We get asked this question alot.
The fact of the matter is that quite a few of the largest electronic companies in the world buy their parts from China and other parts of Asia.
At Summit Electronics, whenever we can, the parts we offer our clients are purchased from American companies. The difficulty we encounter is that many of the hard to procure parts our clients require are only available through a limited number of suppliers.
We will scour the world to make sure the needs of our clients are met. We do insist that the parts we purchase are not counterfeited or less than quality workmanship. Summit Electronics purchases parts from certain Asian distributors that we have vetted so that the parts we supply to our clients are the highest possible quality while keeping the costs to a minimum.
