September 18, 2012 // By Paul Buckley
Fairchild Semiconductor is expanding the company’s distribution agreement with RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc , a high-service distributor of electronics and maintenance products.

The expanded agreement recognizes RS Components as an authorized reseller of Fairchild products and is intended to enable an improved customer purchasing experience of Fairchild’s broad portfolio of mobile, energy-efficient power analog, power discrete and optoelectronic solutions.

RS Components currently holds inventory of around 1,500 Fairchild parts, and recently added more than 400 new products. Further expansion of their inventory will eventually include the entire Fairchild product line and will be available from stock for same-day dispatch.

Fred Knowles, global head of product inventory at RS Components, commented, “This agreement is a strong endorsement of the successful partnership that has developed between our two companies. New product introductions are a primary focus for RS Components as we endeavor to ease the sourcing and purchasing experience for customers around the world, and this deal enables us to offer a breadth of products from a leading semiconductor manufacturer.”
