Welcome to greentrain

greentrain were formed in 2008 by three senior Managers from various electronic component distributors. They felt that the distribution market had created a significant gap between franchise outlets and grey market brokers. They felt that if a company could provide the services of a franchise distributor with the flexibility and ‘Total Component Life’ support that an independent could offer this would bridge that gap.

They soon established this hybrid supply solution with many OEM’s and CEM’s across various countries, however they also discovered one area that the fledgling business had not considered before.

The Managing Director of Green Train, Gary May, takes up the story

Although our business model was a success and was clearly needed in the market, not just for initial supply chain but when a part was going through obsolescence ( our ‘Total Component Life’ support programme ) we also found many customers were increasingly frustrated by the time, money, employee costs and just pure annoyance of getting all of the components, PCB’s and hardware together in the right place at the right time. Clearly a different picture emerged and greentrain’s kitting division was developed off the back of this requirement. This part of our business is now our biggest growth area and continues to go from strength to strength. We offer something different, a service that means OEM’s can retain control of when and where their product is built, but with a one order, one box, one invoice supply chain philosophy

Greentrain now have a 3000 sq ft facility with full ESD controlled areas, over $3m worth of inventory and customers all over the globe, from Blue Chip through to small local contract manufacturers. Above all greentrain have a great team of people ready to help you with every aspect of component supply, we look forward to hearing from you.
