Supplier Spotlight: International Electronics Components

In 1966, Jim Stone founded International Electronic Components (IEC) in Montreal, Québec. The company soon became the premier distributor to the printed circuit board industry in Eastern Canada, through partnerships with Dynachem, Chemcut and Mica. Today Jim’s son Shawn serves as president and majority owner, carrying out his father’s commitment to maintaining an outstanding customer experience through sales, service, and technical support.

We’re very grateful for our ongoing partnership with IEC

Elden Hendrickson

In 1998, Shawn and industry veteran, Chuck Williams, partnered to start IEC USA, headquartered in Santa Clara, CA.  Since then the company has expanded nationwide. IEC offers a product portfolio sourced from leading-edge suppliers and globally recognized companies. Their mission is to provide the right products, at the right place, at the right time.

“IEC works very closely with our partners to assist our customers,” said Calumet Electronics Vice President/CPO Elden Hendrickson, Jr. “They supply us with Rogers laminate material and have also been a great source of information and help. Shawn Stone and Chris Hrusovsky are always there and ready to assist us, which is super valuable in this industry with so many twists and turns.”

One example of IEC’s dedication to customer service came in 2021, when Calumet Electronics partnered on a project with IEC and Rogers Corporation. IEC facilitated the partnership through several video calls and on-site visits, working closely with Rogers and Calumet’s Engineering and Management Teams to determine best practice manufacturing processes for several Rogers materials. This new capability allowed Calumet to expand our marketplace offerings and gain new business at several key OEMs with these materials. 

IEC continuously explores ways to make the customer experience more efficient. They established their own warehouses in Elk Grove Village, IL and Norristown, PA to ensure that product inventory was closer to the customers in those regions. The company also has warehouses in Toronto, Santa Clara and Orange County, CA, as well as Phoenix, Denver, and Logan, UT. IEC maintains an array of consumables partnerships while also representing top-tier international equipment companies.

“We’re very grateful for our ongoing partnership with IEC,” said Hendrickson. “They’ve been doing this work for more than five decades, and it shows. They play a key part in helping us keep our business on track. We look forward to many more years of working together to benefit our customers.”
