Responsible for Avnet’s marketing activities for electromechanics in Central Europe
(English) Thomas Kupfer’s professional background is a master craftsmanship in radio- and TV technologies.
In the early Nineties he started his electronics distribution career with Farnell Electronic Components as product manager for electromechanics and passives.
After an 8 years long excursion to the television business where he managed the engineering support department of a sports television plant, he returned back to his distribution roots by joining Deltron Components (a predecessor of Avnet Abacus) as senior product manager for electromechanics.
With the acquisition of Abacus by Avnet Thomas Kupfer took over the responsibility for Avnet’s marketing activities for electromechanics in Central Europe. With HMI trends moving forward to intuitive touch based systems, his focus has changed from classic electromechanic components like switches and relays to sensor solutions and wireless communication.
