A new base in the Amsterdam Area

Smith, one of the world’s leading distributors of electronic components, has opened its new European distribution center in the Amsterdam Area. The firm, which has offices in 16 cities around the world, is now operating from a 30,000-square-foot distribution center on Nijverheidsweg in Haarlem. The move completes a two-part relocation process that started last year, when the company moved its European headquarters to a new space in Amsterdam Zuidoost’s Alpha Tower.

Becoming part of Amsterdam's thriving tech scene

Smith’s new base in the Amsterdam Area will allow it to expand in a rapidly growing tech hot spot, it said. “The Netherlands is a vibrant part of Europe’s tech scene, and our new sales and operational locations put us right in the middle of the growth,” explained Smith’s Chief Globalization Officer Mark Bollinger. “We’re excited to keep expanding in this region, strengthen Smith’s European presence, and work closely with current and new local partners to deliver the tailored service and procurement they need to succeed.”
