Rutronik and Fischer Elektronik to cooperate worldwide

Strong partners for the global distribution of electromechanical components: Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH and Fischer Elektronik GmbH & Co. KG have entered into a distribution agreement. From now on, customers will be able to obtain the products manufactured by the expert in heat sinks and cases from Rutronik.

Fischer Elektronik is one of Europe’s market leaders in the manufacture of extruded heat sinks, heat sinks for processors and LEDs, board level heat sinks, cooling aggregates, accessories for electronic components, cases, 19-inch construction systems, sockets, PCB connectors and accessories, IDC connectors, D-Sub connectors, brackets, and optoelectronics.

The target markets for the manufacturer’s products are industrial and automotive applications, medical technology, measurement and control technology, and LED lighting technology. Fischer Elektronik is based in Luedenscheid, North-Rhine Westphalia, employing 400 people and exporting more than 35 percent of its products. The company continues to grow steadily and manufactures a high percentage of its products internally. It is committed to technical support that is both competent and flexible in the form of application-related advice. It also undertakes development work and carries out thermal in-house simulations.

As a result of the cooperation with Rutronik, Fischer Elektronik expects to be able to give customers the best possible support with their applications – from development to series production – as well as work together to gain additional market shares and generate growth. “In Rutronik, we have been able to secure a major distribution partner with market experience. In turn, by working alongside Fischer Elektronik, Rutronik has added a very well-known brand in the field of electromechanical components to its program. We are convinced that this cooperation will be a success,” says Patrick. W. Fischer, owner-manager of Fischer Elektronik.

Guenter Wolfensberger, Product Marketing Director at Rutronik, explains: “The market situation is very positive thanks to the high international profile of Fischer Elektronik. Today’s rapid development of electronic components – featuring ever increasing power density combined with smaller packing density – demands a dynamic and efficient approach to selecting suitable heat dissipation concepts, cases, and connectors. Fischer’s product portfolio is the largest standard program in the industry and offers innovative standard products as well as customer-specific solutions that help developers to master these challenges when combined with the company’s long-standing experience as market leader.”
