CPC, part of the global Premier Farnell Group, is a business-to-business distributor of electrical and related products. However, recent advertising has seen itself being promoted to end consumers, for example tabloid newspapers and special interest satellite TV.
Established in 1967, CPC has over 40 years experience serving a large and diverse customers base. In May 1995 Farnell Electronics acquired Combined Precision Components (CPC)  and in 1996 CPC became part of the Premier Farnell Group after the acquisition of Premier Industrial Corporation. CPC is currently part of the Other Distribution Division within the Premier Farnell Group.
CPC was the host of the UK’s first Raspberry Pi hack day, held in Leeds in December 2012. The 24-hour event focused on programming solely using the credit card-sized computer.
