Hitachi Display Products Group has been voted best LCD supplier and manufacturer by Assodel, the Italian association of electronic component suppliers and distributors. Hitachi was presented with the prestigious award at the annual Assodel gala dinner held in Milan, Italy. Assodel has over 160 members, 410 customers and represents 95% of semiconductor and 70% of component distribution in Italy.
Introduced in 2003 by Assodel, its annual award ceremony is held for distributors to show their recognition and appreciation of the manufacturers that they believe have provided them with the best levels of service, support and product innovation. The award for the displays category was accepted by Fabio Munero and Stefano Borlini of Hitachi Display Products Group.
Fabio Munero, sales manager for Hitachi DPG in Italy commented “Hitachi Displays is very proud to receive this award and we would like to thank our distribution partners who are working to develop business with customers in the Italian market.” He continued, “The Assodel Award is recognition from distributors and the local electronics community for Hitachi’s focus on developing LCD modules dedicated to the industrial market.”
Mark Stanley, sales and marketing manager Hitachi DPG added, “Italy is a key European market for us and we see this award as a great achievement. We look forward to continuing the positive and profitable relationships we have with our Italian distributors. Hitachi will continue to be fully committed to producing LCD modules with exceptional performance, high quality and long term availability enabling our distributors to respond to market demands and maintain the highest levels of support to their customers.”
The Assodel Awards are awarded on the basis of a vote by members. Each manufacturer is rated on a number of criteria including innovation, product quality, after-sales support and technology. Hitachi DPG performed particularly well on the product quality and technology ratings.
