YAPHANK, NY--(Marketwired - Aug 1, 2013) - 1-Source Electronic Components announced on its blog (http://www.1sourcecomponents.com/blog/?p=3592) that it has completed its 12th year in business and is celebrating its 12th anniversary with 12 months of customer appreciation. To celebrate, 1-Source will be conducting different promotions (to be announced through their blog and mailing list) during each of the next 12 months, including giving away free iPads, and offering free shipping and discounts on various types of products such as connectors, LCD displays, and LED light bulbs.
Back in July of 2001, when the Lodato brothers, Richard and Robert, opened their first electronic components distributing office and warehouse in Port Jefferson Station, New York, the electronics manufacturing industry was very different from today. Many of the electronic devices that we take for granted now were only vague concepts in the imaginations of some very talented innovators. And the components needed to build these devices, such as transistors, resistors, and capacitors, were sourced and distributed using old fashioned methods which were slow and tedious.
The brothers combined their talents to develop a complete electronic component sourcing and distribution system utilizing a customer friendly website, proprietary worldwide part-search software, and a team of customer service professionals to assist and speed up the process. And so 1-Source Electronic Components was founded in July of 2001 with the mission of using modern technology to make the process of finding and sourcing hard-to-find electronic components as easy as possible for the buyers and engineers of electronics manufacturers.
"The job of a component buyer typically involves going to many different sources to find everything they need. We wanted to simplify their job by providing a central source and single point of contact for all hard-to-find as well as franchised electronic components, connectors, cables, hardware, tools, just about anything used by electronic manufacturers to make their products," said Robert Lodato, the company's Vice President.
"I know 1-Source Components from 11 years of support for hard to find parts. From past experience, we recognize 1-Source is a reliable source. Thanks for your support in our success. I believe the vendor is also important in our success. I wish you good success in the future." - SLN Technologies
