Founded in 1995, Alpha Micro is a successful independent specialist franchised distributor of components for telematics and M2M. It is one of the companies pioneering the concept of “design based” distribution, using its in-house software and hardware capabilities as a platform to sell its franchised components. Alpha Micro’s design group offers a comprehensive technical support package ranging from application support, through to complete turnkey designs. The company services the machine to machine (m2m), telematics, medical, energy monitoring, security and automotive sectors with components from world leading manufacturers. The franchised line up includes AXSEM, EnOcean, FTDI, GainSpan, Laird Technologies, Lantronix and u-blox. Through these global partnerships Alpha Micro has built an enviable reputation for product knowledge, customer service and innovation.
What really sets Alpha Micro apart from the competition is its design-based approach to distribution. A team of in-house design engineers work at integrating components from the franchised product lines into board-level designs, adding real value to the solutions on offer and providing customers with products that exactly meet their varied and demanding requirements.
