Through our extensive global network of thousands of manufacturer-authorised sources, we can order traceable current parts via a range of order and delivery models – including blanket, call off and kanban.

Our rigorous quality management system means we can:

  • Demonstrate the pedigree of every part 
  • Trace and document all processes from procurement to sales 
  • Mitigate the threat of counterfeit or unapproved components 

Why Princeps?

Princeps has been providing safe, traceable electronic, electrical & electromechanical (EEE) components under our Princeps PRIME and PRIME+ service levels since they were first introduced in 2008. 

Traceability is essential within the industries we serve, because the risks posed by counterfeit parts is catastrophic. Our global network of thousands of manufacturer-authorised sources ensures our client’s orders come direct from the manufacturer, whether this is for board level EEE components, COTS assemblies or even consumable items.

Which Princeps service is right for your business?

Princeps PRIME

  • Orders are globally sourced direct from the Original Component Manufacturer (OCM) or one of their current authorised distributors, negating the sourcing limits that come with using franchise distribution.
  • The use of an authorised supply chain is the foremost mitigation method suggested by component manufacturers, industry and regulatory bodies.
  • We take advantage of global pricing disparities to bring manufacturer authorised parts at unbeatable value.
  • Overcome local shortages by utilising our global network of manufacturer authorised sources nurtured over the last 15 years

Princeps PRIME+

  • Adds aerospace level traceability to the standard PRIME service level offering.
  • Designed specifically for military, aerospace and defence, based on the additional requirements that the latest AS9100D revision places on organisations to combat the threat of counterfeit components. 
  • Provides all the benefits of PRIME, with Manufacturer Certificates of Compliance and traceability documentation supplied with the goods. 
  • Provides a documented chain of custody and paper chain straight back to OCM, with traceability records held for a minimum of 15 years.
