Altron Arrow celebrates 25 years of excellence

Altron Arrow, a leading supplier of electronics components and enterprise computing solutions, recently celebrated its 25th birthday in style with a luxurious event at its offices in Jet Park, Johannesburg.

The event saw current and former employees, customers, and suppliers all reflecting on the growth and successes the company has achieved on the journey to this milestone birthday celebration.

Renato Martins, Altron Arrow’s managing director; Jörg Strughold, president of Arrow Electronics Global components EMEA; and Werner Kapp, Altron’s CEO, took the guests through the history of the company and its achievements over the past quarter century.

“In our continuous drive to be there when it matters, we celebrate our last 25 years as a key electronics enabler – providing smart thinking, impactful innovations, and working partnerships to our amazing customers and suppliers,” said Martins.

“The partnership between Arrow and Alton has been a remarkable journey over these 25 years,” said Strughold, who reminisced about various highlights. These included moving into the company offices in 1998, the number of franchises added throughout the years, and the expansion of the business into Enterprise Computing Solution, all while growing the business, solving customer and supplier challenges, and guiding innovation forward.

“Megatrends drive our doing! We believe in making the benefits of technology available to the many and not just the few,” he added.

Kapp continued by saying that as the company celebrates its 25th birthday, it also looks to the future with excitement and optimism, asserting: “We know that the world is changing rapidly, and we are committed to staying at the forefront of these changes.”

The celebratory theme of the event was “Megatrends”, and company representatives expressed how much they are looking forward to technology trends and practical innovation for a better world. This focused particularly on the four megatrends: electrification of everything, smart everything, energy management, and autonomous machines.
