ES Components has been distributing bare die, wafer and package devices since 1981, when we began as a joint venture with Elmo Semiconductor of Burbank, California to service East Coast customers.
We helped revolutionize the microelectronics industry as one of the first distributors to implement cutting edge inventory management methodologies such as Bonded Inventories, JIT and Vendor Managed inventory programs. In 1986, we ended our relationship with Elmo Semiconductor to become an independent distributor, expanding our product offering to include SMT and passive components from franchised and non-franchised manufacturers.
For over thirty years we’ve been a franchised Vishay distributor, starting with the Ohmtek Division in 1985. Ten years later we were awarded the full line Vishay franchise to market all Vishay products. We expanded our product offering even further in 2001 when we contracted with Kimball Microelectronics, formerly Elmo Semiconductor, to market their extensive inventory of obsolete, hard-to-find, and DMSMS products.
Today, as an ITAR-registered and ISO 9001:2008 & AS9120:2009 certified distributor, we continue to develop innovative technologies, strategic partnerships, and
revolutionary inventory management methods to continually increase efficiency, reduce costs, and help streamline our customers’ production processes.
