Each year, JAE honors a distributor who has been particularly convincing in the past fiscal year of the Japanese manufacturer in the EMEA region. The evaluation is based on various individual categories in which both hard and soft factors are considered. Rutronik now received the „EMEA Distributor of the Year“ award for 2020. The company achieved the top position in several individual categories. So Rutronik performed impressively in the areas of Preferred Distributor, Satisfaction, Promotion & Communication, Sales, Technical, Supply, and POS and won the award.
„We are the largest distributor of JAE products, so this award means a lot to us. Especially when you consider how many individual categories we took the first place. This shows that we have expertise in many areas and offer real added value. The cooperation is very trusting and focused not only on serving existing customers but also on inspiring new customers for JAE‘s innovative products and opening up new markets. That we are achieving this is also due to the large number of successful designs with the AX01 and DX07 product series, which offer customers many advantages in the field of connectors. Together, we are creating a unique product and service portfolio,“ explains Dr. Jakob Käpplinger, Director Product Marketing Electromechanical Components at Rutronik.
„Rutronik and JAE share a long and successful partnership for many decades. The award ‚EMEA Distributor of the Year 2020‘ is a recognition of Rutronik‘s exceptional sales and distribution success. The close cooperation makes it possible to successfully position both our established and our new, innovative products and technologies in existing as well as emerging markets. In this way, Rutronik supports us to retain customers in the long term and at the same time create new demand. This is what makes our partnership so successful,“ adds Erik Tröger, Senior Distribution Manager at JAE Europe.
