Consignment Program

As a longer term and a preventive measure to mitigate excess inventories on an ongoing basis, we offer a customized consignment program to take advantage of upcoming requirements in the market to achieve a better return on your inventory. We do this by utilizing our warehouses in America, Europe, and Asia.

Component Life-cycle Management

Due to component manufacturers’ continuous efforts to redesign new semiconductors with faster and more advanced technology; End of Life (EOL) and Last Time or Lifetime Buys (LTB) are now common terms for the OEM customers. For many OEM’s who are still supporting legacy products, sourcing obsolete components can create challenges. Impromptu LTB’s can be financially restrictive, and EOL products can be difficult to source at the last minute.

AMPT provides various Component Lifecycle Management services to worldwide Fortune 500 customers to support EOL and LTB requirement issues. Our industry experience and relationships, robust sourcing, and logistics capabilities will ensure that you don’t go into a line down situation.
