Our most sincere thanks to all employees of Murata for making this achievement possible.”“On behalf of everyone at Murata, I would like to say a big thank you to the TTI team for another fantastic year of strong business growth.” Comments Gary Atkins, Managing Director - European Distribution, Murata Europe.“Both companies have worked very hard to maintain the highest level of success. TTI have increased their focus on new products, expanded their customer base, invested in a wider and deeper range of inventory, and implemented many new initiatives that have continued to take our partnership to a new level. In previous years we have been very pleased and honored to win their supplier award, but to scoop up three new awards this year, and to achieve the status of top supplier for five consecutive years takes a major commitment from all concerned. This drive and business partnership is now deeply rooted into our business culture, and has become the normal way of working at all levels on a daily basis. Therefore, we have in place a very strong platform for continued success and partnership.”Photo caption: Left to Right, L-R Stefano Piccolo- General Manager TTI ItalyFelix Corbett- Director Supplier Marketing Europe TTIMarc Winfield – Regional VP Sales TTIJörg Frodl – Director Product Marketing Europe, TTIMarkus Brunhirl - Sales Engineer Murata EuropeGary Atkins - Managing Director European Distribution Murata EuropeThomas Altmann - Distribution Manager Murata EuropeGlenn Palmer - Managing Director European Distribution and National Accounts, Murata Europe, Terry Churcher - President, Murata Europe, Middle East & AfricaGeoff Breed – VP Marketing Europe TTIGlyn Dennehy – Senior Vice President & General Manager Europe TTIJamie Furness  - General Manager TTI UK, Ireland & South Africa.
