RSAccolade acknowledges role of RS in achieving significant sales growth across Europe for Souriau’s industrial connector range

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 European Distribution Excellence Award from Souriau, a market leader in the design and manufacture of industrial interconnect solutions.  The award was presented in recognition of the company’s unparalleled contribution to the sales growth of Souriau’s existing product lines across the Europe region, and for the rapid introduction to market of the supplier’s new product lines.

RS scored outstanding performance levels when measured on factors such as Point of Sales (POS) growth, the number and value of new designs, the quality and size of the customer base, and new product inventory levels, in addition to Best Service practices recognised by end users.

RS currently stocks over 1,000 Souriau interconnect devices designed for severe environments, from industrial, broad line and universal ranges to complex systems with integrated functions such as filtering, high speed data transmission, hermetic seal, separation mechanism, remote handling and underwater mating.

“We are very happy with the great partnership we have with RS at all levels and we are confident that we will continue our shared success story to develop future business opportunities,” commented Alexandre Decombejean, Souriau’s Pan European Distribution Manager.

Kevin McCormack, Global Head of Interconnect, Passives and Electromechanical, RS Components, added, “This award is once again affirmation from a key supply partner that the ongoing online initiatives we are undertaking at RS to provide our customers with the widest possible choice of products, along with faster, easier access to source and buy parts, are benefiting the bottom line of global vendors such as Souriau.”
