NEWARK INONE TO LAUNCH DEDICATED WEBSITE FOR FEDERAL GOVERNMENT CUSTOMERS
Chicago, IL (APRIL 24, 2003) — Newark, a business of global Premier Farnell plc (NYSE:PFP, LSE:pfl) and the market-leading distributor of electronic components, value-added services, and eProcurement solutions in the Americas, will officially introduce its www.teamgov.com website May 6-8th at the 2003 GSA Expo, Booth #308, held at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center in San Antonio, TX.
The dedicated website is already operational and summarizes the exclusive benefits offered to federal government customers under Newark's US Federal Government General Services Administration (GSA) contract. Government purchasers can locate and order electronic components, cable, tools, test equipment, datacom products and more from 400+ manufacturers. The distributor's 2,000-page Catalog 120 may also be ordered online.
"Some websites allow for easy ordering. Others provide information. What makes us different is the way we deliver both," said Director of Government Business and Customer Markets, Doug DiVenere. "We are committed to delivering the highest level of personal service in the industry for our federal government customers."
In addition to a dedicated website, Newark has a specially trained team to assist federal government customers with selection, ordering, and customer service. TEAM GOV representatives can be reached at 1.800.TEAM.GOV (832.6468) Monday to Friday from 7am-9pm EST.
Newark products are now available on the GSA Advantage! and DoD procurement websites.
