    Digi-Key launches Global Capability Center

    Digi-Key Electronics, which offers the world’s largest selection of electronic components and automation products in stock for immediate shipment, has launched its first Global Capability Center (GCC). The 30,000 sq ft facility in Bhartiya City Bengaluru India was inaugurated in the presence of several key leaders from Digi-Key and its support partner, SMC Squared (SMC 2 ). Digi-Key’s facility in Bengaluru is the first of its kind to be set up by the company.

    The Bengaluru GCC facility will serve as an epicenter for technology and innovation for Digi-Key’s operations globally, supporting the organization in keeping pace with its suppliers’ and customers’ demands for services and innovation.
    Headquartered in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA, Digi-Key Electronics is recognized as both the leader and continuous innovator in the high-service distribution of electronic components worldwide.

    As the original pioneer in this space, Digi-Key has been a key resource for engineers and
    procurement professionals for nearly 50 years. Today, Digi-Key provides more than 10.8 million components from over 2,300 quality name-brand manufacturers. The Global Capability Center will be an integral part of Digi-Key’s long-term strategy.

In this period of strained supply chains, Digi-Key is playing a critical role in supplying the components that global companies and innovators need to design and build their systems. Our IT team is one of the many departments helping Digi-Key process and ship more than 27,000 packages per day.
