Premier Farnell

Making a difference...

What does it take for a leading electronics component distributor to make a real difference to its employees, customers, suppliers, shareholders and community? It goes way beyond supplying best-in-class and new technologies from the top 440+ brands in the industry.

It means continually innovating, driving for change and improvement in all we do.

And that requires real commitment and investment, underpinned by the strong core values of a high-performance culture.

At Premier Farnell, we are driven to deliver results by being totally reliable, resourceful, customer focused and conducting ourselves with integrity. These values translate into every aspect of our business—from creating a responsible organization in which our employees are proud to work and our stakeholders have confidence… to supporting our customers with element14, an industry-leading technical portal and community that enables design engineers to research technology solutions and collaborate with colleagues early in the design process.

A business of global Premier Farnell, we have long taken our role as a corporate citizen seriously. Since 2002, we’ve had a detailed, measurable corporate social responsibility program that is focused on lessening the environmental impacts in the
communities in which we operate, the health and safety of our people and trading ethically with customers and suppliers. It is our belief that this approach is a source of business opportunity, improved competitiveness and sound business practice, as well as the right thing to do. You can read more about us at
