“Advanced MP Technology has been a founding member of IDEA for the past 5 years, since IDEA’s inception. During this period of time, we have seen it quickly evolve into a well recognized and highly respected entity in the Independent Distribution Channel. IDEA, which started as a simple nonprofit organization in our industry, has become a reliable forum, not only for members’ collaboration, but also as a unique foundation for quality guidelines and reference publications. The fact that Advanced MP Technology has been in business for over 30 years as an approved supply chain partner and preferred distributor to top OEM and EMS customers worldwide, provides us many opportunities to frequently converse with top players in our industry. From these conversations, we have found that many of them are either fully aware of IDEA or have some information regarding IDEA and its valuable role in our industry. Because membership in IDEA requires specific qualifications and criteria, being a member definitely adds to its member’s credentials. We feel it is tremendously beneficial for non-member, qualified distributors to apply, participate and become a member of this organization in order to take advantage of the programs and benefits IDEA has to offer."
