  • Epidemic exposes the fragility of our supply chain - Steve Rawlins CEO Anglia Components Ltd.

    COVID-19 has affected our industry less than some, but nevertheless there has been serious disruption to the supply chain. Although overall the picture has improved since the start of the outbreak, Chinese manufacturing still isn’t back to full strength. It is already very apparent, though that Coronavirus has pitilessly exposed the fragility of the supply chain in our industry.

  • Avoid the passive obsolescence trap by David Pearson Technical Director Anglia Components

    It is an inescapable reality that the industrial (distribution) market for chip passives represents a very small proportion of global consumption of these components. Most go into consumer electronic products that are manufactured in massive volumes. With this in mind, it makes sense for UK distribution customers to specify the chip passive sizes that are most widely used – even if that means going for a smaller device than they need or would ideally like.

  • Redefining High Service Distribution in today’s competitive electronic industry

  • Achieving supply chain certainty in uncertain times

    In today’s unsettled market, it’s a good feeling to be able to walk out of your office and see the components required to build next week’s or next month’s production sitting there on the shelf. Yet the CFO might take a less positive view. Inventory ties up working capital that might be better employed elsewhere in the business. What if requirements change and orders get pushed back or even cancelled, are you stuck with the inventory? Yet if you see a sudden spike in demand you’ll run out of inventory anyway. Who monitors that inventory as it is used, and takes care that it is replenished?

  • Five steps for managing obsolescence - By Claire Stevenson, Quality Manager, Anglia Components

    In the light of the looming RoHS 3 deadline, it is extremely opportune to think about obsolescence. Although there is always a regular churn of parts being withdrawn because the demand dries up (or anticipated customer interest doesn’t materialise) sometimes there is a bigger picture. Directives like RoHS 3 result in what might be termed an obsolescence event: a whole slew of devices becoming obsolete at once. Regulatory issues aren’t the only cause for these events though – sometimes other industry changes lead to whole classes of device becoming unavailable. How can prudent purchasing teams avoid being caught out?
