Digi-Key Dropping Printed Catalog

Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corporation has ceased production of its print catalog and will offer its products exclusively online beginning immediately. By eliminating its printed catalogs, Digi-Key's goal is to help preserve the environment while continuing its shift to a totally integrated, global electronic-components distributor.

Additionally, Digi-Key will produce online-only versions of TechZoneâ„¢ Magazine beginning with the June 2011 Lighting Solutions issue. Customers will be able to access both the product catalog and TechZone Magazines as downloadable PDFs and interactively online. TechZone Magazine is mobile-enabled for users with an iPhone, iPod, iPad or Android-compatible mobile device. Both the Digi-Key interactive and PDF catalogs will be mobile-enabled in the future.

"By producing interactive and PDF catalogs and magazines, Digi-Key will significantly reduce its impact on the environment while providing customers with efficient, virtual access to Digi-Key's expansive product offerings," said Mark Larson, president and COO, Digi-Key Corporation. "Our portfolio of websites and online resources will give our customers greater access to Digi-Key's in-stock products, while providing unparalleled information about real-time pricing, lead-times and product specifications, as well as videos, reference designs, custom editorial content and more."

Digi-Key Corporation focuses on providing customers with superior service, which includes product selection and availability, on-time delivery and responsiveness. Using leading-edge processes and state-of-the-art technologies, Digi-Key serves a global customer base from its 600,000-square-foot facility in Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA.
