Mouser’s site in Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas sits on 78 acres.

DALLAS & FORT WORTH, Texas – Semiconductor and electronic components supplier Mouser Electronics, Inc., is expanding its global headquarters and distribution centre. Construction is under way to add more than 125,000 square feet to the DC, as well as a new 50,000 square-foot office building on Mouser’s campus, located south of Dallas-Fort Worth, Texas.

On completion, Mouser’s 78-acre global headquarters and DC will consist of one million square feet to accommodate Mouser’s inventory of one million unique SKUs for products and technologies from over 750 electronic component manufacturers.

In 2018 Mouser’s sales hit US$1.9 billion, and the company is on track to surpass that number this year. All this comes as Mouser has expanded its full-time global workforce to more than 2,400 and is set to provide local customer service in four new global locations: Brazil, Poland, Vietnam, and the Philippines.

“With the rapid increase in technological advancements such as IoT, electric vehicles, artificial intelligence, robotics, and 5G, we definitely find ourselves in a very robust and fortunate position,” explained Glenn Smith, Mouser’s president and CEO.

“We are planning for future growth as our customer needs increase.”

Today, Mouser’s 24-hour global DC handles tens of thousands of orders per day, processing and shipping — same day in most cases — to over 600,000 customers in 220 countries/territories. Over the past several years, the global distributor has made significant capital investments in state-of-the-art, automated equipment to process orders with best-in-class efficiency and accuracy.
