Pointe Claire, Quebec – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, with corporate headquarters in Montreal, Quebec, has one of its distribution facilities in the United States, located near Memphis, Tennessee.
Future Electronics' Memphis Area Distribution Center boasts the most advanced state-of-the-art technology in the industry, and is a source of pride for the company and its president, Robert Miller.
Another reason for the Future Electronics team to be proud is its partnership with Hiring Our Heroes, a program of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation that assists veteran job seekers, active duty military members, guard and reserve members and military spouses.
The Hiring Our Heroes program is a nationwide initiative to help veterans, transitioning service members, and military spouses find meaningful employment opportunities. Life after military service presents challenges for men and women who have dedicated their lives to protecting their country.
Future Electronics has contributed to restoring hope to these heroes. One example is the hiring of Brandon Jackson to the company's IT team in May 2014. Brandon joined the military when he was 17 and started basic training in July 2009, immediately after high school graduation. In 2010, Brandon was deployed to Kuwait for 9 months. When Brandon returned home from Kuwait, he was transferred to the 168th MP Battalion in Dyersburg, TN.
