RS gains accolade of ‘High Service Distributor’ for 2018 from Omron Electronic Components Europe
LONDON, UK, 1 August 2019 – RRS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE: ECM), a global multi-channel provider of industrial and electronic products and solutions, today announced it has garnered the ‘Best High Service Distributor’ from Omron Electronic Components Europe, a subsidiary of Omron Corporation, recognised worldwide as a leader of high quality, high technology electrical and electronic control equipment and component products, including the very latest in sensor technology.
Omron’s portfolio available from RS includes electromechanical PCB relays, micro switches, MOSFET relays, DIP switches, photomicrosensors and connectors. Omron Electronic Components has a strong portfolio of innovative technologies including MEMS based pressure, flow and thermal measurement sensors, human face and gesture recognition modules, vibration and tilt sensors.
A number of awards, including ‘Best High Service Distributor’, were given out last month in Barcelona at a distribution summit for Omron Electronic Components Europe. At the event, the manufacturer was represented by top management from Japan, including the company president Shizuto Yukumoto, and the Omron Europe management team.
“Our distribution partners are central to delivering the outstanding service experience that is characteristic of Omron,” said Hafeez Najumudeen, European Distribution Manager at Omron. “These awards are based on a rigorous assessment using criteria that reflect quality of service, marketing, sales growth and design support and recognise the very high standards that our distributors achieve. Performance was strong across the board, but the award winners stood out as offering something special.”
“Winning the ‘Best High Service Distributor’ award for 2018 from a company such as Omron is a significant honour for us,” said Eleonora Ricciardi, Global Head of Product & Supplier Management for IP&E at RS. “As well as our leadership in the industrial realm, this award is yet another marker that demonstrates our strength and increasing penetration in key electronics system markets across Europe and globally.”
