If you think obsolete electronic spares are worthless just because everyday the market is flooding with novel electronic items and each time several of them becoming out of date within a short span, then you must relook on obsolete parts from LWI Electronics’ point of view as the company is strongly betting on the business of giving fresh life to these parts.

"It’s not so easy. This requires high-risk appetite and future anticipation capabilities, especially if one is dealing with obsolete parts,"Says Dinesh Singh Samyal, CEO, LWI. Plus, semiconductor parts distribution being a niche area, it requires huge inventory to manage, massive investment and large floor space and key inventory management practices.

However, the key competitive factors that give LWI an edge over its competitors are the amount of inventory that the company maintains, its qualified team, well equipped QC lab and transparent business practice. "We have about 25 member team for this work and source parts from OEMs. We do a lot of R&D and testing before we buy and stock those parts. There are many products that might not be available even with the manufacturers and are often available even with the manufacturers and are often available in LWI’s inventory," adds Samyal.

Today, LWI is an ISO9001: 2000 certified global franchise based semiconductor components and network equipment distribution company, a part of Live Wire Electronics Group. As an organisation, LWI has grown to become the preferred independent distributor of choice to numerous customers. Since 1999, LWI has built a reputation for itself as a highly reliable provider of service and products. LWI is committed to customer satisfaction that is reflected in each aspect of business activity, be it interacting and negotiating with manufacturers or maintenance of inventory, sales or customer service. The adoption of innovative and practical approach to independent distribution enables LWI to deliver on its promise of quality, consistently.

The major contributing factor to LWI’s success as an independent stocking distributor of electronic components has been the maintenance of substantial product inventory from the world’s finest manufacturers. The state-of-the-art system adopted at LWI provides access to a huge database of components and manufacturers, which enables sourcing of worldwide availability of components. A full time technical support and in-house engineering staff helps the customers choose the correct devices for their varied needs.
