Arrow Electronics Shutters US ITAD Division

Categories: News

Very little notice was provided when Arrow Electronics announced earlier their Mobility Asset Disposition Business or ITAD division would shut down abruptly leaving customers and employees scrambling. 

“We’ve noted a higher than normal increase in companywide closures,” said Brodie Ehresman a spokesman for Advanced Technology Recycling (ATR) “The problem isn’t the availability of good equipment, it’s what they’re doing with it after the customer releases it.”

Companies that enter this space from the waste side are struggling to recover the full value of their customers assets because they lack the technical resources to properly grade, test, repair and sell the equipment before it depreciates any further.  ATR entered this space in 1992 as a Managed Service Provider (MSP) and Value-Added Reseller (VAR) long before ITAD was even a term and we understand technology assets better than anyone out there.

If you’re ready to have a Global Leader in Sustainable Life Cycle Management compete for your business or employment skills then we have good news.  ATR customer service representatives, national account managers, logistics teams and HR are on standby and ready to assist all former Arrow Electronics ITAD customers seeking long term management solutions. ATR has (8) R2 certified locations strategically located throughout the country and all facilities are instructed to prioritize and expedite services for all former Arrow Electronics customers affected.
