Atlanta, Ga. — The Electronic Components Industry Association (ECIA) has launched the first industry-owned and managed inventory search website. The site provides authorized inventory only. ECIA distributor members have the opportunity to list their inventory on www.eciaauthorized.com at no charge through July 30th, 2011. This valuable benefit is available exclusively to ECIA members.
Customers looking to avoid gray market and counterfeit product now have a site that only lists inventory that is genuine and backed by the manufacturer’s warranty. It is a key component in the association’s efforts to fight the sale of counterfeit parts, providing customers with a secure site to find authorized product. All sales are completed through the distributor’s site with no inventory offered through the association’s site.
In addition, search results are random based on search match and availability. Search results are not influenced by advertising or sponsorships.
For more information on ECIA and this new inventory search site, contact Robin B. Gray, Jr., ECIA’s president and chief executive officer.
