Newark Electronic offers thousand of products from hundreds of manufacturers

In business since the late 1930s, Newark Electronics began as a small shop on “Radio Row” in Chicago. Sam and Abe Poncher, also referred to as “The Fathers of Distribution”, began selling radio parts under their company name Newark shortly after the advent of the radio. In 1960, Newark went public and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange as Newark Electronics. Today, Newark Electronics is known as Newark In One, but remains a definitive source for distribution of electronics and electronic components.

Their catalog, referred to as an “industry bible”, consists of thousands upon thousands of products from hundreds of manufacturers. Instruments, wires, cables, semiconductors, and a myriad of other electronic supplies, components, and products can be found in the famous catalog. Electronic engineers and professionals can order through the catalog or online, though Newark claims most of their customers prefer to order online once they have gleaned all the product information from the print catalog. In addition to their large selection, they offer services that businesses need and want. Newark will dedicate inventory to help meet shipping deadlines, package and label according to specification and will pre-cut cable and wire before shipping if requested.

In addition to their customer service, they aid their business customers in complying with the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS), which is quickly becoming legislated in states across the US and in other countries around the world. Green Laws, such as RoHS, have been put in place in recent years due to the frequent use and disposal of electronics. Compliance with RoHS, which is often referred to as the Lead Law, is achieved by monitoring levels of six different substances including lead.
