RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has received the 2011 ‘Distributor of the Year’ award from LeCroy, a leading supplier of oscilloscopes and serial data test solutions. The award was presented for outstanding sales performance on the LeCroy range of distribution test equipment, which includes the popular WaveAce, WaveJet and WaveSurfer families of oscilloscopes designed to help view, analyse and document waveforms.

Since the two companies began working together less than two years ago, RS has achieved exceptional sales growth for LeCroy oscilloscopes in the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) region. The distributor is now accredited as one of LeCroy’s key strategic distribution partners, and offers a comprehensive range of LeCroy products from its strategic branded portfolio.

“RS’ sales teams across Europe, Middle East and Africa are highly proactive and approachable, and over the past two years they have created and nurtured strong relationships with our sales organisation in order to identify and convert opportunities for LeCroy products in all of the key strategic markets,” commented Nicola Gomiero, Distribution Sales Director for LeCroy. “We congratulate RS on this award, and we are confident that our partnership will continue to strengthen and provide both companies with excellent potential for further growth.”

“We are delighted to receive this award from LeCroy, which offers some of the most technically advanced test equipment to improve productivity and help engineers resolve design issues faster and more effectively,” said Jon Boxall, Global Head of Semiconductors and Electronics Test & Measurement at RS Components. “LeCroy’s approach to market is highly complementary to the RS strategy of supporting customers in the ‘find, design-in and buy’ process, through the provision of online tools and resources. Engineers are recognising our ability, in conjunction with leading suppliers such as LeCroy, to help them bring their products to market more quickly.”
