Fujitsu Electronics Europe re-invents itself as a distributor

January 22, 2016 // By Graham Prophet
Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe – with a name change to “Fujitsu Electronics Europe” - is seeking a new role in which it aims to act as a, “gateway to high-quality solutions by removing barriers to innovation”, entering the market as a new global distributor.

Previously operating as Fujitsu Semiconductor Europe (FSEU), the company now operates from offices in Langen (near Frankfurt), Munich, Milan, Budapest and Istanbul after changing its name and realigning its strategy. Focusing on more than just semiconductors, FEEU offers a broader portfolio of complex electronics solutions plus consulting services targeting applications in the automotive, manufacturing and communications sectors. FEEU says it will provide manufacturers with access to Fujitsu solutions and to tailored products from third-party providers, with a proven supply chain.

“We have been an active member of the European electronics market for over 30 years, and have developed a high level of consulting expertise and a strong customer base,” says Managing Director of the re-shaped organisation, Axel Tripkewitz. Tripkewitz was previously Vice President HR & Corporate Services at FSEU. “We are familiar with our customers’ roadmaps and can help them to implement these rapidly while maintaining optimum quality. Our declared mission is to remove the barriers to innovation. This is why we are focusing on adding solutions from key partners to our portfolio that give our customers a competitive advantage from innovation.”

FEEU’s portfolio is based on three pillars:

  1. Fujitsu universe: FEEU markets solutions from the Fujitsu world, with current examples including PCBs from Fujitsu Interconnect Technologies and DC/DC converters from FDK. The company also offers solutions from former Fujitsu companies such as Custom SoCs or imaging and graphics solutions from Socionext.
  2. Third-party solutions: As a specialist for complex products, FEEU monitors the market continuously for promising solutions. GaN power components from Transphorm feature in its portfolio.
  3. FEEU continues to manufacture and market a number of in-house solutions, such as FRAM.
