GD Rectifiers work with distributors on replacement parts

With a vast selection of over 30 brands and several new product ranges added to our portfolio over the past two years, GD Rectifiers has taken steps to service modern buyers and engineers demanding customised solutions in the electronics industry.


Work with distributors on replacement parts

At GD Rectifiers we are confident that we’ll have the part you need, or if not, a direct replacement. As leading distributors, we are are specialists in sourcing modern day alternatives to obsolete parts, finding more cost-effective components for tight budget projects and suggesting parts with a longer life expectancy for on-going maintenance to large projects or spares and repairs.

GD Rectifiers work closely with customers and OEMs to design-in components, meeting the exact specifications outlined by customers. We also design register the component so that it is exclusively manufactured for that customer only. We work with IXYS, Semikron and Dynex to offer a range of alternative Westinghouse and International Rectifier devices.

Whether buyers are looking for unusual package resistance value, tolerance beyond the datasheet values, or specialist terminations, at GD Rectifiers we can offer a solution for your requirements.

Custom components can often be cost-effective and in-line with standard models, and when working with a distributor it will save customers a lot of time sourcing the products.
