We buy electronic components from around the world - as well as a lot of metal and plastic enclosures, displays, CNC machined parts and other fabricated items.

Global procurement

Worldwide component procurement – to your advantage.

The members of our UK purchasing team have over 50 years’ experience in the electronics industry – so it’s not surprising they’re always able to find the right components for each project: it is part of the added value of using OSI Electronics.

In addition to buying a considerable amount of electronic components, we also buy a lot of metal and plastic enclosures, displays, CNC machined parts and other fabricated items.

This gives us significant purchasing power through our network of national and international suppliers – which enables us to find new sources quickly in the event of a supply chain failure.
