Manufacturing Industry Hub

Manufacturing is a vital part of the Australian economy. It is Australia’s seventh-largest industry for employment and sixth largest for output. More recently, the industry also played a critical role in supporting the COVID-19 health response, with Australian manufacturers quickly pivoting to produce and deliver Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and essential medical equipment as global supply chains were impacted and shortages transpired across the globe.

RS Components has been serving the needs of the Australian Manufacturing Sectors for decades. Discover our specialist products and solutions to support the Australian manufacturing businesses.

See our NEW Industrial Manufacturing Brochure for an overview of how we can support your business.
