For many of our customers we have to provide traceability. If you tell us that is what is needed we can do that. Many manufacturers allow us to source directly.
With Summon Electronics, there is more flexibility.
- Negotiable pricing. If you need to get to a certain price we will do whatever it takes to help hit your target.
- No minimum order quantities. We understand that you don’t need a full reel every time. We will do our best to give you the exact quantity needed.
- Not contractual obligations to any manufacturer. We are able to contact any manufacturer or distributor to buy parts. If we have a client that has excess inventory of a part, we have nothing limiting us to offer you those parts.
- We are experts of the grey market. When dealing with grey market parts. There are a lot of questions to ask: quality? How is the part listed? Is the quantity correct? Is the vendor in question trustworthy? Let us sail through the murky waters for you.
When we receive a request for quotation from a customer, we look for this information: Part number, quantity needed, date needed, target price and project name. With that information, we first pull up the data sheet to see all the ways the part can be listed. We then check American, European, and Asian distributors. Next we scour the grey market. Lastly we reach out to our independent contacts in Asia who will scour the markets for us to help make sure any stock found there is properly vetted before offering.
