Fort Worth-based TTI buys Chinese electronics firm

Fort Worth-based TTI, Inc. a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, said it has acquired the assets of HuaTong Electronic Co., an electronic components distributor in Dongguan Shilong, founded in 1994.

Huatong employs about 60 associates at locations in Dongguan Shilong, Hong Kong, Suzhou, Shenzhen and Beijing. The company is a specialty distribution partner to many Chinese, domestic cellular phone manufacturers, a market segment not previously served by TTI in China.

Gene Conahan, president TTI Europe and Asia, said, “Bringing Huatong Electronics into the TTI family of companies establishes our presence in the fast growing Chinese cellular phone market segment and is further evidence of TTI’s commitment to growth in the region.”

Man Deng, Huatong’s general manager, will report directly to Anthony Chan, TTI Asia senior vice president and general manager.

“When my team and I consider the expansion of the company, second only to ensuring a culture of superior customer service, is our commitment to being specialists in the products and services we offer,” said Paul Andrews, TTI founder and chief executive officer, in a statement. “Huatong’s proven ability to deliver both of these to the benefit of their customers makes the joining of our companies a good fit.”

Fort Worth-Arlington area home prices rise again in June

Fort Worth-Arlington home prices rose 8.5 percent in June from a year ago, according to the latest monthly home price report from CoreLogic.

On a month-over-month basis, home prices increased 0.9 percent in June from May.

CoreLogic, a leading property information and analytic provider, said home price nationwide increased 7.5 percent in June, representing 28 months of consecutive year-over-year increases.

On a month-over-month basis, home prices nationwide rose 1 percent in June from May. CoreLogic said it is anticipating home prices rising 0.7 percent from June to July and another 5.7 percent from June to June of next year.

"Home prices are continuing to rise fueled by ongoing tight supply, low rates and aggressive investor buying on the East and West Coasts," said Anand Nallathambi, president and CEO of CoreLogic. "The expected surge in the number of homes for sale has not materialized to date as many homeowners are staying put and waiting for better economic times and higher prices in the future."
