Allan Tomlinson – Managing Director

With over 30 years’ experience in the embedded world and over 4o years in distribution of technology, Allan came from an engineering background with NCR, moving into components distribution in the era when transistors, 8 bit micro’s and EPROM were in their infancy. Some 30 years ago he saw that eventually standard components would move to board-made components in the form of Embedded technologies first introduced in the 4U chassis with ISA based back planes and plug in cards.  Allan moved to Priority Electronics (now known as Advantech Australia) and was their National Sales Manager for 10 years before forming Kontron Australia in 2003 together with Kontron AG. Allan has been dedicated to the successful sales and distribution of Kontron products throughout the APAC region for over 20 years.
