Based in Dallas, Texas, Elite Cellular, Inc. is a global wholesaler and distributor of new and used electronics including cellular phones, accessories, set-top/DVR boxes, laptops, tablets and more. We participate in liquidation auctions, end of life programs, and sourcing transactions with carriers, insurance providers, remanufacturing organizations and OEMs which provides us with a consistent supply chain. We apply the highest level of quality on all our products. Our product lines consist of the latest models from Samsung, Motorola, LG, HTC, Apple, Sony and many more.
Elite Cellular began its operations in 2010 with a mission to become a de facto standard in the secondary electronics market. We started our operations primarily focused on retail expansion and after initial success we were able to expand our operations to wholesale distribution. Through our expansion over the years we have a full understanding of the lifecycle of the secondary electronics market from initial manufacturing to end-user distribution. Additionally, in 2015 we received our R2/ISO certification and have been performing end-to-end electronics recycling for our customers ever since.
Elite has built key strategic relationships over the past several years which have now resulted in a consistent supply for all of our products. Our key trading partners include AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile, Samsung, Sprint and more.
The quality of our products and the team that produces it is one of our greatest assets and a significant factor in our operations. We employ the highest quality and testing standards on all our products and have very high expectations from our production staff. Various production metrics are used to measure the performance of our operations and implement tactical and strategic initiatives that continue to improve our overall quality.
We have a collective 25 years in the electronics industry and have a wide network of resources to support our existing and future expansion. We distribute our products through wholesale, retail, and online channels both domestically and internationally and are well versed on domestic and international logistics.
No business can succeed without proper infrastructure, and we have implemented enterprise systems to ensure there is full oversight on all our functional operations including sales, production, inventory and back-office. This technology combined with the significant investment in our facilities results in operational excellence and provides the proper footing for future expansion.
