Production Packaging

Packaging Solutions at RS

Flexible purchasing options to suit your needs.

You can now purchase multiple quantities of products either individually, packaged to suit your specific needs or in the original manufacturer packaging.

What does this mean for me?
We provide access to a broad range of competitively priced products from resistors and ICs to fasteners and crimps, to meet your production needs, packaged and ready for insertion into your machinery.

Original manufacturer packaging: a full reel, tube, tray or box supplied in the original packaging as we receive it from the manufacturer. This can be more cost effective than buying individual items as you'll always get our best price.

Production packing: if you need a specific number of components for samples, prototypes or small batch production, we can supply them individually or packaged ready for insertion into your pick and place machinery.

How does it help me?

Save money: because it gives you the flexibility to buy what you need at our best price.

Fast turnaround: we can have them with you next day for immediate use.

Plenty of choice: we're continually adding new products to this range.
