4 Star Electronics, Inc. Ranked as Top Distributor

San Clemente, CA, July 13, 2011 - 4 Star Electronics, Inc. Ranked #10 Independent Distributor By Electronics Sourcing North America Magazine (ESNA)

Electronics Sourcing North America, a publication providing vital information about the North American electronic distribution market, has recognized 4 Star Electronics, Inc. as the #10 independent distributor in 2010.

ESNA reports that the supply chain faced challenges in 2010, as distributors struggled to keep up with demand while extended lead times and allocations from component manufacturers weighed heavily on the industry. Due to their geographic expansions and investments in quality, global sales for the top 10 independent distributors grew by $172.2 million to reach a total of $1.75 billion. 4 Star Electronics had annual sales in 2010 of over $18 million dollars, while investing heavily in equipment and technology to improve anti-counterfeit capabilities.

“Due to the economic state of the world, companies are uncertain about factory supply levels and consumer demand for their products. These uncertainties create shortages and when there are shortages there are counterfeiters looking to take advantage of desperate buyers. We are here to make sure the parts our customers receive are authentic and help them make strategic buys to avoid the pitfalls of shortages”, says Jake Wilson, COO of 4 Star Electronics, Inc.

4 Star Electronics strives to develop strong, long-term relationships with their customers, and believes that the most important factor in sustaining these relationships is investing in counterfeit detection equipment and the continued refinement of quality control processes.
