Arrow Electronics and Elo Touch Solutions have signed an agreement under which Arrow will distribute the Elo portfolio of industry-leading touchscreen components throughout Europe, Middle East and Africa. The new line will be the responsibility of Arrow’s OEM Computing Solutions business that specialises in system-level solutions.
Elo Touch Solutions’ products are based on touch technologies, such as surface acoustic wave, projected capacitive, and five-wire resistive, which find uses in retail, medical, transportation and, increasingly, industrial applications.
Arrow brings design engineering, global manufacturing, supply-chain management and logistics services together under one roof. Its expertise and partnerships with industry-leading suppliers of computing platforms, memory and storage, application and operating system software and displays enable Arrow to support OEMs throughout all stages of the product lifecycle.
“Both Arrow and Elo bring something unique to the table,” said Mark Levy, director of European sales at Elo Touch Solutions. “We are delighted to have teamed up with Arrow, maximising the excellent customer relationships they have established within the industrial marketplace.”
“Elo Touch Solutions has an extensive range of touch solutions based on a wide variety of technologies,” said Amir Mobayen, vice president of Arrow OEM Computing Solutions in EMEA. “Elo’s expertise, garnered during its 40-year history, enables Elo to match the right solution with each situation – which aligns with Arrow’s approach to its customers.”
