Arrow Electronics introduces specialist LED group

Distributor Arrow Electronics is focusing on LED applications from transportation to lighting.

In response to rapid growth in the lighting market, the North American Components business of Arrow Electronics, Inc. has formed a group which is solely dedicated to supporting manufacturers of products containing high brightness LEDs.

"We've witnessed dramatic growth within the LED market and an increasing demand for a dedicated group focused solely on this product sector," said David West, vice president, Market Development, Arrow Electronics.

Robert Sagebiel has been named Director of Lighting to lead the new organization, which consists of regional lighting specialists, lighting applications engineers and dedicated inside sales representatives.

Sagebiel joins Arrow from Chicago Miniature Lamp, Inc., where he held positions in both sales and marketing. He has more than two decades of experience in the lighting industry, and spent the last several years building new business and managing product development.

"With Robert's leadership and industry expertise, Arrow is well positioned to meet our customers' needs as the lighting market continues to expand and evolve in the future," said David West.

Arrow's new organization will provide LED products and applications support and services in designs ranging from transportation to general lighting. Arrow also will continue to expand its lighting product portfolio, and recently added Harvatek International, a leading manufacturer of surface mount chip LEDs, to its supplier listing.
