Discover how we’re committed to supporting buyers and purchasers and continuing to offer numerous benefits
The power electronics industry has been reshaped over the past 18 months as the global pandemic has impacted a shift in the workplace and people’s ways of working. Alongside the shift in working patterns, the industry is experiencing extreme component shortages and supply chain difficulties and as a result the role of a power electronic component distributor is more crucial now than ever. Engineers, buyers and purchasers are requiring timely access to the latest products, lead times and technical resources that distributors offer. GD Rectifiers has invested heavily in its stock holding, infrastructure, in-house machining capabilities, the services they offer and their technical resources.
Over 170,000 components in stock
GD Rectifiers’ key focus has always been to hold sufficient stock to service its existing and potential new customers. GD Rectifiers works differently to other distributors, rather than stocking the newest products and technology, we hold stock of the most popular parts within our specialist range, ensuring we hold stock of the components our customers need. The company’s recent expansion in 2014 to its new purpose-built factory has allowed the company to accommodate even more stock and has increased their manufacturing capabilities and footprint within the power electronics industry.
Best-in-class technical support
GD Rectifiers work closely with engineers, buyers and purchasers to share their knowledge and technical support on every project, offering product recommendations, cost effective solutions, customised designs and prototyping. GD Rectifiers prides itself on its small and specialist technical and sales teams, offering direct access to customers requiring specialist technical support.
At GD Rectifiers you won’t be put through to a call centre in another country, you’ll be put through to our sales team in the UK and have direct access to our technical teams for ongoing support on your projects. Customers use GD Rectifiers as their knowledge hub, the company works as an extension to internal buying and procurement teams, providing dedicated account management, forecasting assistance and inventory support when required.
Specialist product range, specialist distributor
The specialist distributor typically orders stock months in advance of anticipated demand which provides customers with access to the broadest range of components at competitive prices. GD Rectifiers sales and technical teams do an excellent job at liaising with factories daily, staying on top of component lead times and notifying existing customers of price increases or delivery delays, keeping them updated on product availability every step of the way. We carry over 170,000 components in stock, all available on a next day delivery. GD Rectifiers understand that sometimes replacement parts can be required urgently as part of a maintenance repair or refurbishment job which is why they also offer same day delivery at an additional cost.
Despite all of the challenges the last 18 months has presented to the power electronics component industry, GD Rectifiers has added four new manufacturers to their product portfolio which include, Anysolar, Meth Kft, Meth Srl and Applied Thermal Control.
Access to products outside of the component portfolio
Can’t find the manufacturer or part number you need on our website? Our experienced sales team are able to source components outside of our official distribution channels through our authorised partners. GD Rectifiers makes the component sourcing process as easy and stress-free as possible for customers, offering to source alternative products within their portfolio or outside of their existing product range, the company welcomes the opportunity to quote these projects to open a conversation with customers on alternative parts that can be used often on shorter lead times and offering significant cost savings.
