RS Components exhibits at MTE Botswana

June 2018 News

RS Components showcased a range of industrial products and new technologies at the Mining and Technical Exhibitions (MTE) in Botswana from 16 to 20 April. The company also recently launched its Africa website, www.rs-online.africa, geared to meet the requirements of a growing continent with demand from various industries such as manufacturing, mining, automotive, utilities, electronics and industrial IoT.

“Customers in Africa had access to our products prior to the website, however there were long lead times and higher freight costs depending on the customer’s location,” said Brian Andrew, MD of RS South Africa. “With the new website, customers receive their products much faster and can pay online via credit card. This opens the door for more markets in sub-Saharan Africa to easily access products through our e-commerce platform. So much is happening in Africa and we want to make sure that our engineers, makers and maintenance professionals have access to the widest range of quality products and the latest technologies in order to achieve their goals and to develop the products and solutions of the future. The rest of the world has easy access to these goods, now so do we.”

RS product catalogues are available at http://bit.ly/RSGuides
