About AY Electronics

A.Y. Electronics brings over 40 years of experience in supply chain management, high-tech manufacturing,and top -tier engineering, as it guides its customers from NPI all the way through to mass production.

History

A.Y. Electronics was founded by Arik Rod in 1980. Mr. Rod strongly believed in the future of electronics. He foresaw that electronic products were going to become an integral part of daily life in every home and office. His vision was to create a company that specialized in integrating expertise regarding mechanical and electrical components with the concept of providing the lowest "total cost" solution, in order to increase the affordability of electronic products for all.

From 1990 onwards A.Y. Electronics has been developing global partnerships with authorized distributors of several tier-one quality component manufacturers and distributers. A.Y. Electronics now has sourcing offices in Germany, Korea, Taiwan, China, and Hong Kong and our procurement team operates 24/7 to source and supply our customers with the most up-to-date electronic components available, through our partnerships with distributors such as Samsung.

In 2000 A.Y. Electronics identified a growing trend of outsourcing within the high-tech industry and, in 2004, acquired Partner Manufacturing to ensure that we continue to excel in supplying the electronics industry with a complete range of supply chain management needs.
