Astute Inc spearheads major growth plan in relocation to Austin, Texas

Astute Electronics Inc, the Americas division of global electronics distributor, Astute Electronics, is relocating to a new, world-class headquarters and technology hub in Austin, Texas, from June 1st 2020, as part of the company’s rapid Americas expansion and targeted business growth.

The new facility will be outfitted with state-of-the-art inspection, test, and storage equipment to better serve and protect their customers from poor quality and the risk of counterfeit material infiltrating the supply chain – building on Astute’s 31-year legacy of leadership in risk mitigation and sourcing solutions.

“Astute is one of the industry’s best kept secrets, just waiting to be unleashed on the broader market – there is no better place on the planet than Austin, TX to build that platform,” says Chief Operating Officer, Mark Pollard.

“Not only is Austin ripe with tech talent and ideally located to serve both coasts and Latin America, but it is also the new home of the Army Futures Command – with whom Astute will engage with on the design phase of tomorrow’s most advanced weapons.”

The headquarters will house the executive team, led by seasoned professionals Mark Pollard, Dane Reynolds, and Hugo Ogalde – along with top talent across all areas of the business. Aran Coker, International Business Director in the UK, will coordinate shared strategies with the new leadership team while executing integration initiatives worldwide.

The company’s Virginia operation will transition to a sales and purchasing Center of Excellence primarily supporting its long-standing Aerospace & Defense customers.

The new address of Astute Electronics Inc from 1 June, 2020, will be: 500 Center Ridge Drive, Suite 600, Austin, TX 78753
