Mouser Electronics is a catalog distributor of electronic components based in Mansfield, Texas, United States.


Mouser Electronics was founded in El Cajon, California by Jerry Mouser in 1964.[1] Jerry Mouser was a physics teacher who needed components for an electronics program at his high school.

In 1983, his company relocated to its branch location in Mansfield, Texas and in 2001, expanded into a new facility on seven acres there.[2] In January 2000, Mouser became a wholly owned subsidiary of TTI, Inc. in Fort Worth, Texas. In December 2006, a majority ownership of TTI was sold to Warren Buffett controlled Berkshire Hathaway. In 2007, the company expanded its warehouse and office space by 231,800 square feet.[3]

Mouser cosponsored the SAE 2013 Counterfeit parts Avoidance Symposium in Canada.[4]

The company has been presented awards such as "Electronics Choice Industry Award for Community Activism - Social or Educational Cause" from the Electronic Components Industry Association in 2013[5] and from connector manufacturer Harting in 2013 for "New Customer Growth" and "New Product Growth",[6] and Littelfuse in 2011, for "Catalog Distributor of the Year".[7]

In early 2016, a 250,000 square foot expansion facility will be completed next to their current warehouse in Texas.[8]


The website has products from 500+ manufacturers and access to 5 million data sheets. It has a project manager with automatic re-order and Bill Of Materials (BOM) import capabilities. Users can subscribe to a Mouser newsletter. Microsites off the website teach about new technologies.[9]
