Who We Are
The Following Is A Brief History of Concord Component, Inc's Rise To Success.
The Story So Far
Concord Components, Inc. was founded in 1995 in Concord, Nebraska as a retail catalog company, supplying hard-to-find electronic components. While managing the catalog sales and developing an extensive customer base, Concord determined that there was a need for a Midwestern based wholesale distributor. The company has evolved into an Inventory Management Service (IMS) provider to some of the industry’s largest OEM’s, CEM’s and Electronics Manufacturers. Through our cultivation of these strategic relationships, combined with our experience, investment in inventory and quality control, Concord is now one of the premier Stocking Electronics Distributors in the industry.
Over the years, Concord has diversified its product range to include all board level components and all associated products as well as assemblies and finished products. As an approved supplier to top OEM’s worldwide, Concord has become an industry leader in strict quality control which includes state-of-the art counterfeit detection and elimination.
Commitment to excellence in every aspect of the supply chain process separates Concord from other suppliers. With continual improvement, including adding and updating testing capabilities as well as value added services such as tape & reeling and RFID Tagging, Concord strives to be best in breed. The entire process is designed to strictly comply with the customer’s purchase order and potentially enhance the transaction by offering complimentary services or screening. The growth of our satisfied customer base has become integral to our success and a source of pride for Concord’s employees and management. Each customer has a place in our stellar history.
