Extended Life Cycle Support
Pentek provides extended life cycle support to customers with long-term program requirements to ensure availability of products beyond the Active Phase. Customers must contact Pentek before the Limited Life Cycle period expires to establish an appropriate plan to satisfy future requirements.
Bonded Inventory Program
The purpose of the program is to guarantee availability of a specified quantity of at-risk Pentek products, because some of the required components have been declared end-of-life (EOL) by the manufacturer.
- Pentek will acquire and reserve enough EOL components to build the specified quantity of products, and then review the bill of materials for any additional EOL components every six months.
- The customer will pay for the components purchased for bonded inventory, plus a management fee for administrating the program.
- The customer may order any quantity of products up to the specified quantity any time during the program or at the end of the program.
- Pentek will issue a credit for the cost of the bonded inventory components used to produce the ordered products.
