Unique Qualifications

The owner is a former NASA design engineer with over 18 years OEM sales experience.


We have value added capabilities, which allow us to design and manufacture custom products or modify existing products to fit the needs of our customers.


Our marketing strategy includes our ability to sell products through direct marketing, telephone calls, targeted mailings and sale visits.  We aggressively advertise on the internet via our eCommerce web site, Google, GlobalSpec and Thomas Register.  To improve the visibility of our web site, we retain the services of web site consultants for “search engine optimization,” and plan to maintain a presence on professional and personal social networking sites such as, Facebook, Linkedin, Twitter, and YouTube. In addition, we exhibit and attend trade shows for ourselves and on behalf of the suppliers we represent.



“We provide product solutions for design challenges.”


Our philosophy is a major part of what sets us apart from other suppliers.  Our sales staff contacts our customer’s engineers directly in order to provide expert evaluation of their component needs and to recommend an appropriate product solution.
