electromechanical products.”

Additionally, www.digikey.co.il has been designed to accommodate and to promote greater ease of use for our customers and greater visibility for our suppliers.
