Long Term Storage Solutions

Safe storage and quality testing of sensitive components

Long Term Storage Solutions (LTS), is a service by Totech Europe offering safe, off-site storage and quality testing of components, subassemblies and moisture sensitive devices. Our secure, quarantine areas are compliant to international standards for MSD and Long Term Component Storage, (J-STD-033 & IEC62435).


Shortage of electronic components

Since the COVID-19 outbreak, we were forced to work and communicate from home, causing a huge increase in sales of personal computers, game consoles and other smart devices. This sales boom has led to a very high demand for electronic components and consequently a shortage of semiconductors in other industries. The shortage of chips caused by the pandemic may be less then in 2024, but the supply chain issue isn’t over. Demand continues to increase as a diverse range of industries are receiving an influx of chip orders and manufacturers are struggling to keep up. Long-term storage of electronic components is a solution for you as manufacturer to get ahead of this problem in the future.

Long term storage solutions

We know that keeping stock of SMT components and PCB’s is essential to keep manufacturing lines running and guarantee the availability of replacement parts for the long term. We also know that storing components is a complex discipline requiring specialist equipment, finely tuned processes & reliable environmental control. Choosing the right storage can allow components to perform reliably to specification long after original manufacturers guarantees have expired. It can slow down the aging process, allowing components to retain their ‘Form, Fit and Function’ credentials.


  • No waste of valuable production space on the storage of Last Time Buy components. Space costs money!
  • Our specialised knowledge in dry/cool storage helps you avoid damaged components and ultimate failure of parts.
  • Avoid the dangers of component obsolescence. If ignored this risks the product losing some or all of its function, or requiring expensive re-engineering.
  • Maintain full productivity & ability to fulfill service contracts.

Helping you to manage component obsolescence

Faced with the challenges of high demand as well as rapid changes in packaging design and materials, many manufacturers find themselves forced to advance purchase additional quantities of components to guard against the impact of component obsolescence on their final product designs. This in turn creates an issue of Long Term inventory Storage. Let us help you manage these problems.

Short product lifecycles

Product lifecycles have become very short with new models being released sooner than ever before. However, many manufacturers in industries including automobiles, aviation and avionics, military and railway must guarantee the availability of replacement parts including PCBs for ten or even twenty years. This demands the advance purchase and extended storage of components and materials.

Further complicating the problem is that most components cannot be stored for more than a few years without very special handling procedures.

Secure storage & quality testing of sensitive components

We use our patented technologies for temperature and humidity control with transparent and fully traceable. Storage of electrical (MSL) components in a safe, secure and controlled environment over a longer period of time can be a solution to avoid problems such as:

  • Contamination
  • Corrosion
  • Diffusion
  • Thin pest
  • Moisture absorption

Safety & Security

Controlled and oxidation free environment to keep components in optimal conditions. (multiple climates can be discussed.) All rooms are ESD safe and can only be entered via a sluice.

An advanced fire extinguishing system is installed which does not harm components should it need to be deployed. Camera systems around the building monitor visuals and temperature in the immediate surrounding area and the neighbouring buildings.

Quality testing services we offer in cooperation with testing experts, RoodMicrotec.
