Supply management is a complicated topic. Our Connected Thinking website provides exclusive insight and thought-leadership on a range of topics around Indirect procurement and MRO supplies to help professionals drive procurement efficiencies in their organization.


RS Components' three-year partnership with The Washing Machine Project aims to improve the lives of 100,000 people worldwide. Around 70% of the world’s population does not have access to an electric washing machine, forcing many girls and women to handwash clothes for hours in rivers and buckets, resulting in physical pain and preventing the chance of an education. The Washing Machine Project has developed an affordable, off-grid, manual crank washing machine which reduces time spent handwashing and requires 50% less water. Our support for this innovative, humanitarian cause extends to encouraging our people, customers and suppliers to contribute through fundraising and volunteering activities.
