Arrow ECS A/NZ has released a list of things that they would like the channel to know about them as a distribution company.

Previously known as Distribution Central, it hasn’t been that long since the company was acquired by Arrow ECS (2016, to be precise) but a lot has changed since then.

Here are five interesting facts about Arrow ECS A/NZ:

1. IoT innovators

Arrow ECS A/NZ say they are passionate about advanced and emerging technologies, particularly those that have the power to transform the way we live.

3. Serious about the environment

When it generates an invoice, the company donates to Carbon Neutral: a not-for-profit Australian organisation.

“Through our donations, Carbon Neutral has planted more than 164,282 native trees. This equates to offsetting an estimated 27,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents (or taking 7800 cars off the road for a year).”
