RS Components has been named ‘Distributor of the Year 2013’ by Schaffner, a leading supplier of EMC/EMI components, harmonic filters and magnetic components.
The award recognises the substantial efforts of the RS product team, which has worked in close cooperation with Schaffner to achieve unparalleled sales growth for the brand during the past twelve months.
“This award is a great boost for our team, and an indication of the rapport we have built with Schaffner to deliver the best value to our customers,” said Kevin McCormack, Global Head of IP&E at RS Components. “Schaffner’s products are world-renowned for their energy efficiency and reliability, so it is an even greater accolade to be recognised as a contributor in the growth of a business that takes green technology very seriously.”
Schaffner components are deployed in energy-efficient drive systems and electronic motor controls, in wind power and photovoltaic systems, rail technology, machine tools and robots as well as power supplies for numerous electronic devices in sectors such as medical technology or telecommunications. RS currently stocks around 600 parts within the range.
“One of the many benefits of distributing our products through RS is the fast, easy accessibility they provide to customers through their advanced online sourcing and purchasing system,” responded Paul Dixon, Sales Director EMEA, Schaffner. “They also have an impressive new product introduction programme, which means that customers are able to get hold of our latest innovations from stock virtually as soon as they come off the production line.”
