2015 Top 25 Global Franchised Distributors
EBN’s list of the top 25 global franchised distributors is like any A-list party: at first glance, it’s clear that all the right people are in attendance. In fact, little has changed on the list, as the top five winners have remained stable, and the list welcomed only a single newcomer (Macnica).
The price of entry to the 2015 Top 25 acclaim has risen pretty substantially, with the bottom of the list capturing $69.7 million in sales for calendar year 2014, compared to the bar of just $43.24 million set last year. As in the 2014 ranking, the top ten distributors all report well over a billion dollars in annual sales.
Macnica made its debut on the list at spot #6 with over $2 billion in sales—an impressive start. This global leader in design services and franchised distribution focuses on semiconductors and networking products. Macnica’s subsidiary divisions are located in Japan, Asia, America, and Europe. The company’s roots are in Japan, and the company started its work in 1972 as a company selling electronic devices. The company opened its United States branch in California in 1995.
