RS Components (RS), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products and the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), has been awarded the 2010 Catalogue Distributor Award Trophy by Traco Electronics AG in recognition of outstanding sales performance in TRACOPOWER power supplies. The company's sales of TRACOPOWER products grew 37% over those in 2009. RS has stocked TRACOPOWER power supplies for two decades but last year extended the range and created a dedicated microsite for the AC/DC and DC/DC power conversion products. Here, customers can find products quickly and easily, along with comprehensive technical documentation, including application notes. Commenting on the award, Traco's managing director, Markus Dalla Monta said, "RS Components' performance is exemplary in making it easy for customers to find, design-in and buy electronic components and sub-assemblies such as power supplies. We congratulate them on their success with our products in 2010 and look forward to continuing this fruitful partnership for many years to come." Valérie Ramon, category business manager at RS, added, "TRACOPOWER represents the best of Swiss electronics innovation and engineering. The power supplies are acknowledged as highly reliable products that are competitive in both performance and price, so it's a pleasure to give them the full support of our technical, sales and marketing teams.
