All quotes are valid for 24 hours and subject to prior sales.  Crystal Electronics, Inc. Sales Engineer will ask you for a target price (budgetary price) in the interest of getting you the most competitive price.  If we cannot meet or better your target, we will quote you our best price.  Pricing on hard to locate components is based on the existing market conditions including supply and demand.

Crystal Electronics, Inc. knows your time is valuable and each request is treated as urgent.  Our normal response time for online quotes is within two (2) hours.  In some cases, it may take longer if the stock is only available overseas.  You will always receive timely communication from our experienced and friendly Sales staff.  Please feel free to call us 24/7 for an immediate response.

Unlike most authorized or franchised distributors who only quote if they have inventory, our experienced Sales Engineers are trained to provide an exact cross or an alternate part by a different manufacturer.  Our Sales Engineer will research, locate stock, and provide you with the necessary specification details for your engineering department’s approval.  If we provide you with an alternate part and it does not meet your specification, we will gladly extend a full refund or credit once the parts are inspected and returned to our warehouse.  Buying from Crystal Electronics, Inc. saves the professional buyer time and money.  Call one of our Problem Solvers today.

Crystal Electronics, Inc. has a Quality Assurance Department.  No product is shipped to a customer that does not meet our rigorous inspection process. Any product that does not meet our criteria is rejected and returned to our supplier.  No product is procured from any supplier who has not been pre-qualified and must meet our stringent standards.  We do not purchase any product from China due to the incidence of counterfeit products from that part of the world.  We adhere to ISO9001:2000 management standards and are also ESD and AS9100 compliant.
