Supporting engineers for 80 years

At RS, we’ve been supporting the imagination of engineers for 80 years, bringing innovative products that inspire new solutions to tomorrow’s challenges. As a distributor, we have strived to be innovative, adapting to change, both in terms of the products we supply and the way in which these are presented and delivered.

RS has a fascinating heritage dating back to 1937 in the UK. Initially RadioSpares, RS moved into electronic components in 1954, and today has operating companies in 30 countries across Europe, North America and Asia. The business is a familiar name in many markets, as the place where engineers can buy virtually anything they need, with no minimum order and next day delivery.

Today, we not only inspire and nurture future engineers, we are also actively re-engaging with our customers and suppliers by taking and acting on their feedback. With an increased focus on innovation, broader service offerings, we are making amazing things happen, yet keeping things simple. Our unique offering is our heritage- to continue to focus on excelling at the basics. This is combined with a continued passion for innovation, keeping abreast of new technologies to meet changing customer needs, enhanced with a respected approach to corporate responsibility.

From helping students with their projects to championing innovation, see how we’re supporting the next generation of engineers to make their mark in a world that never stands still.
