Charlotte, NC (PRWEB) July 22, 2011
In 2010, Original Component Manufacturers (OCMs) struggled to keep up with global demand for integrated circuits. As a result, Original Equipment and Contract Manufacturers (OEMs, CMs) experienced OCM imposed allocation, shortages and long lead times on critical electronic components. Independent distributors, however, were readily available to fill this gap, thus leading to record growth. Each year, Electronics Sourcing Magazine recognizes the top North American independent distributors.
With annual sales of $ 23 million, representing a 207% growth over 2009, Stealth Components, Inc. rounded out the top ten as the ninth ranking North American independent distributor.
The company attributes its success to an improved Quality Management System and a devoted, highly-trained sales team. Upgraded technology, implementation of an enterprise-wide CRM and integrated telephone systems also played a vital role in Stealths growth.
To continue its growth in 2011 and beyond, Stealth Components will continue to improve its quality standards, to include seeking ISO9001 certification. The company will continue the expansion of its Charlotte-based sales force, and will celebrate the opening of their German location later this summer.
