In 2010, Rutronik was able to record the highest increase in sales of Telit GSM products in the DACH region, more than doubling its turnover. Telit believes one reason for this success to be the acquisition of an extraordinarily high number of new customers. "The expertise of the Rutronik Wireless Team has also made a significant contribution to this dramatic increase," explains Felix Marchal, Global VP Sales at Telit. "After all, our products are purely design-in products which cannot be sold without the benefit of sound advice and support. This is why we work so closely with Rutronik in this area." Telit presented the award to Rutronik at its international sales and distributor conference in Kitzbühel.
Rutronik has been Telit's franchise partner throughout most of Europe since 2006. The GSM, UMTS, HSPA, CDMA, GPS, ZigBee and Wireless M-Bus modules as well as the proprietary short-range radio modules are aimed primarily at industrial customers, particularly for telemetry applications as well as the automotive market. "As Telit not only develops the modules but also the internal software stacks itself, the products always have a technical edge over the competition," says Lars Mistander, Head of the Wireless Competence Centre at Rutronik. "In addition, there are useful additional functions, which our customers really value, as well as high quality and absolute reliability. This makes Telit one of our most important partners and we are absolutely delighted that our commitment, both to our customers and to our supplier Telit, has been formally honoured."
