RS Components has been honoured with the award for ‘Outstanding Performance in High Service Level Distribution within Europe’ for a consecutive year by FCI, a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems. Once again, RS has received the accolade for its unparalleled quality of service throughout the year. Since the two companies began their strategic cooperation, RS has trebled its FCI line to give customers access to the most extensive range of products from the connector manufacturer.
With more than 1,500 FCI parts now available to purchase from RS stock, customers are able to select from the established core ranges, including the Basics+® range of standard connectors for board-to-board and wire/cable-to-board applications, as well as the latest introductions, such as high density D-sub connectors, and the Minitek® horizontal surface-mount headers in the 2.00mm pitch board-to-board and wire-to-board product portfolio. The advanced RS online ordering system enables customers to quickly and easily find and buy the right part for their application at competitive prices.
Ronald Velda, Sales Director, EMEA Distribution, FCI, said, “RS is a highly professional operation, clearly dedicated to providing outstanding levels of service to both suppliers and customers. Our partnership with them has been instrumental in our company realising substantial sales growth year on year. This award recognises RS’ valuable role in our success.”
Fred Knowles, Head of Product Management – Electronics, at RS, added, “Receiving this award from FCI for a second year running is a phenomenal achievement, and testament to the successful relationship that has developed between us while bringing these products to market. New product introductions are high on the agenda at RS, and we will continue to grow our FCI offering to deliver even greater choice to customers.”
