RS currently stocks approximately 2,500 individual devices in the ON Semiconductor portfolio and, as part of the franchise agreement, will augment its offer to deliver even greater choice to customers. This will include access to the latest product innovations from the semiconductor manufacturer, all competitively priced and available from RS stock for same-day despatch.
The appointment of RS as an official ON Semiconductor channel partner recognises the distributor’s pledge to provide superior customer service by supporting electronics engineers through a host of online design resources available via the DesignSpark community on the RS website. At the heart of this commitment lies the company’s sophisticated eCommerce strategy, which propels the development of online initiatives to ease the find, design and buy process for customers, and provides a strong link in the supply chain.
“The value that RS brings to our business is already well-established,” said Jeff Thomson, ON Semiconductor vice president of Global Channel Sales. “RS clearly understands the needs of our customers, and is constantly honing methods to hasten the products’ path to market, which profits the entire supply chain. This agreement will strengthen our relationship and open up opportunities for future growth.”
Chris Page, Global Offer Director for Electrocomponents said, “This franchise agreement will increase access for customers to the ON Semiconductor range and highlights the growing trend by leading manufacturers to look to RS as a key channel partner. With our global reach, and our commitment to engage with design engineers, we have a vital role to play in maximising the market potential of our suppliers’ products.”
