Our History

You can count on it - Long-term reliable SUPPORT!

Did you know that since its founding in 1980, GLYN has been a focused specialist?

In the early 1980s, distribution channels and sources of information for Japanese semiconductors were not clearly defined. Our company founder, Glyn Jones, recognized this and initially specialized in Japanese semiconductors. The business model was then expanded and continuously developed.
