To do this, Avnet Integrated provides a broad spectrum of OEM technical services, field services, warranty and non-warranty repair services and asset disposal services for the telecom, imaging, defense/aerospace, medical, and IT markets.

“With this acquisition and integration, customers will continue to see the same level of world-class service that PDSi has provided,” said John D. Bair, vice president and CTO of Avnet Integrated and one of the founders of PDSi. “We are confident that the financial strength of Avnet and the service synergy with the rest of Avnet Integrated will allow us to bring enhanced value and services to our customers.”
