Astrex Electronics Acquires California Distributor TIM-CO
Astrex Electronics has acquired TIM-CO, a distributor of electronic components focused on commercial aviation, space, oil and gas, industrial, and military markets. TIM-CO will continue to operate from its Simi Valley, Calif.-based location as a standalone branch of Astrex.
“We are very pleased to welcome the management and employees of TIM-CO to the Astrex team,” said Astrex President Mike McGuire. “Collectively, the senior management teams have more than 140 years of experience in the high-reliability interconnect market. Joining forces enables both companies to leverage this experience and to provide a broader range of products and services to our respective customer bases.”
TIM-CO President James Clarizio added, “The opportunity to better serve our customers was the deciding factor in our decision to partner with Astrex. The ability to offer a broader range of products with better service via an expanded geographic footprint is something our customers will greatly value.” Clarizio will serve as general manager of Astrex’s West Coast branch.
Astrex and TIM-CO now offer an expanded product line as a franchised distributor for more than 25 premier electronic component OEMs.
