Our Business - What we do
Through a long and successful trading history we have established excellent business relationships with a world-wide base of manufacturers, distributors and independent suppliers. We supply electronic components with confidence through qualified sources and achieve competitive pricing even in difficult markets.
Dedicate is a well-organized professional organization that has time to meet our commitments. We represent a limited number of suppliers so we are more knowledgeable about those suppliers and their products than broad line distributors.
Our Sales Managers have technical expertise and will work with your engineering department in support of any new designs and assist getting your company to market on time with quality products.
• Prompt Responsiveness
Our team responds quickly to your requests, and gets to work immediately to provide great prices on hard to find active components or obsolete components.
We know how frustrating it is to wait. That’s why our client service includes a quick reply to your request, and a search that begins immediately.
• Guaranteed Quality
Our quality-control processes guard against counterfeits while ensuring reliability and performance.
Unless otherwise noted in writing on the invoice or any other communication made to Purchaser, Dedicate issues a 12 month warranty to Buyer that the products shall perform in the manner described in manufacturer’s datasheet as of the date of manufacture. This guarantee is limited to the replacement of the electronic component(s) or refund of the purchase price, subject to the following terms and conditions:
This Guarantee does not apply to, and expressly excludes, the failure of any electronic component caused by the Purchaser’s negligence, misuse (including misuse relating to the handling, storage, transportation, or installation of the electronic component), or use that is inconsistent with the manufacturer’s recommended use of the electronic component.
