LONDON Arrow and TT electronics, the parent company of BI Technologies and Welwyn Components, have signed a franchise distribution agreement under which Arrow will now handle the full BI Technologies and Welwyn Components product portfolio throughout northern Europe.
The agreement sees Arrow stocking and supporting the full range of BI Technologies and Welwyn Components passive components in Denmark, Finland, Norway, Sweden, the UK and Ireland, and the Baltic States. The two TT electronics subsidiaries provide a variety of passive devices including power, pulse, fusible, precision and other specialist resistors, trimming and precision potentiometers, R & RC networks, transformers and inductors.
Kevin Bottomley, distribution manager at Welwyn Components, said “To date Welwyn Components have enjoyed great success working with Arrow in the UK and Ireland. Based on this success, and the increased focus that Arrow is placing on stocking and supporting niche passive component technologies, we believe that the new agreement covering the full BI Technologies and Welwyn Components product ranges will help us to rapidly grow our share of the automotive, aerospace/defence, communications, industrial, consumer and lighting markets across northern Europe.”
