The company also provides of flat panel display and supporting technology products and services. It distributes a range of semiconductors (active components), including transistors, diodes, memory devices, microprocessors, micro controllers, other integrated circuits, active matrix displays and various board-level products, as well as passive products, consisting primarily of capacitors, resistors and electromechanical devices including power supplies, relays, switches, connectors and printer heads. These products are used in the assembly of a diverse and growing range of electronic products, including: telecommunications equipment, computers and office equipment, medical devices and instrumentation, industrial equipment and controls, military/aerospace systems, voting and gaming machines, automotive electronics, and home entertainment and other consumer electronics. The company distributes approximately 45,000 products from approximately 100 vendors to a base of 5,500 customers through a direct sales force. It provides various value-added services, including automated inventory management services; integration, turnkey design and development, project management, and extended and post-sale support services for various custom components with flat panel displays; assembly of stock items for customers into pre-packaged kits; and programming and testing of power supplies and crystal oscillators. Products The company distributes approximately 45,000 stock items. Its products fall into four categories: semiconductors (Semi), flat panel displays (FPD), passive components (Passive) and electromechanical devices (EMCH). Semiconductors are active products consisting of such items as integrated circuits, microprocessors, transistors, diodes, dynamic random access memory (RAM), static RAMs, and video RAMs which respond to or activate upon receipt of electronic current. FPDs incorporate such items as flat panels, touch screens and controllers, which are commonly used in personal computers, televisions, automated teller machines, voting and gaming machines, and video monitors, and are rapidly replacing standard cathode ray tubes in various applications, including medical, industrial and commercial equipment, as well as in the specific types of products listed above. Passive components consist primarily of capacitors and resistors. EMCH consists of such products as power supplies, relays and printerheads. Both passive and EMCH products are designed to facilitate completion of electric functions. Value-Added Services The company also provides value-added services which are intended to attract new customers, and to maintain and increase sales to existing customers. Value-added services include: Automated Inventory Management Services: The company offers comprehensive, solutions that manage its customers’ inventory reordering, stocking and administration functions. Kitting: Kitting consists of assembling to a customer’s specifications two or 45,000 stock items into pre-packaged kits ready for use in the customer’s assembly line. Kitting services allow the company to provide a partial or complete fill of a customer’s order and enable the customer to manage its inventory. Programming: The company offers both field programming instruments, as well as volume production capabilities performed in-house. All standard surface mount and dip packages are available. The company provides custom oscillators at a user-specified frequency. In addition, the company offers configurable modular power supplies featuring the flexibility of 10 wide-range outputs. FPD Integration: The company’s FPD sales specialists and technical engineers work directly with its customers to design, develop, configure, test and deliver solutions to meet specific FPD requirements for both business and consumer applications. Suppliers The company has distribution agreements with manufacturers, including AU Optronics, Sharp Electronics Corp; NEC; Kemet Electronics Corporation; Samsung Semiconductor, Inc.; 3M Touch Systems, Inc.; Vishay Intertechnology, Inc.; Vitesse Semiconductor Corporation; Lambda; Cosel; and Epson Electronics America, Inc. Customers The company’s core customer base consists primarily of small and medium-sized manufacturers that produce electronic equipment used in a variety of industries. Competition The company competes with distributors, such as Arrow Electronics, Inc.; Avnet, Inc.; and Nu Horizons Electronic Corporation. History Jaco Electronics, Inc. was founded in 1961.
