RS Components showcases a range of products and the latest technologies at the Mining and Technical Exhibitions in Botswana
Global distributor for engineers launches Africa website, giving markets access to over 500 000 products across 2500 global brands
Johannesburg, South Africa, 12 April, 2018 – RS Components the global distributor for engineers, buyers and maintenance professionals will be at the Mining and Technical Exhibitions (MTE) in Botswana from the 16-20 April 2018, exhibiting a range of industrial products and the latest technologies for mining.
RS Components 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. With the new website customers receive their products much quicker 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,” Brian Andrew MD of RS South Africa.
