America II exhibiting at Electronics Sourcing Live

Leading independent distributor on-hand to discuss its Inventory Solutions programme

America II Europe Ltd., part of America II Electronics, Inc., one of the world’s largest independent distributors of semiconductors and passive components, announces that it will be exhibiting at the Electronics Sourcing Live event at the Madejski Stadium & Conference Centre, Reading, England, on 24th May.

ES LIVE offers an environment where component manufacturers, distributors, manufacturing equipment suppliers and contract electronics manufacturers can discuss their products and services with electronics purchasing professionals. The show represents a good opportunity to meet the America II team and learn more about their differentiated distribution model.

America II’s Inventory Solutions programme is unique in the market. America II has one of the industry’s largest inventories, worth nearly $1 billion. No other independent distributor offers OEMs in-house third party testing facilities and a commitment to quality backed by a 10 year guarantee on all parts sold.

With a variety of local offices all over the world, and a 200-strong sales force available to support its customers, America II will ship quality-guaranteed components, (all handled to ISO9002 and ANSI/ESD S20.20 standards), to any location within three days as standard. For these reasons, America II is a trusted distribution partner to some of the biggest companies in the world.

“We face an interesting time in the market right now: we’re seeing continuing economic turbulence leading to fluctuations in long-established supply chains,” commented Andy Groom, Managing Director of America II Europe. “What’s more the number of bogus parts in circulation has quadrupled since 2009 according to HIS iSuppli. It is estimated by some that as much as 20% of global electronics inventories are counterfeits.

“We’re intensely proud of our quality control processes. Our customers value our industry-leading quality control using a third-party test house, which wholly secures the integrity of our supply chain.”

Andy and other members of America II Europe’s staff will be available at stand ES03, and will be happy to talk through America II’s offering.
