Arrow ECS Signs Exclusive Agreement with ARTEX Environmental for E-Waste Disposal Solutions for Resellers

Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions, a business segment of Arrow Electronics Inc. [NYSE: ARW], announced an exclusive distribution agreement with ARTEX Environmental Corporation enabling Canadian resellers to offer electronic waste disposal solutions to their customers as a managed service.

“Disposing of retired and obsolete computing solutions is an aspect of information technology that requires sophisticated solutions from credible service providers. Selecting the right e-waste service provider requires equal focus on advanced environmental solutions and uncompromising levels of security to protect companies against data and identity theft. ARTEX addresses both of these requirements and is one of the leading companies in this space,” said Robert Boulet, vice president of Arrow ECS Canada. “Arrow ECS is pleased to assist resellers in this critical area of IT support. Serving as the service provider for removing old technology gives resellers the opening to suggest new solutions to replace that equipment.”

Operating a secure and highly automated e-waste recycling facility, ARTEX Environmental processes end-of-life computers and other retired electronic equipment in a manner that meets or exceeds the highest regulatory standards and provides best-practices environmental solutions. Just as important, ARTEX provides industry-leading, secure data-destruction services, essentially eliminating any chance of identity theft or loss of confidential information. ARTEX guarantees that e-waste it receives will never be dumped in landfills nor shipped to developing countries and will at all times be handled in the most environmentally sound and cost-efficient manner.

“With ARTEX in partnership with Arrow ECS, resellers have the piece of mind of knowing they are providing their customers with industry-leading solutions through the same distributor that provides their hardware, software and storage solutions and other IT services,” said Paul Blanchard, president of ARTEX Environmental. “We believe that the reseller becomes more relevant in the eyes of its customer because the reseller can provide full lifecycle solutions and can therefore generate additional revenue through the sale of annuity-based asset-disposition services to their customers.”
