RS and OK join on static control
Richard Wilson RS Components and OK Industries have unveiled a joint ESD and static control marketing programme branded Ground Zero. “It offers the technical expertise of OK allied to the fast service of RS Components,” commented Rob Haslett, v-p Europe for OK Industries. The two companies have produced a joint catalogue which contains nearly 500 static control lines, including 94 new items. They will have both OK and RS part numbers. The catalogue will be distributed to specifically targeted buyers of anti-static products. Two separate price lists will be included and customers will be directed to OK for orders over 25 items and to RS for any quantity under that figure. That does not stop companies buying from a preferred source. “We can’t put down restrictions like that or the deal will fall at the first hurdle,” commented RS Group general manager, Jerry Vaughan. RS looks set to undertake more such deals in specific product areas. “Let’s just say this deal will not be lonely for very long,” commented Jerry Vaughan.
