RS Components promotes new Africa website in Zambia

November 2018 News

At the recent Mining & Technical Exhibitions event in Zambia, RS Components promoted its recently launched Africa website ( www.rsonline.africa) geared to meet the requirements of a growing continent with demand from various industries such as manufacturing, mining, automotive, utilities, electronics and the IIoT. “Customers in Africa had access to our products prior to the website, however there were long lead times and higher freight costs depending on location,” explained Brian Andrew, managing director of RS in South Africa. “Through the new website, customers will receive their orders much quicker and they can pay via credit card.”

Zambia is home to some of the world’s largest copper mines. Kalumbila mine (also known as Sentinel) is located in north-western Zambia with estimated reserves standing at 1 billion tonnes of ore. Also in the region is Kitwe, the hub of the Copperbelt that sprouted in the province over the last decade. It is also second largest city in Zambia and one of the most developed commercial and industrial areas in the nation. With the new RS Africa website, mines and other industrial businesses in Zambia will now have fast, convenient access to over 500 000 quality products and electronic components from 2500 global brands.
