Rutronik and Jauch Quartz America Inc. cooperate in North America
Rutronik and Jauch Quartz America Inc. have entered into a distribution agreement for North America. The agreement is effective immediately and applies to the entire Jauch product range.
In addition to various types of batteries (such as lithium, nickel-metal hydride, lead, and alkaline batteries), Jauch Quartz also manufactures frequency control components such as quartz crystals, quartz oscillators, and MEMS oscillators for a large variety of applications.
Besides a wide range of products, Jauch offers its customers personalized technical support, such as an analysis to identify defects in the customer’s circuitry. Fast delivery thanks to global logistics rounds out the company’s offering, which represents an attractive complete solution for customers.
