The agreement between Rutronik and Omron began in 1998 and was expanded to cover all of Europe in 2009. "In the first year of our pan-European cooperation, Rutronik has exceeded all our expectations, recording growth which is unparalleled in our distribution network," explains Alex Grout, Omron European Distribution Manager. "The reason for this success is due to Rutronik's expert representation of our entire product range. As a result, we have become an important supplier for Rutronik and Rutronik an important distributor for us – in other words, a close and reliable partnership."
Omron's product range comprises switches, connectors, sensors and relays. They are used primarily in building automation, energy control, home appliances, industrial controllers and telecommunications as well as in numerous other sectors. Particularly exceptional are Omron's micro switches in extremely small installation sizes and the large selection of lever switch and terminating plug options. "Omron components are renowned worldwide for their high quality," explains Volker Buchmann, Marketing Director Electromechanical Components at Rutronik. "This makes Omron an important partner, characterised by superb innovation and absolute reliability when it comes to delivery."
