Author: Mick Elliott, Contributing Editor

Authorised distributor Lane Electronics has successfully passed an audit for its EATON Souriau value-added distribution facility.

In addition to being able to supply a range of Eaton’s Souriau connectors from its comprehensive stock, Lane Electronics also provides a value-added assembly service.

With access to a wide range of additional component parts its in-house Value-Added Distribution (VAD) capability means the company are able to assemble and supply many more standard connectors that can be custom configured and assembled to order and help customer’s get new products to market quickly and reliably.

To retain its qualified assembling distributor status a regular audit is required and Patrick Sangleboeuf, VAD Product Manager of Eaton Interconnect Technologies Division recently visited Lane Electronics’ facility in Sussex to conduct a comprehensive evaluation of the in-house assembly. This covered the popular D38999/MIL-DTL-38999 series I and III, their commercial equivalents 8LT and 8D and derivatives, as well as the 8STA and the micro-38999 ranges.

Nick Wheeler, Sales Director of Lane Electronics says: “We are very pleased that the audit of our Souriau connector VAD facility by Eaton was a success, and we can continue to offer our customers a fully certified fast-turnaround bespoke connector service.”
