Components Direct is now a wholly-owned member of the Avnet family. Avnet, Inc. is one of the largest distributors of electronic components and has a long history of leading the industry in innovation and customer service. These are the same values driving Components Direct’s mission to empower our suppliers and customer partners with an innovative platform for managing and buying franchised excess and obsolete inventory.
Components Direct’s focus and commitment to 100% guaranteed traceable components, and our leadership in the fight against counterfeit and grey market activity has not changed. We will continue to be an authorised excess and end-of-life distributor for industry leading suppliers such as Xilinx, IDT, Maxim Integrated and Marvell, and to offer leading tools and services that enable our partners to track and prevent product leakage into the gray market.
As a leading distributor of franchised excess and obsolete inventory, Components Direct is now a primary channel for Avnet’s excess, obsolete, and unsold factory stock. Our flexible, customer-friendly e-commerce store ensures that buyers ranging from OEMs to contract manufacturers are able to find the parts they need, quickly and with the peace of mind that comes from dealing with an authorized source. As an Avnet company, Components Direct now has access to Avnet’s global logistical facilities and will continue to maintain the highest levels of compliance with ISO and ESD certifications.
Components Direct and Avnet are proud of our shared experience and ability to stay ahead of market changes by driving improvements in the electronics components supply chain. We will continue to build on this legacy of excellence and look forward to working together to provide our customers and supplier partners an outstanding experience.
