Invision has been a customer of Active Components since at least 1987. We have always found the team at Active to be attentive and responsive to our requirements. The range of products has always been good and their tie-ups with overseas suppliers has been very advantageous for short lead time and prototype jobs. The staff have always been prepared to track down other components to facilitate production. We would not hesitate to recommend Active Components to prospective customers.
