THIEF RIVER FALLS, MN – Electronic components distributor Digi-Key Corp. reported second-quarter sales were up 7% year-over-year, “thanks in part to our developing customer base in European, Middle Eastern and Asian countries,” according to Mark Larson, president and COO.

“This year European sales in particular have increased by over 22%.”

Digi-Key’s second-quarter sales in Germany rose more than 25% compared to last year, and in Italy, sales grew nearly 16% compared to the same quarter in 2010.

In a move to be more environmentally friendly, Digi-Key recently ceased the distribution of its more than 2,900-page print catalog.
