Custom Cables – The importance of a meeting lead times

Nowadays, people are busier than ever. You just got to your office and as soon as you open your work email, there is a long thread of emails waiting to be responded. On top of that, you already have a list of things you would like to get accomplished today.

If you are a purchaser of electronics, your team wants you to find the best prices and lead time for a number of part numbers and cables.  All of this together could be overwhelming to the novice.

Custom cables and components may fall under the same category we just described. You work with vendors to get you right price at the right time, but you notice that very few actual manufacturers and distributors can actually get back to you with the price and lead time you expect. The problem is that some of the salesmen who pick up the phone cannot get you an immediate answer. This is due to the fact that many of these folks may not have the amount of knowledge about their product, causing delays in responses. The problem is that your engineering department is always pushing you (the purchaser) to get an answer from the vendor; this is so that your company can actually get the product on time to finish the project. Because of this fact, you need to find vendors who most importantly have the knowledge about how long the cables take to be made. Since this is a critical part of the project, you really appreciate short lead times for the product. Keep in mind that some distributors outsource their manufacturing to overseas companies. This is of course not an option for you IF time is critical. Therefore, being able to work with Custom Cable Manufacturers and distributors in the US who have the experience and machinery to manufacture locally is ideal.

Here at we strive to get you the right answer in the shortest possible time.
