Celebrating 35 Years of Providing Best Value and Better Service for Our Customers

Do you remember the year 1984? We sure do! Prince rocked the radio. Ghostbusters ruled the silver screen. And on June 13th of that year, Q Source, Inc. (then known as Q Electronics) opened for business. We've been providing the best possible value, and even better service, to our customers ever since.

Led by founder and President Steve Quail and Vice President Gus Lugten, Q Source is a distributor of commercial industrial assembly and production environment products. With a focus on the Electronic, Pharmaceutical, and Bio-Medical sectors, our product offerings are used in most industrial-type manufacturing.

As our company has grown and evolved, so has our look. Check out the progression of our company logos throughout the years, above.

Company Purpose

Working closely with our customers to understand their production needs, objectives, and challenges has always been, and still remains, our top priority. We strive to find the best prices and product solutions and deliver them to our customers in a timely manner. “It has been a pleasure serving our customers for 35 years and we look forward to continuing to provide valued service and products that lead to our customers' success,” said Lugten.

Our People

Our dedicated staff looks to provide helpful assistance with all inquiries. We are fortunate to have several Q Source associates with more than 20 years of service. They, and the rest of our staff, work together as a team to provide the excellent customer service you expect. Using their extensive product knowledge and practical use experience they provide our customers with fast, straightforward answers. They provide our customers answers and service that those goliath, impersonal online stores cannot.

Brands of the Highest Quality

We're constantly searching out new products and new manufacturers to offer our customers the best solutions to meet their needs. From manufacturers we've worked with from the very beginning (Brady, Excelta, Hakko, InterMetro (Metro), PanaVise, Simco-Ion, Xuron Corp.) to the dozens of vendors now available on our Web site, we strive to work with brands of the utmost reliability and quality.

Thank You
