Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 02, 2011
The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) announced today that distributor Sager Electronics has joined the associations new, authorized-only inventory search site. Sager Electronics available-to-sell inventory can now be viewed at http://www.eciaauthorized.com.
Sager Electronics is a North American distributor of electronic components with corporate offices and a 100,000 square foot warehouse located in Middleborough, MA. The company operates service centers in major North American business markets with a full complement of field sales representatives supporting accounts locally. Sagers network of proximity warehouses further supports the distributors customer requirements. Sager is a long-standing member of the ECIA and one of its predecessors, the National Electronics Distributors Association (NEDA).
According to the association, the new website is a key element of the associations fight against counterfeit parts, providing component buyers with a secure location to find authorized products. The site is exclusively for authorized distributors and only lists inventory that is genuine and backed by the manufacturers warranty, said ECIA President Robin Gray.
Customers need to be assured the parts they are procuring come from authorized suppliers, said Sager Electronics President Frank Flynn. We are very pleased to be part of ECIAauthorized.com and we fully support the ECIAs efforts to promote authorized sources. We are confident this new website will benefit buyers and specifiers everywhere.
Sagers extensive authorized product line includes interconnect, sensors, switches, relays, circuit protection, EMI, power supplies, thermal management, filters, power entry modules, magnetics, LEDs, capacitors, resistors, motors, printers and hardware. All can be found on http://www.ECIAauthorized.com.
Search results on http://www.ECIAauthorized.com are drawn from all participating distributors and displayed at random, based on search match and availability. This is a major difference from some search sites, which are influenced by advertising expenditures or sponsorships.
While inventory searches will be handled on the association Web site, sales will be completed through each distributors private site. Sager orders will be placed through http://www.sager.com. This is another benefit to users in that it eliminates the possibility of purchase data being captured and shared by unauthorized third parties.
