WILMINGTON, MA — Heilind Electronics, a premier distributor of electronic components worldwide, was recognized with the 2019 Channel Partner of the Year award by Sensata Technologies, a global leader in the development and manufacture of sensors and controls.

The award was presented to Heilind Electronics by Sensata’s Vice President of Industrial and Commercial Excellence, Matthew Lesniak, at the 2019 Sensata Sales Summit held earlier this month in Attleboro, Massachusetts. Facilitating the reception was Sensata’s Channel Director, David Foster.

“Heilind delivered the highest percentage of new revenue and customers within the Sensata industrial channel,” said Foster. “Heilind will continue to grow with Sensata as we expand our portfolio of leading-edge sensing solutions.”
