RS Components - largest catalogue distributor of components and parts
27 March 2002, News

RS Components has grown to become the largest catalogue distributor of electronic, electrical, mechanical, health and safety and test and measurement products and components. Its latest catalogue is a weighty, well-designed book which includes thousands of products designed to appeal to an increasingly broad range of industries and market segments. More than a simple product selector, the 'RS catalogue' is a complete, easy-to-use technical manual. Every item has a full colour photograph and is accompanied by comprehensive technical advice, specifications and unique order number.

Breaking the barrier of 55 500 products in catalogue and 120 000 on CD-ROM is a major milestone for an SA-based distribution business. Dedicated to a single purpose of service excellence, its commitment to satisfying customer needs is seen through the evolution of the RS catalogue.

RS says that its operating philosophy is perhaps best summed up with: "our purpose in life is to meet the needs of our customers with the widest range of products, delivered directly from stock and backed up by the best technical support anywhere in the world." To support this statement, technical specifications and data sheets are available for many RS products, and if not available in the catalogues, the RS helpline will find it for you.

RS Components performs a rigorous selection and testing process. Since it is not a manufacturer, it claims its advice and recommendations are totally impartial. A vast product knowledge allows its engineers to directly compare one manufacturer's product with another, adding even greater value to the RS range of selected products. RS says that before any product is admitted to its stockholding, it is meticulously evaluated by its experienced and skilled team of engineers based in the UK. The assessment is based on a product's suitability for its intended use, and its performance and value - and every product is guaranteed.

This evaluation process calls for an understanding of both the products' applications and the marketplace in which the customers operate. RS Components has a focused depth of understanding and offers an impressive service to clients.
