RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the world’s leading high-service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is celebrating 75 years in business. From humble beginnings in a small London garage in 1937, RS has grown into a successful multinational organisation by retaining its focus on high-service-level customer support while evolving into a multi-channel business with eCommerce at its heart, according to a statement.

Over the last 75 years, RS has transformed itself from a UK company into a global business. With direct operations in 30 countries and distributors in a further 37 markets, RS is the number one high-service distributor across Europe and the Asia Pacific region. The company’s 16 distribution centres located worldwide enable it to provide high service levels to over one million customers, according to a statement.

The company’s success is a direct result of its ability to embrace change, adapting to the needs of the market and its customers. Together with its broad product range of more than 550,000 products, including anything from rechargable batteries to ethernet cables and semiconductors, eCommerce has become a major driver of the company’s growth, allowing it to have a long-term, multi-channel relationship with its customers. Recently, RS has transformed its customers’ online experience with the introduction of eProcurement systems, a Live Chat service in 12 markets, electronics design tools and one of the most advanced transactional websites in the distribution sector,
