Global distribution partnership helps innovators build smart products, faster

18-02-2019 | RS Components | Design Applications

RS Components has signed a global distribution agreement with AVX Corporation. The agreement allows RS to support the full AVX portfolio and give customers faster access to new products.

Augmenting the company's extensive range of passive components from leading brands, the portfolio complements the even broader selection of semiconductors, connectivity solutions, magnetics, electromechanical parts and enclosures that help customers satisfy a high proportion of the BOM for each of their products. The company also provides a strong selection of engineering essentials including safety products, test and measurement equipment, and access to design tools through the DesignSpark online community.

“Forging our new relationship with AVX extends the selection of high-quality, market-leading products we can offer our customers to build their latest innovations,” said Andy Keenan, vice president, Board-level Electronics at RS. “Bringing important new AVX launches to market will enable us to further grow sales and deliver top performance.”

Graeme Dorkings, vice president, Global Distribution Sales at AVX, commented: "We are delighted to expand our relationship with Electrocomponents plc and in particular, RS. For many years, a limited range of AVX products has been available through RS, but we have worked hard to expand the product portfolio, and have exciting plans for further growth around our new focus products. The extensive customer base in Europe and Asia, as well as the outstanding design tools available from RS, make them a great fit for AVX.”
