Founded as early as 2002 (Jan. 17th to be exact), the activities evolved from traditional distribution with an evident personal touch to a multi-disciplinary group of companies. Under one common identity umbrella the companies close the gap between component-of-the-shelf product distribution and final production assembly. For each step in between we have the ability to offer a solution, taking the needs of the application as starting point.
Partnership is of the highest value to us because we believe together we can achieve more. The inputs from customer(s) and the feedback from suppliers in combination with our knowledge of the market, the experience in the field of electronics and the regular visits to exhibitions and suppliers give DiBis the “edge” that is appreciated.
With our personal approach we enable professionals in the industry to achieve their goal to obtain display solutions, embedded boards and systems at a minimum of effort at competitive pricing.
Our goal is to become the most valued and inspiring display and related products partner for our customers and suppliers by constantly striving to source and supply the best possible products and services from around the world.
Our philosophy is to grow in added value and expertise, not just to increase volume and size. We believe that stability and continuity are the pillars of successful business. A substantial number of our customers have maintained a relationship even as far as from the early start of the company.
In order to keep the supply of products with constant quality and on-time strongly depends on the capability to build relationships with suppliers with different backgrounds. DiBis has an extensive track record in long term cooperation’s developed from mutual trust, benefit and continuity.
We believe Trust is a key element in working smoothly together. Sharing information, especially when it concerns a new development, can be a tricky thing. Our main suppliers and development / assembly partners have already signed a standard NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement). Per project we can extend the content when needed.
Developments in the world change more rapidly and drastically. What is in high demand one year, may become obsolete in the year after. We value our relationships with our suppliers, forwarding partners and customers, so we all benefit from sharing information and allow adopting to the future.
At DiBis we aim to support customers to develop the right mindset. We actively support projects with inputs and insights. By adding and deducting we are able to provide an overview for customers to optimize future availability, logistic services and speed.
Our means of transportation are under constant review. Faced with smaller shipments from various locations, sea freight has proven to be difficult. Furthermore electronics benefit from special packaging while being transported over sea. The new “silk route” by rail shows promising prospects, but the freight size requirements are high and the start and end location are not optimal. The additional shipping charges, delays and paperwork keep us from using rail transport for now.
We urge our forwarders to keep their attention on using more economical aircrafts with lower pollution output.
In this point and time everyone is convinced that we should do our best to preserve the planet for our future generations. At DiBis we optimize our shipments for CO2 reduction and avoid wasting packing material as much as possible. Besides that, all of our waste is sorted and a waste management company takes care of the little remaining waste that is left.
In our constant strive to decrease our carbon footprint, we switched to complete renewable electricity. That means that the power we use is 100% generated by in the Netherlands by solar, wind and water energy turbines. In the future we aim to be fully CO2 neutral.
RoHS (2) / WEEE
Electronic component and systems contain materials and metals that can be harmful for the environment when disposed improperly. The products that we supply are built according to the latest RoHS / WEEE directives. Returned products that are no longer suitable for usage are disposed of by professional waste management service companies.
REACH = Registration, Evaluation and Autorization of Chemicals (since 2007). The REACH Regulation is based on the precautionary principle, its requirements implement the principle as set out in the Communication from the Commission on the Precautionary principle (COM(2000)1).
Some examples of how the precautionary principle is implemented are:
- Safety assessment
- Risk management measures
Many of our suppliers are now reviewing their products, but the process will take quite some time. It is a process that needs to be evaluated and certified throughout the entire supply chain. Furthermore many of the REACH substances have already been banned by RoHS / RoHS 2 or the chemicals are in such a low level that REACH is not applicable.
