In 2000, Bussmann and Littelfuse announced that they would begin utilizing a limited distribution strategy centered solely around global distribution partners and would eliminate its remaining 2,500 electronic and automotive distributors.
OptiFuse saw the opportunity to service these disenfranchised distributors by creating a catalog of fuse and fuse holder products. In addition to their own products, OptiFuse has created strategic alliances with other manufacturers of specialized over-current and over-voltage products.
Together, these products represent over 7,000 individual SKUs and are sold exclusively through OptiFuse distributors. All of OptiFuse products are RoHS compliant and/or lead-free. Many of the parts are listed or recognized by UL and/or other international safety organizations.
