Sydney Trains and RS Components, a leading distributor of electrical and mechanical components, have announced a seven-year supply contract.

The partnership will see RS Components provide solutions from leading brands for Australia’s largest public transport network, including areas such as automation and control, test equipment, tools, site safety and consumables.

In addition to its 175 stations that service over 1.3 million commuters daily, Sydney Trains operates the Rail Operations Centre and Depots, responsible for the maintenance of trains, assets including tracks, signals and overhead wiring, along with a large proportion of the infrastructure used by NSW TrainLink.

RS Components head of corporate accounts Scott Philbrook says using local stock holding to service the immediate needs of Sydney Trains puts RS ahead.

“Our digital capability provides site users easy access to a global network of suppliers to suit the needs of the rail industry which is second to none in Australia,” he says.

“Our stock holding and understanding of the entire industry has helped many in this space.”

RS Components has implemented complementary value-added services to support the rail sector, including Product Plus for sourcing and the Stockee Smart Shelf inventory management system, which created solutions for other rail MRO businesses in Australia.
