RS Components Garners Tektronix "Business Excellence Award" for Outstanding Growth in 2012

Double-digit growth on sales of Tektronix products from RS helps boost manufacturer's business performance in Europe

OXFORD, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - April 15, 2013) - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, has collected the award for 'Outstanding Growth in 2012' from Tektronix, a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation.

Tektronix handed out this award for excellence to RS in recognition of the distributor's outstanding contribution to the company's sales growth in Europe over the past twelve months. Notably, RS increased its sales of Tektronix products in 2012 by nearly 20% - an impressive result during a challenging year for many European economies and the test & measurement market.

A substantial portion of this success is attributable to the combined efforts of various RS teams across Europe in optimising inventory levels of the most popular Tektronix lines requested by customers throughout the region, in addition to the prompt introduction of new products released by the manufacturer. The comprehensive range of Tektronix products available direct from RS stock for same-day despatch includes: oscilloscopes, signal generators, digital multimeters, frequency counters and timers, DC power supplies, probes, accessories, and test software.

Presenting the award, Emanuela Speranza, Senior VP, Tektronix, said, "RS has achieved phenomenal sales results in Europe for our product line over the past year; all credit to their teams who have worked hard to enhance the offer to customers. Engineers need quick access to tools for design validation, and with RS they are assured of a fast, easy route to source and purchase the appropriate products from our range to support their design needs. This award is well-deserved indeed."

Valérie Ramon, Global Head of Electrical, Test & Measurement, RS Components, added, "We are continually investing in methods to ease the find and buy experience for our customers. This recognition from Tektronix is an endorsement of the success we have achieved through initiatives such as our new product introduction programme, which ensures that engineers have access to the latest technologies available. We are very pleased that our efforts have delivered such positive results for Tektronix."
