We are unique in the industry with a corporate structure where sales drives production. Sales management has the authority to assign priorities and shift production on the fly in order to meet our customers’ needs. We strive to build an atmosphere of total teamwork where EVERY opinion matters, and every suggestion is given consideration. We believe in a well-run company with a highly motivated staff where managers actually work FOR their departments, not over them.

We work with YOUR system to simplify the JIT process. We specialize in annual contracts with flexible release dates where we keep safety stock so you won’t have to. We want to be the key vendor who’s not on your speed dial! It’s OUR job to make YOUR job easier. We don’t say “We can’t”, we just do it!

If you have an emergency, Innovative Components, aka The Knob Source®, is also the best in the industry when it comes to short lead times. Give us a try!

Innovative Components also offers services such as bagging, pad printing, hot stamping, private labeling, and retail packaging.
