Where Innovation Meets Reliability

Our Story

Since our inception in 1998, Direct Components has continued to support the supply chains of OEMs, CMs, EMS companies and distributors worldwide. Our extensive global network of approved suppliers has allowed us to procure quality allocated, obsolete, and hard to find electronic parts at rock bottom prices. Our mission is to pass these savings on to our clients.

Direct Components is a broad-line stocking distributor of both active and passive components. We provide board-level parts and hardware to commercial, industrial, and defense/aerospace clients. We have access to millions of components but we specialize in integrated circuits, semiconductors, memory, microprocessors, transistors, resistors, and relays.

We carry top manufacturers such as Analog Devices, Altera, Dallas/Maxim, Linear Tech, Intel, Samsung, Cypress, Fairchild Semiconductor, Hitachi, Infineon, Vishay, Motorola, On Semiconductor, Freescale, National Semiconductor, Xilinx and Texas Instruments.

Direct achieved a huge milestone and became certified to the AS9120A Aerospace Standard for distributors in January of 2016. In accepting the registration certificate, Sunshine Hubbard (Director of Operations – North America) noted that “This is a reflection of the dedication of all of our employees to provide the highest quality of products and service. Being accredited to this globally recognized standard will create many new opportunities worldwide.

Direct Components, Inc. President/CEO, Aaron Nursey, added that, “We are extremely pleased with achieving this important milestone. Direct Components, Inc. takes commitment to quality very seriously and our AS9120A certification is further evidence of this promise to our customers and suppliers. This certification confirms to our aerospace partners that they will receive the highest quality electronics products and services every time.”

Direct Components is dedicated to customer satisfaction and we pride ourselves on the ability to not only successfully fulfill your electronic component needs, but your expectations as well. Our team is guided by our core values and our daily mission is continuous improvement in all facets of our company.

If you are facing a long lead time, find yourself with a shortage, struggling to find an obsolete part or you just want to save some money give Direct a try. We love a good challenge!
