See Arrow Electronics’ 700,000-square-foot warehouse and distribution center in Reno and learn about its global impact during this Tech Wednesday.

A Fortune 500 company with 20,100 employees worldwide, Arrow Electronics guides innovation forward for more than 200,000 leading technology manufacturers and service providers. With 2018 sales of $30 billion, Arrow develops technology solutions that improve business and daily life.

The Reno location is one of its largest global distribution centers. It employs more than 1,000 people with more employees at its Stead value-added recovery operations. The South Reno warehouse on Maestro Drive services all Arrow’s major electronics component manufacturing clients. The Reno team also provides programming services, wherein engineers add logic or intelligence to semiconductors upon client request.

Arrow Electronics was founded in 1935 when a retail store named Arrow Radio opened on Cortlandt Street in the heart of lower Manhattan’s “Radio Row,” the birthplace of electronics distribution. Arrow Radio, established by Maurice (“Murray”) Goldberg, sold used radios and radio parts to retail customers.

Its Reno presence began in 1990 when Arrow opened a 180,000-square-foot warehouse on Spice Island Drive. Arrow has made several northern Nevada acquisitions including Intechtra in 2010 and Redemtech in 2012. Both companies were combined under one roof in Stead and are part of Arrow’s VAR group, which recovers valuable components from obsolete electronics equipment.

The Reno location also participates in many of Arrow’s global initiatives. One of these is the SAM project, which modified a Corvette Stingray to empower quadriplegic, former Indy Car race driver Sam Schmidt to drive again. Technology from the SAM project is now being used to help other disabled individuals gain more access to driving and other movements. Another, We Care Solar, a nonprofit that teamed with Arrow to ensure women can give birth in well-lit health facilities and to equip medical providers with the power to save lives.

Learn more about Arrow’s facilities, impacts and advancements in technology during this Tech Wednesday event.
