We are looking forward to starting 2013, a year that is looking very promising for SimplyTronics. We will have new products being released in January and we’re working hard on new designs that we will be presenting in March-April.
Before we can start 2013 fully energized, we will have some holiday time off!
- SimplyTronics USA and Hong Kong offices will be closed on January 1, 2013.
- SimplyTronics China office will be closed January 1 to 3, 2013 (but open on January 5 and 6 matching the Chinese government holiday schedule).
While providing contract manufacturing services SimplyTronics only needed to stay in contact with a limited amount of people, mostly customers placing orders or requesting quotes.
As we design and sell more SimplyTronics branded product and even incursion in retail sales, we need to increase the communication channels with customers. We should be able to let customers know about the products we’re selling or any promotions we present from time to time but we also would like customers to have a voice in the product design process.
If we publicly announce specs of products we’re designing, customers will be able to request or suggest improvements or changes to the design so the future product could fulfill their needs.
For this reason we opened YouTube, Facebook and Twitter accounts and we’re making some improvements to the website to allow customers to “like” or promote website pages via their social media services.
These are the links to our current accounts:

While we work in the business/accounting system backbone for our eCommerce site, we decided to start selling or re-selling some products through eBay.
At this point we’re only re-selling kits or popular products that customers are searching for in eBay. Our core products will be for sale only through retailers and distributors for now.
Once our eCommerce site is up and running we will be selling not only the popular kits but also the parts we used to make the kits.
For now you can buy from SimplyTronics directly through our eBay account and you can also buy through our distributors.
