Long Lead Time, Hard to Find, Obsolete Component & Parts Distributor


The COVID-19 pandemic sent shockwaves globally throughout the entire supply chain in 2020. It was the catalyst for one of the most significant disruptions in supply chain history for all goods — from cream cheese, toilet paper to beer cans and microchips. As the virus spread worldwide, the demand for work from home equipment and electronic gadgets to pass the time increased tenfold as manufacturers quarantined and shortened hours. This created what the Institute for Supply Management called the “perfect storm.” Outdated supply procedures, disrupted manufacturing, and labor shortages hurt the pipeline and set everything back, creating a worldwide supply chain crisis. Forecasters from the Institute for Supply Management for electronics don’t see an end in sight for supply chain shortages like microchips and electronics.

Client Testimonials

  • I have been working with Secure for a while now (about 5 years). Over those years Secure has played a critical role in keeping our programs moving. Specifically, they have provided guidance on obsolete items and offered testing to help certify parts found in the open market.

  • "Secure Components helped Donaldson procure P/N RL07S123GB14 simple $1 resistor that would have taken 39 weeks to order through Vishay or the authorized vendors we had on our AVL. Instead, Secure Components provided us with a much better solution for this one-off component."

  • "Recently, Pole/Zero faced daunting tasks of completing assemblies for customers with multiple component shortages which were unavailable for more than a year! Secure Components did everything from sourcing the exact part needed, to procuring as well as testing to authenticate and meet our counterfeit avoidance quality requirements. For example, Analog Device P/N LTC2622IMS8#PBF, was on a 90-week lead time via Digi-Key and Mouser! It took 6 weeks for Secure Components to deliver with all the documentation and test reports. We continue to turn to Secure Components whenever we face shortage or obsolete components as they provide perfect end-to-end solutions for our business."

  • I would like to thank [the] company personnel at Secure Components for their excellent support and service. Your DLA Account Manager took care of all my queries in a jiffy and still continues to exceed our company’s expectations. Secure Components provided me the most reasonable quote for some material that I needed to procure. Secure Components provided me with all of the traceability for this flange bolt that was at a work-stoppage for more than 280 days. Not only did Secure Components provide me with the traceability and pictures of this material that their Quality Control,  upon ordering one piece of the material to ensure it met our specifications and requirements, they also went as far as digging deeper into this material specifications to ensure that our engineering would grant the approval of this buy package. Vendor’s like this set the bar for our expectations on how to provide phenomenal customer service. If there is something that they cannot obtain they always politely inform me before they even proceed further with the quote, until they have spoken with me or my counter-part. When I urgently require status or information regarding a product, Secure Components provides me with the most up to date information from her vendor or shipping status and she relays this information to me within the hour. Secure Components was extremely attentive and listened to all my concerns with a great deal of patience. Secure Components also ensured that I received all the information regarding the time by which I would expect the material to be shipped. I have been, and continue to be, very thankful that Secure Components explains if they can compete with a different vendor or lower their price/lead time. Secure Components has a caring approach and, are true professionals. Please accept my gratitude towards the Secure Components team for their speedy and efficient services. I have been able to complete my buy packages within thirty minute increments thanks to their attentive and alert presence. I would especially like to commend Secure Components for their professionalism and superlative skills.
