“Adding Siebert’s 16 staff to the Arrow Scotland team will expand our local customer support and fits with Arrow’s ‘buy, build and stay local’ strategy.

“Our third acquisition of 2017 adds further geographic and product portfolio diversity to Arrow and completes the achievement of our key objectives for the year. I have no doubt Arrow Scotland will continue to grow and thrive in the years to come.”
