TAITRON "The Discrete Superstore"

We are a national distributor of brand name electronic components and supplier of original designed and manufactured ("ODM") electronic components ("ODM Components"), with our product offerings ranging from discrete semiconductors through small electronic devices. We also offer value-added engineering and turn-key services, focusing on providing contract electronic manufacturers ("CEM"s) and original equipment manufacturers ("OEM"s) with ODM services for their multi-year turn-key projects. We maintain two divisions in Taiwan and China.

We have developed a reputation for stocking a large selection of inventories and having an in-depth knowledge of the products in our markets. Our "superstore" strategy consists of carrying a large quantity and variety of components in inventory to meet the rapid delivery requirements of our customers. To differentiate from other distributors, we also offer ODM Components, which are manufactured electronic components based on our own engineering specifications under the private label brand "TCI" through manufacturing partners. Our Taiwan and China locations provide support for inventory sourcing, purchases and coordinating the manufacture of our ODM Components and ODM Products. Our China location also serves as the engineering center responsible for making component datasheets and test specifications, arranging pre-production and mass production at our manufacturer partners, preparing samples, monitoring the quality of shipments, performing failure analysis reports, and designing circuits with partners for ODM projects.
