SCHAUMBURG, IL--(Marketwire - Jul 31, 2011) - Omron Electronic Components LLC presented Digi-Key with the 2011 Partnership Excellence award at the annual Electronics Distribution Show in Las Vegas. Accepting the award on behalf of Digi-Key was Mr. Mark Larson, President.

Criteria for the award were judged over Omron's fiscal year, ending March 31, 2011, and was awarded upon overall partnership at levels within both organizations. Superior partnership was demonstrated at all levels, from Omron's Electronic and Mechanical Components (EMC) corporate HQ, to Omron Electronic Components Americas' executive management team and distribution sales team, as well as great strengthening in the field with the Business Development Managers. Growth in point-of-sale was exceptional in fiscal year 2010, with even greater growth internationally.
