Onecall, the dedicated education business from Farnell and CPC, has been awarded a new two-year contract by North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC). This now confirms its Approved Supplier Status to supply Test and Measurement (T&M) equipment, tools and fixings and electronic components, including development boards and kits, to universities and associated parties in the UK.
“The substantial investment made by Farnell over the last 18 months has enabled us to offer customers our best ever range of products, introduce key new suppliers such as Renesas, as well as improve the distribution service with a new $60m warehouse in Leeds. We can now offer Onecall customers even greater choice when equipping labs and updating equipment, supporting the engineers of tomorrow by giving them first-hand experience of market-leading products and enabling them to be productive and successful when entering the workforce,” said Mathew Thorpe, Regional Sales Director, UK/Ireland and Benelux for Farnell.
Onecall provides education establishments with access to the Farnell and CPC global portfolio of 950,000+ products, including market-leading Single-Board Computers such as Raspberry Pi and micro:bit, as well as other leading SBC brands such as Arduino, BeagleBoard and Particle.
