Rockwell Automation has signed a new sales partnership agreement with RS Components. Having worked together successfully in the British market, this cooperation is now being extended to Germany.

“With our focus on small and medium quantities, we address a specific market segment and are looking forward to working with Rockwell Automation to develop the German market further,” comments Hans-Martin Hörning, Regional Category Manager EMEA Automation Control at RS Components. “Rockwell Automation’s safety components, low voltage equipment and compact drive technology – especially the Micro800, its tailored and flexible nano and micro control system range – are an ideal complement to our portfolio.”

Marcel Woiton, sales director Germany, Rockwell Automation, said: “RS Components will make a significant contribution to meeting the increasing demand for our products, especially from small and midsized machine builders.”
