Electronics and computing products for makers and hobbyists

11 November 2016

RS Components signed a distribution agreement with Adafruit Industries, a leader in open-source hardware, tools, equipment and electronics for makers and hobbyists.

Building on the existing relationship between RS and Adafruit, the agreement will enable customers anywhere in the world to purchase directly from the largest selection of Adafruit products available from any global distributor.

While RS currently stocks a number of Adafruit products, the agreement enables a considerable expansion of the portfolio to include the entire line up of current products including Adafruit’s top-selling boards and accessories for Raspberry Pi and Arduino. 

“Adafruit is a well-respected provider of maker and hobbyist products aimed at a highly diverse range of ages and skills,” said Rob Maycroft, Global Product Manager at RS. “This is very important to our growing user base of students and innovators. Adafruit’s high quality and carefully selected devices and tools will definitely enhance the selection of products RS is able to offer to the maker community.” 

“RS has a great reputation for high standards of service and world-class logistics,” said Limor "Ladyada" Fried, founder and engineer at Adafruit Industries. “This global agreement with RS will help us extend our reach to ensure that engineers, developers and makers across the world have fast and easy access to our electronics and more.”
