SILICA, a division of Avnet Electronics Marketing EMEA, provides a comprehensive range of products from 22 semiconductor manufacturers along with design support and the full set of logistical and value added services to industrial and commercial customers throughout Europe.

We have built a strong reputation within the distribution industry by continually adding value within the supply chain to improve both our customers and suppliers results. Today, SILICA is the third largest semiconductor distributor in Europe, employs more than 550 people and operates 36 branch offices.

With local teams of application engineers and technology specialists, Silica is dedicated to support customers technically and to provide the design-in expertise needed for them to compete successfully.

We understand that the products and support we provide are critical to both the day to day and longer term success of our customers. Therefore our market strategy is based on reliability, in-depth design support and extensive customer service offerings. Silica’s local engineering and sales employees understand both commercial and technical issues and how they relate to the needs of our customers - rather than technical or business issues in isolation. This means a rapid return on investment, short time-to-market cycles and genuine competitive advantage for our customers.
