Rutronik has been in a sales partnership with Samsung Electro-Mechanics since 1996, with the franchise encompassing all of Europe and Greater China (China, Hong Kong, Taiwan) as well as off-shore support in North America. The distributor markets the manufacturer's full range of passive components, focusing on MLCC and tantalum Capacitors. "Samsung Electro-Mechanics is one of the most significant and largest manufacturers in the passive segment and is therefore one of our most important partners. Other advantages include the most competitive and high-quality components and the large stocks held by Samsung Electro-Mechanics. This is why we are very pleased about this award, which provides us with added motivation to carry on performing the way we do," said Markus Balke, Senior Marketing Manager Ceramic Capacitors at Rutronik.
The "Best Distributor of the Year" Award is presented each year to the distributor achieving the highest sales. With a year-on-year increase in sales of 13 %, exceeding the industry average, Rutronik was able to claim the award for itself in 2014. "The growth in sales really exceeded our expectations. With the 'Best Distributor of the Year' Award, we would like to take this opportunity to thank Rutronik for the outstanding development and our partnership built on trust," remarked Stephan Daeumer, Sales Manager EMEA of Samsung Electro-Mechanics.
