For over 40 Years TTI Has Been Ensuring Our Customers Are Never Line-down Due To An IP&E Component Stock-out


At TTI we have always believed that distribution’s essential service is to make as much inventory available to our customers as possible. TTI is committed to stocking a full family of interconnect, passive, electromechanical (IP&E) and discrete semiconductor products.

In North America TTI carries over 500,000 part numbers; globally, the number is over 850,000. TTI has more IP&E and discrete components immediately available to you than from any other source.


IP&E components represent the heavy lifting of inventory management since they are 75% of the typical BOM component count, 85% of PCB placements and only 7% -10% of total spend.


Our systems have been developed and tailored for over 40 years to meet the special requirements of IP&E and discrete products. This enables TTI to minimize processing cost and maximize continuity of supply, giving you the lowest Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and peace of mind. TTI's supply chain solutions are integrated into our mainstream business through Advanced Inventory Management (AIM) – our proprietary system that is the heart of TTI’s world-class inventory management system. AIM has been specifically designed to facilitate the management of thousands of low cost IP&E and discrete components, ensuring data processing accuracy, increase product availability to our customers and eliminate non-value-add transactions.
