Best Distributor 2014: Rutronik Receives Award from Samwha
Ispringen (Germany), November 27, 2014 – Rutronik Elektronische
Bauelemente GmbH has been awarded the title of “Best Distributor” for
this year by Samwha. By presenting this award, the manufacturer of
electrolytic capacitors is honoring not only the highest turnover, but
also many years of partnership with Rutronik. The companies have
already been working together across Europe since the early 1990s and
across the world since 2003.
Samwha is one of the leading manufacturers of electrolytic capacitors (ecaps) and Rutronik’s primary partner in this sector. Rutronik supplies its
customers with over 300 million e-caps from Samwha every year.
“Distribution is an extremely important sales channel for Samwha, and by far
the largest segment of our European network is allotted to Rutronik”,
explained Kwang-Hyun Park, Managing Director at Samwha Europe. “It is the
product of the above-average commitment of the Rutronik Passive team,
which offers customers optimal support. As such, it is our pleasure to be able
to reward this with the “Best Distributor 2014” award.”
In addition to electrolytic capacitors, Samwha also develops and produces
multilayer ceramic capacitors (MLCC), which have also featured in the
Rutronik product portfolio since 2014. The main target markets of the
components are Industrial and Consumer, e.g. home appliance. “The
Samwha products offer outstanding value for money. The roadmap shows us
that we have the right partner at our side in Samwha for being able to offer
our customers innovative products well into the future”, said Stefan Sutalo,
Marketing Director Passive Components at Rutronik.
