Service Update

We are operational today and continue to take orders via the website 24 hours a day, 7 days per week, 365 days per year. Our Customer Service teams are available from 7.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday for telephone, live chat and email for orders and enquiries. Please access our support pages for further help and assistance.

Our online order cut off time is 8.30pm Mon-Fri. Any orders placed after 8.30pm on a Friday will now be dispatched the following Monday. We may not be able to deliver to our usual high service levels on all orders. A small number of customers may experience a slight delay in receiving their products because our carriers are seeing impacts on their ability to maintain their service levels. We apologise in advance for these isolated incidents and are working with our carriers to minimise the reduction in the service we can offer.

Our RS Local branches remain open, however they only offer a click and collect service from 8.00am – 4.30pm. You can click, email or phone your order as usual. Unfortunately, due to social distancing rules, you will not be allowed inside the branch. When you arrive to collect your order please follow the instructions on the door of the branch and one of our on-site staff will assist you. Our custom order services for kitting and consolidated delivery also remain in operation.

3D Printing Farm

Our 3D printing farm in Corby delivered the first 250 visors last week, to the National 3D Printing Society. They will now distribute these to front line healthcare workers around the UK. We recently added to our 3D printing farm when 2 RS colleagues kindly donated their personal 3D printers to help the fight against COVID-19.

Working together we have the same goal; to keep frontline staff, health workers and patients safe. The N3DPS has a Just Giving page for any donations to help towards these costs.

We are proud to have donated 400kg of PLA filament to the National 3D Printing Society (N3DPS) as part of a new partnership between N3DPS, RS Components and DesignSpark. This donation will produce up to 20,000 visor frames for frontline medical workers.

The N3DPS is a non-profit social enterprise who are donating 3D printer filament. Their distribution network ensures the community produced PPE is sanitised and safely delivered to those who need it.
