“Arbitech is an excellent fit, both in distributor focus and corporate culture,” said John Holland, vice president, domestic sales, Kingston®. “Their focus on servers, storage and networking is ideal for helping us reach our customers in two very distinct market segments: digital media and server memory; plus we’re like-minded when it comes to work ethics and our unique approach to doing business.”
