What We Do

Our trading team receives timely communications from trusted industry resources on the latest product updates. Your dedicated Smith sales representative will notify you in the event of any product changes to help keep your lines running smoothly.

Stay ahead of EOL situations

Unexpected end-of-life situations have the potential to halt supply chains. With proper lifecycle management of electronic components, lines can run seamlessly from start to finish. Our nearly four decades of industry experience put us in the best position to serve your unique needs.

Ensure a steady stock for the future

Proactively plan for unexpected demand increases with readily available stock. Our decades-long supplier connections help us offer you access to even the hardest-to-source components.

Manage your stock with a flexible range of warehousing options

From secure hubbing to just-in-time delivery, Smith’s global warehouses have you covered. Your product can be stored long-term at our warehouses and shipped out per a set schedule or immediately shipped to meet demand.

Reduce your inventory holding costs

We offer flexible ownership options to keep your supply chain active. Backed by our substantial financial resources, Smith is able to help you meet your bottom line through customized inventory programs.

Source obsolete and hard-to-find parts

If the electronic components you need go obsolete, engineering changes can be costly. Smith specializes in sourcing hard-to-find electronic components at all stages of the product lifecycle.

Component lifecycles don’t have to define your choices. It can be a strain when a component goes end-of-life, especially if you have warranty and repair agreements or production relying on it. But knowing about lifecycle changes before they’re hitting you head-on can make the difference between your operations moving without interruption or being dead in the water.
