NKK Switches-Arrow Electronics ink expanded franchise agreement
Scottsdale, AZ —-NKK Switches has expanded its distribution agreement with Arrow Electronics so that Arrow has become one of the two globally franchised distributors supplying NKK products. The agreement extends and enhances the North and South American distribution-partnership that NKK and Arrow first established in 2001. NKK’s growth in the Americas and Arrow’s pan-Asian and European strength, combined with Arrow’s technical resources and high levels of market penetration, prompted the agreement.
Worldwide, Arrow has over 300 sales facilities and 20 distribution centers employing over 11,000 who service some 150,000 customers.
