About Us

Component Sense is a forward-thinking, global marketplace for the redistribution of excess and obsolete (E&O) component stock.

The business was founded in 2001 by Kenny McGee, Managing Director and CEO. After visiting electronic factories around the world, he was astounded by the high volume of E&O component waste being generated. With the focus on production, high value waste components are often discarded. Component waste typically ends up feeding the counterfeit supply chain, or is dumped in wastelands. Not only is this costly to businesses, but it is also having a negative impact on our planet.

Applying a common sense approach, we aim to lead electronics manufacturers towards zero component waste, preventing E&O component stock from becoming scrap in the first place, thereby creating a more sustainable future for the industry. Using innovative tech solutions, we make it easy for global manufacturers to do the right thing with their E&O inventory.

All of our stock is sourced from large OEM and EMS clients, giving our customers unparalleled levels of confidence. With a focus on customer satisfaction, we aim to provide an exceptional level of service at every step of the purchase/selling process.

Our team is comprised of talented, ambitious and enthusiastic people who love to get things done, and we are proud of our company culture, which is shaped by our core values: enterprise, positivity, integrity and clarity (EPIC). These are the values we live by as a business.
