RS Components signs up with Glenair as digital distribution partner

RS Components, a global multi-channel distributor, has signed an official contract to become a digital partner of the high-reliability interconnect manufacturer Glenair in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.

Glenair specialises in military qualified, industrial and commercial products for use in harsh environments. It makes a broad range of connectors, backshells, cable assemblies and accessories at its headquarters in Glendale, California, and at facilities in the UK and Italy, using the ISO 9001 process quality management system.

RS has been trading with Glenair for many years and currently stocks over 500 Glenair products, notably Micro-D and circular connectors aimed at the defence and industrial markets.

Eric Smith, Vice President of Interconnect and Emech at RS, commented: “At RS, we work closely with key manufacturers like Glenair to deliver the products engineers and contract manufacturers need, when and where they need them. This new contract strengthens the relationship between our two brands and allows RS to introduce the latest Glenair products promptly. We have new product announcements planned within the current financial year.”

Tony Birks, Managing Director of Glenair UK, said: “This new contract deepens our commitment to the outstanding digital distribution service offered by RS. Both new and existing Glenair customers will benefit from our even closer working relationship.”
