“Hip factor” earned Arbitech the #1 spot in OC METRO BUSINESS magazine's annual list of top workplaces.
IRVINE , Calif., June 19, 2008 — Arbitech, LLC, the nation’s leading independent computer hardware distributor, is one of the best places to work in Orange County, Calif., according to OC METRO BUSINESS magazine. In its June 5 cover story, the magazine identified Arbitech’s happy workforce as one of its secrets to success.Founded in August 2000 on a culture focused on empowerment, fun and family, Arbitech won kudos in the annual roundup for having a “hip factor” that includes benefits promoting an active lifestyle. This work-hard, play-hard culture recognizes achievement and laid the foundation for Arbitech’s rapid expansion.
“We are thankful that OC METRO BUSINESS recognized our first-class employees, who drive our year-over-year success,” said Torin Pavia, co-founder and chief executive officer, Arbitech. “They come to work every day excited about what they do and where they work. We ask a lot of each other. As a result, we honor our employees by providing them with company trips every year, catered lunches every day, an on-site gym and personal trainer, and numerous other benefits that reward and recognize them.”
In a marketplace where margins are tight and larger competitors are outsourcing jobs overseas and cutting benefits, Arbitech has continued to invest in its employees and work environment.

Arbitech topped Entrepreneur's HOT 100 list in 2004, ranked among the INC 500 in 2004, nabbed a finalist nod in Ernst & Young’s 2006 Entrepreneurial Company of the Year competition and was named as one of the top Emerging Distributors to Watch in 2007 by CRN.

This has allowed us to grow quickly with virtually no turnover of staff among our full-time workers.”
