FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: MARCH 29, 2011

High Quality Electronic Component Catalog

Commitment to the continued publishing of its high-quality electronic component catalog.

Belmont, California – Jameco Electronics announced its commitment to the continued publishing of its high-quality electronic component catalog. In response to Digi-Key's announcement this week to discontinue its component catalog after more than 40 years, Jameco reaffirmed commitment to publish its catalog through at least 2012.

"I can understand why Digi-Key has planned on suspending their catalog production," said James Farrey, Jameco CEO, "we've heard our customers complain it was very difficult to navigate through. By contrast, Jameco customers tell us that at a time when we are seeing explosive growth in our website traffic, they still want a quality catalog that allows for easy product comparison."

Jameco's catalog offers a number of unique features in the electronic component industry.

Side-by-side product comparisons

The catalog is designed the way electronics buyers shop, allowing for quick comparison of similar products from different brands in one matrix, unlike other catalogs.

Competitive Pricing

Jameco sets its pricing below its competitors by offering house brand and factory overrun inventory to expand customers' pricing options.

Web and Catalog Integration

Jameco keeps its catalog to just 200 pages by integrating the web and catalog together. Every product module in the catalog has a web code allowing all readers to quickly jump to the web to see more products, more specifications, and up-to-date product information without having to search the website.

Color Graphics

We are the only distributor committed to full-color and high-production value catalog publishing. This takes the risk out of finding the right electronic component. Jameco's electronic component catalog is available free of charge by going to www.Jameco.com/freecatalog.
