Graeme Dorkings, vice president of global sales for AVX, said: "We are pleased to expand our relationship with Electrocomponents plc, especially RS Components. For many years, RS has offered a limited range of AVX products, but we have been working hard to expand our product portfolio and have an exciting further growth plan for our new focus products."
