For our business customers that need to purchase parts from us in large quantities on either a one-time or recurring basis we offer firm quoted prices and delivery dates as part of our specialized quotation process. You can obtain significant savings for high volume or recurring orders by requesting a quotation. We can schedule delivery dates up to 18 months out and guarantee that the parts will be delivered on time.
For business customers we welcome you to apply for Net 30 day credit terms with us. Trade accounts are generally set up at the same time as you first request a quote on a part from us, and are useful when orders are on a recurring basis or of a certain minimum amount. We need to see evidence that you are a legitimate, established business that has been in existence for at least 5 years before extending credit. Contact us for more information.

Custom Assemblies & Specialty Components
We can manufacture completed adapter assemblies with your customer-specified components. We can work with either customer-supplied (consignment) parts, or with components sourced from within our supply network. If there is a part that you are having difficulty finding, there is a good chance we can find it. There is no minimum order quantity, but for larger quantities we use automated assembly methods. The first step is requesting a quotation. Contact us today.
One of our core business lines is the design and manufacture of custom electronic components for customers in a variety of industries, including defense and aerospace. In order for us to provide a quotation on your requirements, we will need a schematic and bill of materials. It is usually a several step process where we do the initial layout in printed circuit board design software, and then provide a firm price quote and lead time.
