RS Components and Allied Electronics have been recognised for distribution excellence worldwide by Phoenix Contact, a leading manufacturer of electric connection and industrial automation technology. RS has been presented the Distribution Excellence Awards for both the Europe, Middle East and Africa and Asia Pacific regions, and Allied has won the award in the US.
Phoenix Contact presents the Distribution Excellence Awards every two years for excellence in sales growth. RS has won the award in EMEA for the second time in a row, this time for its outstanding partnership and turnover development in 2011. RS has also won the award in Asia Pacific, the first time it has been presented in the region, for its impressive growth and success since its partnership with Phoenix Contact began in 2010. This is also the second consecutive time that Allied has received the award in the US for its outstanding growth and marketing.
Frank Stührenberg, Executive Vice President, Phoenix Contact, said:
“It is with great pleasure that I have the privilege of awarding RS and Allied for the second consecutive time for their outstanding performance. These awards reflect the excellent cooperation and long-term commitment that both organisations share at all levels and globally.”
“We are proud to be the first company to win the Distribution Excellence Awards in the US and EMEA twice and to be the first distributor to win the Asia Pacific award,” said Klaus Göldenbot, Global Sales Director at Electrocomponents. “A clean sweep of the awards worldwide is a great recognition of the hard work of our people across the business. Their efforts helped to grow Phoenix Contact sales substantially in the last financial year.”
