CHANHASSEN, MN, August 25, 2022 – Electrical components distributor Waytek, Inc. has received the 2021 Blast-Off Growth Award from CIT Relay & Switch. The award recognizes Waytek for being among the fastest-growing distributors of Picker Components products offered by CIT, for two years running.

“We are excited to receive our second growth award from CIT Relay & Switch,” said Kevin Pung, Chief Customer Officer, Waytek. “Waytek employees deserve full credit for this accomplishment. Their dedication enables Waytek to provide the exceptional customer service we are known for and the high-quality solutions that we source through key suppliers like CIT.”

Waytek began distributing Picker Components in 2013; CIT Relay & Switch acquired the Picker Components brand in 2020. Waytek was the first distributor to bring the new Picker Components PC775 Power Relay Series to the marketplace. Subsequently, Waytek received CIT Relay & Switch’s 2020 Distributor Growth Award for achieving the highest revenue growth rate among Picker Components distributors. In 2021, Waytek again was a top performer in total sales of Picker Components products.

“Our relationship with CIT Relay & Switch continues to flourish,” said Rob Iversrud, Category and Product Manager at Waytek. “CIT’s line of high-quality Picker Components relays, their willingness to partner with us on innovative products, and their competitive lead times under challenging market conditions have made it easy for us to succeed as a distribution growth leader.
