Online-Shop up and running for 23 years
Reichelt’s history of success dates back to the year 1969, when the Reichelt couple started selling electric components. Ever since, both private and business clients trust the quality of the Reichelt products. Now, the range comprises 110’000 products. In 1996, the 40 employees at the time were relocated from Wilhelmshaven to Sande, where Reichelt built a modern logistics center on a greenfield site. In the same year, Reichelt launched the first Online-Shop – becoming one of the first companies in Germany to do so.
Growth thanks to international expansion
Since the acquisition by Datwyler Group in 2010, Reichelt has been focusing even more on business customers and the expansion in new European markets. Due to online shops and call center services in local languages, Reichelt has recorded an encouraging growth in recent years and employs 280 employees in the year of the anniversary. The high level of customer satisfaction is proven by the “Distributor of the year 2018” award, voted for by the readers of the Elektronik trade magazine.
