Selectronix, with headquarters in Aldermaston in the UK, is a specialist
European distributor and manufacturer of
high speed communications assemblies and related components. Formed in 1979 as
a specialist UK distributor of interconnection products, together with a range
of electromechanical devices, Selectronix has since developed along two avenues:
as a distributor of connector products, relays, switches and sensors, and as a
manufacturer, in our own modern assembly plant, of
SCSI cables for
computer related applications where technical expertise is required; and as a
supplier of Fibre Channel, Infiniband, Gigabit Ethernet solutions for this
dynamic new market.
