Taitron Components Incorporated operates as a distributor of brand name electronic components and supplier of original designed and manufactured (ODM) electronic components with the company’s product offerings ranging from discrete semiconductors through small electronic devices. The company also offers value-added engineering design and turn-key services, focusing on providing contract electronic manufacturers (CEMs) and original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with ODM services for their multi-year turn-key projects (ODM Products and/or ODM Projects). As of December 31, 2013, the company’s inventory consisted of approximately 12,000 different products manufactured by approximately 100 different suppliers. In 2013, the company offered approximately 33 different ODM Products that are manufactured to specifications developed as a result of its ODM Project services. The company’s Taiwan and Northern China locations provide support for inventory sourcing, purchases and coordinating the manufacture of its ODM Components and ODM Products. The company’s Northern China location also serves as the engineering center responsible for making component datasheets and test specifications, arranging pre-production and mass production at its manufacturer partners, preparing samples, monitoring the quality of shipments, performing failure analysis reports, and designing circuits with partners for its ODM Projects. Products Electronic Components – Discrete The company markets various discrete semiconductors, including rectifiers (or power diodes), diodes, transistors, optoelectronic devices and passive components, to other electronic distributors, CEMs, and OEMs, who incorporate them in their products. Rectifiers: Rectifiers generally are utilized in power supply and other high power applications to convert alternating current to direct current. The company sells various rectifiers, including silicon rectifiers, fast efficient rectifiers, Schottky rectifiers, glass passivated rectifiers, glass passivated rectifiers, silicon bridge rectifiers, fast recovery, glass passivated bridge rectifiers and controlled avalanche bridge rectifiers. Diodes: Diodes are two-lead semiconductors that only allow electric current to flow in one direction. They are used in various electronic applications, including signal processing and direction of current. Diodes sold by the company include switching diodes, varistors, germanium diodes and zener diodes. Transistors: Transistors are used in, among other applications, the processing or amplification of electric current and electronic signals, including data, television, sound and power. The company sells many types of transistors, including small signal transistors, power transistors and power MOSFETS. Optoelectronic Devices: Optoelectronic devices are solid state products, which provide light displays (such as LEDs), optical links and fiber-optic signal coupling. Applications vary from digital displays on consumer video equipment to fiber optic transmission of computer signals to pattern sensing for regulation, such as those found in automobile cruise controls. Optoelectronic devices generally are not classified as discrete semiconductors or integrated circuits, although they incorporate semiconductor materials. Passive Components: Passive components are a type of electronic component manufactured with non-semiconductor materials. Passive components, such as resistors, capacitors and inductors are used in electronic circuitry but they do not provide amplification. Passive components are basic electronic components found in all electronic products. The products distributed by the company are mature products that are used in a range of commercial and industrial products and industries. The company’s distribution of electronic components originates from its 50,000 square-foot facility located in Valencia, California. ODM Products ODM Products are custom made and are marketed in specific industries, such as wild animal feeders, timers for DC motor, public street light controllers, battery testers, universal remote control devices and battery chargers. The company’s distribution of ODM Products originates from its 50,000 square-foot facility located in Valencia, California. Customers The company markets its products to distributors, CEMs and OEMs, and its ODM services to CEMs and OEMs. The company offers customers inventory support, which includes carrying inventory for their specific needs and providing free samples of its products. The company also offers customers a limited range of value-added services, such as lead cutting and bending for specific applications, monitoring and product source tracing. Strategy The company’s ‘superstore’ strategy consists of carrying a large quantity and various components in inventory to meet the delivery requirements of its customers. The primary aspects of its ‘superstore’ strategy include reliable one stop shopping: large inventory; private brand and custom made parts; support small distributors, CEMs, and OEMs; Web order entry and customer drop shipment; master distributor; preferred distributors; and vendor managed inventory. Sales and Marketing Channels The company has sales channels into Central America through its majority-owned subsidiary in Mexico City, Mexico. Suppliers In 2013, the company purchased components from approximately 40 different suppliers, including Samsung Electro-Mechanics Co.; Everlight Electronics Co, Ltd.; Vishay Americas Inc.; and Zowie Technology Corporation. History Taitron Components Incorporated was incorporated in California, and was originally founded in 1989.
