initial success stories
Since beginning operations in February of 2011, the SRC Electronics team has successfully developed Electronics reman programs for several major heavy equipment OEM’s. At the conclusion of Fiscal 2015, two of those programs will represent OE revenues in excess of $30MM with margins as good or better than they recognize on their new product offerings. This is reflective of 133 successfully engineered, developed, and released reman product offerings, in a time period of just under 5 years. Currently, program revenues for these two partners are projected to grow in excess of $50MM by the conclusion of 2018 without taking into consideration additional authorized service offerings such as warranty programs, repair/return services, and core facilitation.
With respect to our most successful programs, the following were some key ingredients that catalyzed our results:

- Sales & Marketing Support (as required)
- Agreement on Minimum Program Gross Margin
- IP (if available)

Initial ASSESSMENT period
The SRC Electronics team performs a full end-to-end assessment of both Supply and Demand costs when initiating a new program launch with an OE partner. Our mission is to maximize the efficiency of our OE Partners and our own resources to return the greatest available economic value.
In short we are looking for answers to two questions about new programs:
Is a potential program economically viable?
This initial requirement is the responsibility of our Business Development and Sales Professionals. We use our experience and expertise to assess the program potential, identify early adoption candidates, and establish projects and subsequent release timelines.
Is a potential program technically viable?
This requirement is assessed in parallel with the economic program viability and is the responsibility of our Engineering and R&D Team. Our technical group helps identify product candidates with high commercial impacts and low technical barriers to entry.
