Sourcing hard to find electronic components in the open market is like navigating through a wilderness, fraught with risks like counterfeit parts, faulty or damaged components as well as companies exhibiting unethical and fraudulent business practices. To survive these challenges and remain successful, your organization must be able to navigate through these challenging times.
4 Star Electronics is both your protector and tour guide through the wild. Founded in 2001, we are a quality focused industry leader in supplying hard to find, long lead-time, end-of-life (EOL) and obsolete electronic components. Our quality assurance department and in house lab have been recognized as one of the industry leaders for our counterfeit mitigation program. The inspection process that we follow for all product is based on current industry standards and are performed in-house at our ANSI/ESD S20.20 certified lab, by IDEA-ICE-3000 certified inspectors using state of the art testing equipment. Additionally, we hold various quality system certifications, such as; AS9120A, ISO 9001:2008, and FAA-AC00-56A.
4 Star is a trusted supplier to the Defense Logistics Agency (DLA). As a member of the Qualified Suppliers List of Distributors (QSLD) since 2011, we've been providing fully traceable material to the DLA in partnership with various Original Component Manufacturers and their authorized distributors. In addition, 4 Star has recently been added to the DLA's Qualified Testing Suppliers List (QTSL), which allows us to sell fully validated and tested non-traceable material to the DLA. The QTSL is an exclusive group and an integral part of the supply chain since a large volume of semiconductor and microcircuit electronic components used by the DLA are obsolete with no traceable inventory available. 4 Star has also partnered with Applied DNA Sciences to provide in-house DNA marking for 5962 supply class components, as required by DLA regulations.
Our 30,000 square foot facility houses over $50 million dollars of ready to ship in-stock electronic components from over 2800 different manufacturers. 4 Star has developed a proprietary global part search utility that provides instant access to our entire inventory network. If the parts that you require are not in our ready-to-ship inventory, we have access to over 100 million line items from our trusted vendor network that is comprised of inventory from manufacturers, franchise distributors, OEM/CM excess inventory, independent distributors and other approved global sources.
