Rutronik has been appointed by Molex to distribute its complete product range in the UK and Ireland. The move enables Rutronik to extend its offering with one of the foremost interconnection portfolios and also with antennas and RF solutions that increasingly play a part in the delivery of advanced IoT solutions. A major factor in Molex’s decision was Rutronik’s strong design and field application engineering capabilities.
Rutronik has blazed a trail, supporting established and emerging companies in bringing their designs to market. The addition of Molex’s comprehensive range of connectivity and related products is complementary to the existing Rutronik line card and will provide customers with access to even more focused design and purchasing support.
Commenting on the agreement, Darren Fairs, regional distribution sales manager Northern Europe, Molex said: “We have been extremely impressed with Rutronik’s technical and sales teams in the UK and Ireland. Their market knowledge and contacts extend across the established landscape and into many new and exciting companies who can benefit from the Molex product line. In addition, Rutronik’s technical team is well qualified to support customers through the design and development process.”
Markus Krieg, managing director marketing, Rutronik added: “Molex is a major global player and its range complements our existing portfolio in the UK perfectly. As we work with more companies to help them bring their IoT products to market, the ability to add further wired and wireless interconnection solutions to our existing technology offerings will prove invaluable.”
Rutronik has the Molex franchise in UK and Ireland starting 1stApril 2018. This will build on the existing strong relationship between the companies elsewhere in Europe.
