About Us


Founded in 1984, Mectronic has been at the forefront of innovative ways to connect buyers with products ever since. From humble beginnings as a buyer’s guide for the electronics industry across Silicon Valley, throughout its history Mectronic has leveraged emerging technology to improve the scope and capabilities of its products, driven by the technical expertise and unmatched industry passion of founder Gerald Willis.

1998 was a landmark year for the company, renamed to, Inc. as it launched its first online search solution. While most people were still on dialup, laid the foundation for the part search solution that today is the go-to solution for businesses everywhere, powering hundreds of thousands of searches per month and featuring over a third of a billion parts.

Covering all major 1st tier component Distributors including Avnet, Arrow, Allied, Digi-Key, Future, Heilind, Mouser, Newark, Sager, TTI and many more, along with many 2nd tier and Independent Distributors,’s online part search technology is one of the most comprehensive business to business product discovery solutions in the world.

Free to use, the part search platform can be accessed without registering for completely anonymous searches, while registering itself is free and provides a range of additional tools to enhance the search experience. Registered users can set up their own preferred vendor list and restrict searches to just those vendors and add notes and ratings to each vendor that always remain strictly private. In addition, registered users can perform bulk searches of up to 50 separate part numbers at once, with a unique slider tab to display results exactly as needed. Once registered, you can also enjoy our alert feature that sends weekly emails if parts become available after a search.

Registered users can also sell parts on the short sell service. Whether reselling or simply listing excess inventory, the accepted parts are integrated into the search system for easy location by all users. Finally, registered users can post their requirements as well as see all other search requirements posted by other users, and receive email notifications for new user requirements.

While today’s solution is very different to those early buying guides, the attention to detail and commitment to customers, finding ways to connect buyers to sellers in the simplest way possible, remains the same. From the beginning, set out to help businesses find the high-quality components and products they need, and while the technology has changed, is still doing that, today and into the future.
