Clarification still required regarding the "gray market"...
The electronics Media and Franchised Distributors are still blaming counterfeit supply on the "Gray Market". We have always argued that the true perpetrators are operating in the Black Market.

Flextronics or Jabil prices are unachievable for the majority of OEM and EMS companies because of their position in the marketplace. Many Broker OEM and EMS companies are signing up to our New "BOM Matching" service to access fully traceable, top quality guaranteed parts at a fraction of their current cost.
