Integrated Arrow Electronics-Distribution Central offering expanded channel enablement
The integration of Arrow Electronics and Distribution Central’s operations has resulted in a more nimble business with an expanded channel enablement services portfolio.
That’s the message from Nick Verykios, head of Arrow’s ANZ enterprise computing solutions business, who says the integration has provided structural changes that enhance the company’s nimbleness and expand its channel enablement services portfolio, while strengthening its value proposition and vendor portfolio.
“It’s a unique mix of value over volume that puts us in a strong position to exceed our growth objectives without compromising on our legendary service delivery,” Verykios says.
Arrow acquired Distribution Central in March, with the integration of the two companies now completed.
Arrow’s vendor portfolio across Australia and New Zealand has also been expanded through the integration of the two companies.
Sean Kerins, president of Arrow’s global enterprise computing solutions business, says the integration brings together strong value-added go-to-market models, with a focus on delivering leading technology solutions and channel services.
“It’s great news for our employees, vendors and customers,” Kerins says.
The combined business is headquartered in St Leonards, NSW and has branch offices in Melbourne, Canberra, Brisbane, Perth, Auckland and Wellington.
All staff and roles have been retained.
Rebranding of the combined entity is expected to be complete by the end of this year.
