RS Components signs global deal with FCI Electronics
RS Components has signed a global distribution agreement with FCI Electronics Division to act as an authorised channel partner.
According to RS, the latest move follows a period of strategic cooperation between the two companies during which RS contributed substantially to the sales growth of the FCI connector range.
Since the two companies began their collaboration, RS has more than trebled its FCI inventory and now stocks over 1600 parts, including the Basics+ range of standard connectors for board-to-board and wire/cable-to-board applications.
RS' stocked range also features new introductions from FCI such as high-density D-sub connectors, and the Minitek horizontal surface-mount headers in the 2.00mm pitch board-to-board and wire-to-board product portfolio.
"This deal underpins our relationship with FCI, and creates a solid base from which to boost our FCI offering," said Chris Page, Global Offer Director, RS. "Customer choice is at the core of our business strategy, and by working in partnership with top suppliers like FCI we can ensure the best possible selection of products available on the market from a single source."
