Product Accelerator Plan (PAP)
The Product Accelerator Plan (PAP) developed by the Group is an innovative model whereby the company participates in the production costs and takes full ownership of all the development stages – engineering, production and assembly, until the final product.
This model enables the client to focus exclusively on the product’s marketing and sales without having to manage production, warehousing and logistics, inventory, human resources, etc.
The company is comprised of three divisions:
• Electronic Components and Acquisitions Division
• Supply Chain and Production Management Division.
• Engineering and Product Development Division.
Electronic Components Division
This was the company’s first division, and it has accrued extensive experience and a first-rate reputation during 40 years of activity. The company has representative offices in Germany, South Korea, Taiwan, China and Hong Kong.
The company’s buyers enjoy its excellent reputation and widespread network of licensed suppliers and distributors of global manufacturers and other companies that supply active and passive components such as processors, memory components, sensors and others at the highest level of availability and quality.
Supply Chain and Production Management Division
This operational division provides clients with comprehensive solutions, including BOM component testing, component pricing, and calculation of production costs. Sub-contractors recommended by the Group and the company’s own professional team of technicians and engineers are entirely devoted to meeting the client’s specific requirements, to the client’s complete satisfaction. The Division’s operations are transparent and professional, providing clients with a basket of production solutions starting from the electronic card and including the production of an entire product and testing its functionality prior to delivering the product to the end customers.
The Division abides by the strictest regulatory standards, including ISO 9001 and ISO 13485.
