The Altex Group was founded in 1998 as a company providing large enterprises with wholesale supplies
of electronic components. We started our activities in Zelenograd, one of the major scientific and industrial
centers of the Soviet and Russian electronics and microelectronics.
Since 2000, a steady turnover of complete equipment allowed to provide inquiries of retail and small
wholesale buyers. Even then storage nomenclature of partners’ warehouses had more than 200,000 part numbers.
We were among the first to actively explore the Internet and develop special services for consumers and
industry participants. So the first of the projects was RadioMarket —
messaging system for the purchase and sale of components, launched in 2001.
In 2006, together with the Capital Plus company we have launched ChipFind.ru project. Almost every radio ham in
Russia knows this name. We worked or 12 years and in that time we have collected a huge database of technical
information of the world level at the pages of the project.
Since 2007, we develop the most convenient online store in our view,
where every radio ham or company can buy even just one component. Our store has become the standard, on which competitors orientate themselves.
