29 June 2022 News

Arrow Electronics announced that it has opened a new, state-of-the-art primary distribution centre (PDC) in Venlo, the Netherlands. The PDC is the key hub serving all customers of Arrow’s electronics components business in Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA). It is one of the company’s largest warehouses worldwide and replaces its existing facilities in the region, providing increased capacity for future growth.

Arrow has invested in the latest logistics technology and infrastructure to help customers and suppliers achieve better time-to-market, as well as quality and service enhancements. Emphasis has been placed on helping ensure not only current, but also future requirements are met regarding physical and virtual security, business continuity and business processes.

The PDC will support a broad range of technologies that Arrow offers its customers in EMEA regions. These include semiconductors, passive and electromechanical components and connectors, embedded solutions and component programming.

“We are excited to embark on this new facility in Europe,” said Chuck Kostalnick, senior vice president and chief supply chain officer, Arrow Electronics. “Arrow is committed to the Venlo area and our team of highly skilled employees in the region. This project gives us the opportunity to develop the already excellent services offered to our customers and suppliers, support Arrow’s business growth in various segments, enhance the working conditions for our team, and provide the flexibility to adapt according to future needs.”

In line with Arrow’s goal to continually improve its environmental performance and foster a culture of environmental engagement, the PDC is designed to use the latest energy-efficient technologies, maximising resource reuse and minimising waste. It has achieved an excellent rating according to BREEAM (Building Research Establishment Environmental Assessment Method), a sustainability assessment method used to plan infrastructure and buildings, as well as gaining a host of other horizontal and vertical sector certifications.
