About Us

Alexan Commercial was established in 1972 to distribute semiconductor components when ICs were still new in the Philippines. Over three decades into the business, it has grown from a simple retailing company to one that caters to a wider range of clientele.

At present, Alexan carries extensive lines of electronic components, production tools, test instruments, universal   programmers, and equipments from leading manufacturers. We also market our own brand of electronic test instruments such as color pattern generators, digital and analog multimeters, function generators and oscilloscopes. In line with its objective of providing quality products and introducing new technology, Alexan obtained distributorship from world-leading manufacturers such as Meanwell, Belfuse and Hi-Lo Systems and invested in research and development to support these products effectively.


Alexan's proficiency in R&D, especially in microcontroller applications, is proven by dozens of in-house developed products that have shown their potentials for local and foreign markets-some of these are power-on-delay, digital power supply, telephone analyzer, to name a few. This expertise is also offered for our customers' OEM, ODM, and turnkey project requirements. Some of these are the grain moisture meter (SHEGA III) manufactured in cooperation with BPRE (Bureau of Post Harvest Research and Expansion) and the DM-705 low-cost digital multimeter a joint project with DOST-Technicom (Department of Science and Technology).

At present, Alexan has also designed and produced a number of custom-designed products such as indoor and outdoor moving display systems, digital clock systems, scoreboards with wired and wireless controllers and production boards.

To provide students with the necessary learning tools for their electronics education, Alexan designed its own trainer for Zilog microcontrollers in 2003. Publication of a series of theoretical and laboratory-based books followed which help schools, colleges and universities in the learning process of their students. Alexan's commitment to introduce new technology to its customers prompted the design of the Atmel-based MCU programmer and trainer in 2006.

To further service its growing clientele, Alexan expanded its product line to include complementary and support products, particularly educational and professional books. The wide selection of titles varies from business and management, computer, industrial technology and electronic technical books. As part of its commitment to popularize electronics technology, Alexan helped establish its sister company, Electronics Hobbyists Publishing House, which publishes Electronic Enthusiasts and Projects & Circuits-the only locally-produced electronics magazines for students, hobbyists, and professionals. Many of the construction projects featured in these magazines are available at its stores as ready-to-assemble electronic kits.

To serve its customers efficiently and effectively, Alexan opened its first branch in the early 1990s in one of the biggest malls in Metro Manila. Four more branches followed. Through these, Alexan has made its prices more competitive while maintaining the same quality for the benefit of its customers: the professionals, the academe, students and hobbyists. Alexan has maintained its tradition of excellence and quality to provide its clients the same efficient service and more access to advanced products that Alexan is known for.

For over thirty years now, Alexan has been committed in providing quality products and services to its customers.  Consequently, Alexan has been a household name in electronics, a name synonymous with satisfaction and quality.
