To wrap up this round of distributor introductions, I would like to welcome the following new Pololu distributors in Asia:

NTREX, Inc. – Devicemart is an online electronics store in Incheon, South Korea, with a huge selection of components, prototyping equipment, robotics kits, 3D printers, PC components, and industrial supplies. We are excited to see that their Pololu category now lists hundreds of our parts. Devicemart is now our fourth Korean distributor.


Suzaku Lab, Ltd. is an online store based in Nara, Japan, specializing in robotics parts. Joining two other Japanese distributors, Suzaku is carrying an extensive selection of Pololu motion control boards, including the Jrk, Simple Motor Controller, and TReX lines as well as most of our stepper and DC motor driver breakout boards.


Coprime Pte Ltd, an electronics shop in Singapore, is now carrying Pololu products. We have not visited, but from the Facebook pictures of their storefront, it seems like Pololu parts are being displayed alongside an exciting array of other hobby electronics boards and parts. Coprime is our fourth Singaporean distributor and our second (!) located in Sim Lim Tower.


Explore Labs is an open-source electronics company in Jodhpur, India that has been writing tutorials and selling and designing boards since around 2011 (they are growing and recently rebuilt their website, so some old content is unavailable). They publish their hardware designs on GitHub and sell them on their site along with Arduino, Raspberry Pi, the Intel Edison, kits from 3D Robotics, and now Pololu parts.


Tanna Educational Services, another new Indian distributor in Rajkot, Gujarat, offers training services on topics including embedded development and also sells microcontroller-related boards, kits, and components on their website. Their Pololu category contains various regulators and motor drivers, several sensors, the Wixel, our USB AVR Programmer, and more. Tanna and Explore Labs bring us to a total of five Indian distributors.

We are excited to welcome several new distributors that have joined Pololu over the past few months!

To start with, we have gained two new distributors in the United States. We have been following Adafruit Industries (New York, NY) for a long time – I remember receiving a SpokePOV kit as a birthday present back in 2007 – so we are particularly excited that they will now be selling some of our products. They are starting with the Zumo, which they featured in a recent new product video. We will also be distributing some of their products, such as the Adafruit Data Logging Shield for Arduino. Is there anything from Adafruit that you would like to see at Pololu? Please let us know in the comment section.

Anibit Technology (Cary, NC) is another new US distributor, founded in 2013 by engineer Jon Wolfe, who is marketing his own designs along with parts from Pololu and Adafruit. We are looking forward to seeing what else he will create!

Next, MiniRobot (Azcapotzalco, Mexico City, Mexico), joins a number of other Mexican distributors. They carry a large selection of parts, including many Pololu items, as well as Arduinos, components, and prototyping supplies.

Continuing south, we have a new distributor in Viña del Mar, Chile: Zambeca. In addition to carrying a number of Arduino, Lilypad, and robotics-related products, they have been posting some interesting-looking project videos on their blog (in Spanish). We have one other distributor in Chile, MCI Ltd – Olimex Chile, who has been with us since 2009.

We now have a distributor in China, ALSRobotBase, located in Harbin, Heilongjiang province. They have a whole “Pololu” category and are also offering to help customers in China with special orders.

Finally, Pimoroni in Sheffield, United Kingdom, is a new distributor specializing in accessories for the Raspberry Pi. They join a number of other UK distributors.
