Tool Modules From RS Components Enhance Workplace for Industrial Engineering Professionals

New extensive portfolio of RS brand high-quality tools and cabinets target electricians, maintenance engineers and mechanics working in industrial environments

Taiwan, 18 June 2015:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), the global distributor for engineers, has announced an extensive new portfolio of high-quality RS brand tool modules that come without the premium brand price tag. These products offer a highly professional solution for electrical engineers, professional mechanics and maintenance engineers working in environments such as garages, workshops and factories. The range includes an extensive selection of toolset modules, making it exceptionally easy to populate a trolley type storage cabinet to suit individual user requirements.

There are 18 tool modules available in the new RS branded range with options such as a 39-piece screwdriver and bit set, 29-piece socket set and a 16-piece spanner set, as well as other modules including pliers, crimpers/strippers, files and hex keys among others. All the toolsets are stored in double-colour EVA-foam material modules and feature individual cut-outs for each tool, so it is easy to spot if a tool is missing.

Rounding out the portfolio are two new RS branded toolkits including: a 43-piece kit that comprises tools such as screwdrivers, pliers and spanners, as well as chisels, a hammer and a hacksaw; and a 31-piece electrician's toolkit that has a range of VDE 1000V insulated tools including pliers, a series of screwdrivers and a voltage tester.

All the tool modules in the RS brand range are supplied with a three-year warranty and are available via RS in the EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
