The HARTING Technology Group and Arrow Electronics expand their global partnership. A correlating agreement was signed on Thursday at the trade fair “electronica” in Munich.
Arrow Electronics has been a HARTING distributor in North America for 22 years.
Over that time span, Arrow has grown to be one of the largest distributors of HARTING products in North America, posting record sales in 2015 and 2016.
In order to carry this momentum forward, HARTING and Arrow have agreed to expand their partnership to include EMEA and APAC. Both companies expressed their confidence that this expanded partnership will help them meet their aggressive global revenue targets.
“We are using this wide-ranging sales cooperation to boost our international distribution network consisting of our own subsidiaries and external distribution partners,” says Jon DeSouza, President and CEO HARTING Inc. of North America. “This brings us even closer to our customers and their requirements,” emphasized Edgar-Peter Düning, Managing Director of HARTING Electric.
