SMT provides inventory management programs for your excess and obsolete components customized to meet the specific financial needs and future product requirements of your company. These component management programs are designed specifically to convert excess inventory from an accounting liability to a cash asset on your company’s bottom line. Consignment of your excess components with SMT will provide the highest return on your inventory investment.

Our programs are easily implemented and can have additional material added anytime. With consignment at SMT you will receive:

  • On-site storage of your complete component inventories in our ESD safe and humidity controlled secure warehouse environment
  • Global visibility of your inventory to a worldwide audience of OEM & CEM component buyers, as well as the entire electronic component broker and distributor community
  • Aggressive marketing of your commodity products by our global sales teams
  • Secure, safe packaging and fast shipments of your products from SMT
  • Real time visibility of your consigned inventory and sales activity through our secure Web Portal
  • Fast payment at the beginning of each month for all previous months’ sales
  • Automatic monthly reports detailing all previous month’s sales activity as well as remaining inventory on consignment
  • Full on-site audit privileges of your material and related sales documentation
  • The assurance that you are partnering with one of the most ethical and virtuous companies in the independent supply sector

If an up-front and instant buyout of your excess inventory is your first option, SMT has the market experience along with a proprietary component pricing database to quickly and thoroughly evaluate the fair market value of your excess material. Our financial strength allows us to pay on the spot and our logistics coordinators will arrange for immediate pickup at your facility. SMT also offers monthly and yearly safe storage of customer’s electronic components, sub-assemblies, and finished goods. This storage service can range from electronic component, raw materials, skidded sub assemblies or crated customer finished products. We receive product on behalf of our customers and ship products out in customer specific shipment quantities and on customer specific ship dates. As an additional service option, an online inventory of your products stored in our warehouses along with shipping and receiving history can be accessed through SMT’s Secure Asset Portal.
