Yageo honours Rutronik
It’s the culmination of a highly successful partnership – in recognition of generating the highest sales of all of Taiwanese manufacturer Yageo’s distributors worldwide, the company has presented Rutronik with its “Global Distributor of the Year 2017” award.
“Rutronik is our solution supplier and provides its customers with comprehensive and professional service from a single source. This is precisely why we have worked with Rutronik for over 30 years in an extremely trusting and successful relationship,” explained Roger Cheng, Sales Director at Yageo. The award was presented during the EDS summit in Las Vegas in mid-May.
A Relationship Built on Trust
Yageo’s product range includes passive components such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, and wireless and automotive components. Rutronik’s partnership with the Taiwanese manufacturer dates back to the 1980s and has grown steadily ever since. Markus Krieg, Managing Director Marketing at Rutronik, is equally pleased about receiving this accolade: “This award is a wonderful confirmation of our joint strategy and long-term partnership. We are positive that our work together will continue to be extremely successful in the future.”
