Beijing, China (November 29, 2016). PEI-Genesis was awarded an “Excellent Electronic Component Distributor Award” in the category of “Rising Star” by Electronics Supply and Manufacturing-China. The survey results and awards were presented at ESM-China's annual Supply Chain Forum held at the Marco Polo Shenzhen Hotel, on October 14, 2016. Awards were presented in eight categories ranging from Top 10 Local Distributors to Best Logistics to Outstanding Executive of the Year. The Rising Star Award is given to companies with revenue growth higher than the industry average and a business or service innovation.

ESMC began giving the Excellent Electronic Component Distributor Awards in 2001 with the aim to commend distributors that are highly recognized in the industry. This year a panel of industry analysts and many ESM-China readers voted for China’s most preferred distributors.

In May of 2015, PEI-Genesis opened a 54,000 sq ft production facility in Zhuhai, China to bring its unique build-to-order service model for high reliability, harsh environment connectors to the Chinese market. The sales team and operational staff will grow to over 40 in 2017. PEI’s China team supports customers with the same speed and exceptional service customers have come to expect from PEI in North America and Europe.

“We are excited and honored to win the Rising Star Award given by Electronics Supply and Manufacturing-China,” said Alex Tsui, Managing Director, PEI-Genesis Asia. “First I’d like to thank our customers. It is their acknowledgement that put us here. We are committed to our Chinese customers and will continue to provide the highest quality products and service.”
