Vicor extends Arrow Electronics distribution agreement across Europe

February 19, 2016 //By Paul Buckley
Arrow Electronics has extended Vicor's distribution franchise agreement to cover a further 16 European countries.

Arrow previously worked with Vicor in the UK and Italy only. The extension follows a successful year during which Arrow grew its business with the Vicor product line and identified a significant number of new project opportunities.

Vicor designs and manufactures innovative, high performance modular power components. The company complements its extensive range of power conversion and power distribution products with significant application development expertise. It has a particular focus on solutions for performance-critical applications in areas such as industrial equipment and automation, telecoms and network infrastructure and transportation.

In 2015 Arrow created a specialist European power solutions team within its passives and electromechanical division. The investment and resources dedicated to the team make it one of Europe’s largest electronic distribution organisations for power products and enable it to offer configuration, testing and value-added services alongside standard products.

The Vicor agreement with Arrow in Europe now covers Austria, Germany, Switzerland, UK, Italy, Spain, Portugal, France, Belgium, Luxemburg, The Netherlands, Ireland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, Greece and Turkey.
