Company Background


GLYN is growing faster than the market.

Glyn TeamGLYN GmbH was founded in 1980 in Germany and is one of the leading electronic component specialist distributors in Europe. With an increase of over 30% to record sales of  EUR 100.6 million in 2005, GLYN has again achieved results that are far above the market growth.

This success is based on a high degree of customer satisfaction and retention, high value-added technical support, the long-term nature of the company’s project business, and an increased market presence. The major investments in design-in products are now paying off in solid customer relationships and a low dependency on commodity articles.

The dynamic and high-growth semiconductor market with its continuous stream of new technologies calls for qualified technical and commercial service that consistently meets and anticipates the changing needs of customers and the market.

This is exactly where GLYN demonstrates its strength as a specialty distributor.


GLYN Ltd is a sister company of GLYN GmbH and was established in September 2003 to expand GLYN's market presence beyond Europe and into Australia and New Zealand. GLYN recognises the strategic importance and the strong growth potential of the electronics and semiconductor market in Australia and New Zealand and is committed to becoming a major specialist distributor in the Australasian region.

GLYN Ltd has sales office and warehouse in Auckland, New Zealand and sales office in Sydney, Australia (ABN: 45573558770).

Our Value Proposition:

Increased competitive advantage and superior product differentiation by using our high quality, best-in-class components.
By comprehensively researching and constantly monitoring the trends in the semiconductor and electronic components industry and partnering only with manufacturers that have the best technology components at competitive prices in our focus areas, our customers can then develop high technology products with superior features and strong product differentiations against their competitions. Our customers also receive advanced access to our suppliers' product roadmaps enabling them to plan and execute their next generation product developments ahead of their competition thereby attaining first-mover advantage.

Faster product development, lower development costs, and faster time to market by leveraging on our expertise.

We offer our customers free design consultations and ongoing technical support to help them achieve their product design objectives and manufacturing timelines, all within their cost targets. Our highly experienced technical sales staff and application engineers undergo regular in-depth technical training with our suppliers enabling us along with our supplier's engineering team to closely collaborate with our customers in all stages of their product development cycle from technology research, product conceptualisation, proof-of-concept and prototype development, pilot run, product approvals, and mass production.

24/7 webshop access with next business day delivery to most areas in Australia and New Zealand.
We know that time is of the essence in most product development projects so we regularly stock development samples, evaluation kits and pilot run quantities in our local warehouses. We also ship to other countries with fast deliveries at low freight charges. Our webshop accepts secure credit card or bank deposit payments.

Consistently meet production schedules at reduced inventory costs due to our just-in-time deliveries and logistic support.
Our local warehousing facilities both in Sydney and Auckland and our free stock management service on forward orders enable deliveries with short lead time on customers' mass production orders. We also support regular deliveries to our customers' contract manufacturers located outside of Australia and New Zealand such as in Asia which means our customers can have peace of mind knowing that they are dealing with the same reliable people at Glyn from design to production whether they choose to manufacture locally or overseas.

Better cash flow management with our credit account facility.
We understand that companies have many competing demands for their finances so we help customers better manage their cash flow. On application we also provide credit account facilities at equitable terms to approved medium to high volume clients.

If you have a demand for electronic components and need premium support, Glyn will work alongside with you.
