a1text – Approaching Our ISO 9002 Certification

As we approach our ISO 9002 Certification, Bruin Electronics remains a leading stocking distributor of electronic components. Over the past eight years our inventory has grown to more than 30 million pieces and includes DRAM, SRAM, Processors, Video RAM, EPROMS, Cache SRAM and FLASH memory.

At Bruin, we are able to keep pace with demand and ensure that we have an extensive selection of Integrated Circuits (IC’s) by paying top dollar for surplus and excess. In the rare instance that your desired component is not in stock, we have deep national and international networks to quickly locate what you need.

In addition to our vast inventory of new components and deep networks, we are able to reclaim IC’s from populated boards. Refurbished IC’s are appealing because they offer performance identical to new pieces along with amazing availability and affordability. Whether it’s refurbished or new, all of our products and services are guaranteed.

In 1999, Bruin launched a PC division in Rockford, IL, and Baldwinsville, NY. Individuals and businesses alike have benefited from Bruin’s ability to custom-build new systems to exact specifications and perform all service and upgrades onsite. They’ve also been able to take advantage of great discounts on pre-owned equipment as a result of our corporate lease buyouts.

Bruin Electronics is a company built on excellent service. Our proven team members have the highest integrity and professional commitment to our customers. We would love the opportunity to earn your business.

i3 – We Buy Excess

As one of the largest independent stocking distributors of Integrated Circuits, we are always looking for ways to increase our inventory and better serve our manufacturer base. To keep up with demand and ensure that we have one of the most extensive selections of IC’s, we pay to take surplus off your hands.

Our size, buying power, commitment to integrity, and desire to be the best means that you will receive top dollar for your surplus components as well as unparalleled service.

There are three easy ways to get a quote on your excess surplus:

1. e-mail a list of your excess chips

2. fax a list of your excess chips (815)987.2776

3. call for our UPS # and send us a sample of your excess populated circuit boards (800)573.8934

We will respond promptly with a quote. Please know that your surplus is worth more to Bruin than any other company in our field.

Why is your surplus so important? At Bruin we have the ability to reclaim and refurbish IC’s from populated boards. Obsolete, hard to find IC’s can be removed, restored, and made available for high priority equipment. Companies that create excess boards in their manufacturing process can have the chips recovered and made available for future use in their original optimal application. Overall, refurbished IC’s are extremely appealing because they offer performance identical to new pieces with amazing availability and affordability.

HOW OUR PROCESS WORKS
Bruin Electronics’ refurbishing process begins with evaluation and extraction from boards and ends with stellar components that are burned in and ready to use. As we near our ISO 9002 Certification, you can be sure that when a refurbished IC leaves Bruin it has passed through an extensive restoration process under the strictest supervision. All of our refurbished components come with an unconditional 30 day guarantee, impeccable service, and a price that can’t be beat.

OUR CONFIDENCE
Over twenty-five years ago, Bruin’s president, Peter Dietl, pioneered the concept of retrieving and reconditioning integrated circuits trapped in populated circuit boards. He also created the market for restored devices. Pete personally oversees our refurbishing team and provides the confidence we have in guaranteeing all pieces that leave our facility.
