Astute Electronics – 2020 and Beyond

Astute Celebrates 30 Years of Success

Astute Electronics, a world leader in electronics distribution, global procurement and supply-chain management, has observed the notable milestone of 30 years of excellence in 2019.

With a recent £5m investment in its buildings and facilities, including a £1m investment in in-house counterfeit test laboratories, Astute is proud to offer a complete cradle-to-grave solution offering design, fulfilment, and support to its ever growing global customer base.

Since its inception 30 years ago, Astute has evolved from being the flexible supplier, to offering a complete supply chain solution to the customer via its e-design, safe supply, and 3rd party logistics (3PL) services.

Astute has always been customer-led and will take time to engage with the customer about the requirements they need, diagnosing the vital issues together and implementing a program that will manage efficiencies, realise the best output and thus allow the customer to focus on their core skills.

Investing in not just its facility but also its people, Astute now employs more than 180 staff across five continents, with staff benefiting from a team driven, supportive and inclusive environment, which promotes self initiative and individuality.

Trusted for three decades, Astute is rightly proud of its reputation as market leader in the UK and with offices in nine countries, Astute is strengthening its global offering, leveraging its experience, expertise and platforms to streamline supply chains and offer cost savings and efficiencies to customers worldwide.

“The last 30 years have been exciting, challenging, and satisfying, and by reinvestment in the future of the business, we’ve bolstered the foundations for the years ahead which is crucial to us.” commented Geoff Hill, Managing Director of Astute.

“I’ve loved every minute, there have been challenges but the rewards outweigh those. It’s tremendous to be involved in the business and I’m extremely proud to have got to where we are today. The most exciting thing is what the future holds.”

 

2020 and Beyond

As a brand new decade begins, Astute will look to harness its 30 years of industry experience and create its future industry roadmap; becoming the ultimate design partner and offering optimal tools and resources for the design engineers in its customer base.

Astute will continue to invest in its people – nurturing a positive working environment for its staff to foster the development of the next industry superstars. In an increasingly unpredictable global marketplace, including ongoing challenges such as Brexit, tariffs and sustainability, Astute will provide robust and reactive advice to its customers as global micro/macro environments evolve, leaving them free to maximise their business opportunities and streamline their supply chains.
