Do These Issues Sound Familiar?

Your company is dependent on its machinery to make money, but you can’t possibly keep up with the pace of technological innovation. If your older machinery is no longer supported by the manufacturer, then you are now in a precarious position. You certainly don’t want to sink your investment and buy new equipment (that will itself become outdated quickly), but you also don’t want to be constantly dealing with tracking down old parts and fighting with dealers. If you are struggling with the most common issues that plague our clients, then we are here to help.

Sales of Electronic Components

Sales of Electronic Components Direct vs Distribution

Not long ago, it was commonplace for most OEMs and other clients of ours to go to a local distributor and pay higher premiums to get access to the parts they needed. The local distribution company would help them determine exactly the products they needed (this is an extremely complex industry, after all). Going direct was relatively unheard of except for massive bulk orders. And even then, it was rare.

The advent of the internet has changed all of that.

Direct Components was a pioneer on the forefront of the industry, helping companies in all industries gain access to the components they needed directly.

Why Buy Direct Online? Why is the Online Electronic Components Market Growing So Rapidly?

For companies that need to purchase simple components quickly, know what they need, and need them immediately, there is no better way to buy than via an online distributor. The online electronic components distribution market is growing at a rapid rate as more and more businesses realize the benefits. Going direct comes with major benefits:

  • You Save Money: Buying direct from an online distributor cuts out the “middleman” and saves companies money. Instead of having to pay distributors, we utilize our network to consistently stock millions of components that we ship to you directly.
  • 24/7 – 365 Access: Rather than working on another company’s hours or having to order all of your parts through them, you can gain unfettered access to one of the world’s largest networks at any time you want. You can browse as much as you like, receive quotes, and place orders even outside of business hours without issue.
  • You Are in Total Control: Our directory puts you in total control of the buying process. You can purchase as little or as much as you’d like and choose from any of our 50 million products in stock.

For all of the benefits that come with buying direct online from a distributor, takes those benefits even further. Over the last two decades, we have cemented ourselves as the leading electronic components distribution company online for a few main reasons.

They take years of trust and performance to build. That’s the one advantage that we take the most pride in.
  • Fast Quotes and Even Faster Shipping: If you’re struggling to meet lead times, then your entire business will be compromised.

As soon as you request an order, our team will begin digging to come up with a fair and fast quote for your products. We guarantee we will find what you are looking for at a price you can afford. From there, our rapid distribution network puts the part in your hands as quickly as possible.
  • Save Time Dealing with Distributors and Directories: If you are still on the phone with a local distributor or wasting time manually searching complex directories, then you are leaving time and money on the table.
