Rockwell Automation is announcing that it has signed a new sales partnership agreement with RS Components. The two companies have been working together successfully in the British market for a long time and this cooperation is now being extended to Germany. With the inclusion of Rockwell Automation’s extensive line up of components in RS Components’ product range, the agreement allows the company to meet its customers’ requirements for innovative and high-quality products.

The RS Components web store and linecard offer a comprehensive range of more than 550,000 products and reaches a diversified customer base in the development, construction and maintenance areas. Orders for core products are normally dispatched from the modern distribution centre to the customer the same day, or the next working day at the latest.

Hans-Martin Hörning, Regional Category Manager EMEA Automation Control at RS Components comments: “With our focus on small and medium quantities, we address a specific market segment and are looking forward to working with Rockwell Automation to develop the German market further. We always strive to provide our customers with excellent new products from well-known brands. Rockwell Automation’s safety components, low-voltage equipment and compact drive technology – especially the Micro800, its tailored and flexible nano and micro control system range – are an ideal complement to our portfolio.”

Marcel Woiton, sales director Germany, Rockwell Automation says: “We are looking forward to working with RS Components as our new distribution partner. Its access to a strongly differentiated customer segment means that the company is a key partner for us. RS Components will make a significant contribution to meeting the increasing demand for our products, especially from small and midsized machine builders.”
