WKK Distribution Ltd., the leading supplier of industrial machinery and materials in Asia, announces that it was awarded a 2017 Global Technology Award in the category of Best Distributor – Asia.

Hamed El-Abd, Non-Executive Director at WKK stated, “We are very proud to receive this most distinguished award. WKK will continue to strive for excellence in everything that we do and to continue to be the pioneer in leading the way for the electronics industry.”

The company was a natural extension of the business founded by Mr. Wong Wha San, who in 1962, set up a PCB factory. When the business of the factory grew rapidly in 1975, WKK was created as the trading and distribution arm.

In 1989, WKK spun off from Wong's Industrial (Holdings) Ltd. and itself became a public listed company. To ensure easy communication and good relationships with its internationally-based business partners and customers, today WKK has offices in The United States, The People's Republic of China, Taiwan, Japan, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and Vietnam. Having evolved from a distributor into a broad-based global company, WKK is poised to continue its growth worldwide.

Premiering in 2005, the Global Technology Awards program is an annual celebration of product excellence in electronics surface mount assembly. Premier products based on the finest examples of creative advancement in technology are chosen by a distinguished panel of industry experts. For more information, visit www.globalsmt.net/awards.
