The Melville components maker Nu Horizons Electronics says its inventory has been added to a searchable online database run by a top industry association.
Nu Horizons will use the site to sell its semiconductor, display, illumination and power products.
The database site, launched this year by the Electronics Components Industry Association, or ECIA, is the first peer-owned website of its kind, the company said. It is owned by its member companies.
Only products authorized by original equipment manufacturers are offered on the site.
Nu Horizons, a subsidiary of Arrow Electronics, said the website will give customers a reliable way to find products backed by the manufacturer’s warranty.
Arrow, which just moved its headquarters from Melville to Colorado, bought Nu Horizons in September 2010 for about $130 million.
Nu Horizons has sales facilities in more than 50 locations across North America, Asia and Europe. With more than 700 employees it had sales of $671 million for its most recent fiscal year ended Feb. 28.
