CRN states “While everyone in the channel knows bigwig distributors like Ingram Micro and Tech Data, smaller distributors that focus on niche technologies or geographies are making their mark, offering resellers a variety of options when it comes to choosing the right solution from the right distributor.”
Arbitech’s business has evolved over the past seven years from a small brokerage to a full service distributor selling server, storage and networking products from tier one brands. However, most recently it has begun to expand its offerings by partnering directly with innovative manufacturers such as Kingston & iStor to introduce new technologies to its reseller partners.
“Based on the strength of our customer partnerships and reputation for high quality products and services, we have started forming direct relationships with manufacturers who see value in a different approach to the market”, states Josh McCarter, Arbitech’s President & COO. “I anticipate more manufacturers will seek either direct or indirect relationships with us over the coming years as they look at new ways to reach the SMB market in which we dominate.”
Arbitech has solidified relationships with leading resellers, system integrators and distributors that benefit from Arbitech’s competitive pricing, extensive product offering, and a level of service that isn’t usually found at its bigger competitors.
“While larger distributors have sought to slash costs and outsource many aspects of their businesses, Arbitech has invested heavily in its customer relationships and domestic support infrastructure”, notes Don Shafer, Arbitech’s VP of Corporate Development. “Resellers need distributor partners like Arbitech that will create greater opportunity to win deals, generate profit, provide flexibility and offer quality support”, adds Shafer.
Arbitech, LLC, founded in August 2000, is the nation's leading independent distributor of server, storage, networking, mobility, telephony and point-of-sale products. By offering creative, cost-effective solutions, Arbitech enables its customers to win net-new business and earn greater profits. Recognized locally by industry associations and business publications for company culture and growth, Arbitech strives to be a total solutions provider with its extensive product offerings and value added services.
