ANGLIA Components has celebrated its 40th anniversary and a year which saw it sign a distribution agreement with Analog Devices and further increase its market share.

The anniversary celebration was held in the company of an invited audience of over 100 suppliers, staff and industry guests.

Bill Ingram, company president, founded the business in his home in 1972. Today, Anglia employs over 150 people supporting a strong line card of franchises including Analog Devices and ST - two of the world’s top three analog semiconductor manufacturers.

Anglia has formed a series of market focussed business units - Anglia Lighting in 2007, Anglia HiRel in 2010, and Anglia Embedded which recently added Advantech, a world leading supplier of single board computers.

In a speech at the event, Mr Ingram said: “I am as excited about Anglia’s prospects today as I was 40 years ago when I formed the business. Anglia’s business has grown by 40% over the last five years, posting consistently strong year on year growth despite the ups and downs of the market. We’ve a great track record of growing quicker than the industry. It is the outstanding team that gives Anglia its future.”
