Fairchild Semiconductor (NYSE: FCS), a leading global supplier of high performance power and mobile products, announced an expansion of its distribution agreement with RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), a leading high-service distributor of electronics and maintenance products.

The expanded agreement recognizes RS Components as an authorized reseller of Fairchild products and is intended to enable an improved customer purchasing experience of Fairchild’s broad portfolio of mobile, energy-efficient power analog, power discrete and optoelectronic solutions.

“RS Components has proven to be a highly professional distributor with an unsurpassed reputation for service excellence,” said Mark Norman, senior vice president, worldwide regional sales, marketing and distribution. “Their commitment to support Fairchild will bring multiple benefits to the supply chain, providing our customers with more solution offerings which are readily available to ship to any location.”
