London, UK, 31 May 2018:

RS Components (RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc (LSE:ECM), a global multi-channel distributor, has announced a special promotion on a range of Facom limited-edition tools and accessories as part of the centennial celebrations for the well-known French brand.

Now part of Stanley Black and Decker, the Facom brand began in 1918 and sits at the high end of the market, targeting tradespeople and maintenance professionals in the construction and other industrial sectors. The Facom limited-edition products will be available to the market from RS while stocks last.

The 100-year anniversary limited-edition tools and accessories on offer include: long-nose clamp pliers; a 38-piece socket and bit set; a 12-piece spanner set; a nine-piece hex-key set; a 29-piece toolset; a hacksaw; a stainless-steel knife; a six-drawer tool trolley; and a three-drawer ‘ToughSystem’ storage module.

In addition, as part of the special promotion, RS will be holding a competition on its engineering community site – DesignSpark – where it will be giving away some of these limited-edition Facom products.

“Customers know exactly what to expect from Facom tools,” said Rashdeep Kelf, Senior Product Marketing Manager at RS. “From the creation of the Facom 101 adjustable spanner in the early days of post-war France to its wide portfolio of industrial tools available today, Facom has built up a reputation for delivering unequalled levels of quality and reliability to engineering professionals.”
