FOC is a stocking distributor in fiber optics and select other high technology fields that operates on an unusually high technical level.
We live primarily in the high end/high quality section of each market and avoid the cheap, poor quality parts and suppliers that result in re-works, product returns, missed deliveries and unhappy customers, or worse: failures in the field that can put equipment, data or even people at risk.
FOC is “at least as technical as the manufacturer” in several key areas.
When customers have technical questions about the use of the products, manufacturers often refers them to FOC, and in many cases, FOC knows more about the product and its use than the manufacturer does.
No minimum order quantities for most items, and no minimum order value; a researcher’s dream.
