SAN JOSE, Calif. and TOKYO, Dec. 6, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) today announced that it has signed a catalog distribution agreement with CoreStaff Co., Ltd., one of Japan's largest online shopping sites for semiconductors, electronic parts, and module products. The agreement is effective as of November 3, 2017.
This agreement will accelerate Maxim's broad market strategy by providing a wide range of Japanese customers with highly integrated and cutting-edge analog semiconductors.

"This catalog distributor agreement with Maxim is a great step for us," said Mr. Masaki Tozawa, President of CoreStaff. "Our mission is to give more Japanese customers easy access to Maxim products, and in the near future, to establish a mechanism with which Japanese customers can purchase just one Maxim product at any given time."
