Johannesburg, South Africa, 19 October, 2017 - RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced a significant expansion of its portfolio for power transmission applications with the addition of components from two leading companies – Schaeffler and Timken – which are among the world’s biggest manufacturers of bearings and other components for deployment in power transmission systems.
The products now available from RS include ball bearings, roller bearings, sprockets, belts, pulleys, and many other parts necessary to build up or maintain different kinds of motion-control applications.

It is proven that departments traditionally spend 80% of their time sourcing products that account for only 20% of their total procurement spend. RS is focussed on reducing the customers “total cost of product ownership” by reducing the need to make multiple calls to various companies to source products, reducing supplier related administration and allowing for the amalgamation as well as consolidation of supplier bases. Through this process, procurement efficiency is improved and time is freed up to concentrate on the more important business decisions.
