Arrow Electronics is a global provider of products, services, and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and computer products.

The company serves a variety of markets, including telecommunications, information systems, automotive and transportation, medical and life sciences, industrial equipment, and consumer electronics. 

Arrow is a supply channel partner for over 900 suppliers and 125,000 original equipment manufacturers, contract manufacturers, and commercial customers through a global network of more than 310 locations in 51 countries and territories.

Arrow provides specialized services and expertise at each stage of a product's life cycle, accelerating and simplifying the journey from concept to market. Each product's journey begins with the technology innovations of Arrow's suppliers who introduce thousands of new components and computer products each month. Arrow's customers use that technology to design and manufacture products from home security systems to global telecommunications networks.

In 2009, the company reported sales of $14.6 billion and net income of $123.5 million.


Arrow began as a retail electronics store on New York City's Radio Row in 1935. Arrow went public in 1961 with two retail stores and an electronics distribution business.

Arrow would discontinue its retail division in 1976, concentrating exclusively on growing the distribution and refining business. By 1979, Arrow would be listed on the NYSE. The same year, Arrow acquires Cramer Electronics, making the company a national coast-to-coast distributor for the first time


Arrow offers competitive financial compensation, including performance based compensation plans, a stock ownership plan, and comprehensive benefits coverage, including:

- Medical, dental, vision, life, disability, and other insurance offerings
- Paid vacation, holidays, personal, and sick days
- 401K with company matching and employee stock ownership plan
