In addition to making world-class Cherry products more broadly available to distributors and OEMs, the new partnership expands Century’s existing services to the manufacturing community by enabling the company to provide deeper bill of material coverage to complement its product offering.
“This partnership marks a milestone in Century’s evolution by enabling us to provide even broader material coverage competitively to the marketplace,” said Evan Stieglitz, company co-president.
Century’s strategic presence in Mexico is said to have been a factor in the finalizing the distribution agreement, he said, adding that as the new relationship takes hold, Century will focus on key suppliers to The Boeing Company, Lockheed Martin, General Electric, and Airbus.
