Celebrating our 22 nd year ……….. Since 1993
Elite Sales & Technology, Ltd.
Thank You for considering us as a potential supplier and
taking time to review this presentation.
Elite Sales & Technology, Ltd. was incorporated as a North Carolina company in June of 1993. Key factors in the
decision to form Elite Sales as a North American “front panel component” marketing company were specific product
knowledge, US account knowledge and, in particular, a close and personal association with its manufacturing partners.
In 2003 Elite Sales & Technology, Ltd. founded Top Bound USA. Due to being the North American exclusive sales and
engineering agent of Top Bound Asia, this move was made to further elevate the Top Bound brand name as a true global
Recently, due to the changing business climate in China and Taiwan, Top Bound Asia decided it would be in their best
interest to concentrate its efforts on high quantity accounts only. With this move in mind, Elite Sales has reverted back to
marketing its complete product lines under its corporate name, Elite Sales & Technology, Ltd. Top Bound Asia remains
a manufacturing partner of Elite Sales.
Elite’s main goal is to continue its 22+ year tradition of providing high end front panel product lines and unparalleled
service to major OEMs worldwide.

The Most Common Types Of Connectors:
Uses rubber conductors and insulators in alternating layers. The conductive
rubber is impregnated with carbon to allow the current to flow through the
layer. This design ensures more than one conductor is always contacting the
electrode surface. A T Type connector is generally used when an application
calls for limited space (width). T Type has no side insulation.
Uses a T Type connector supported on both sides by soft rubber, nonconductive insulating materials. This self-supporting connector has soft outside
insulators that aid in stability and protect the conductive layers from the
environment. These connector types are suitable for large LCD displays.
Uses a T Type connector supported on both sides by a sponge layer. This
special sponge layer has closed-cell air pockets that allow the connector to
absorb more deformation than other similar connectors. These connectors
are also suitable for use with large LCD displays.
