Mouser Electronics was founded in El Cajon, California by Jerry Mouser in 1964.[14]

In 1986, his company relocated to its corporate headquarters to Mansfield, Texas, and expanded into a new facility.[15] 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.[16]

In 2008, the company opened an international office in Shanghai,[17] and continued to expand globally opening customer service and technical support branches worldwide, reaching a total of 27 total offices[18] in 2019. Branch locations include Brazil,[19] Canada,[20] Mexico, Hong Kong, Shanghai, India,[21] Japan,[22] Korea, Malaysia,[23] Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand, Vietnam,[24] Israel, Germany,[25] United Kingdom,[25] France, Italy,[26] Netherlands,[27] Spain, Sweden, Poland and Czech Republic.[28]

In 2013, Mouser cosponsored the SAE Counterfeit parts Avoidance Symposium in Canada. In 2018, Mouser became the first electronic component distributor to receive accreditation for AC7403 from the Counterfeit Avoidance Accreditation Program (CAAP). Through the accreditation to AC7403, Mouser demonstrates compliance with the AS6496 Aerospace Standard.[29]

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 and from connector manufacturer Harting in 2013 for "New Customer Growth" and "New Product Growth". Mouser was named Molex “eCatalog Distributor of the Year” globally and in the Americas, Europe and Asia in 2020.[30]
