Arrow Electronics Inc.'s North American Components (NAC) unit and China Great Wall Computer Group Co. have signed a partnership agreement involving manufacturing, logistics and supply of various electronic components.

According to the press release, Arrow's OEM clients can have their products assembled at Great Wall Group's facility, bringing the finished products closer to the customers based in Asia.

"Arrow can now ensure that customers who want to manufacturer their products overseas will have their established manufacturing practices replicated exactly, which eliminates the need to conduct inspections at multiple manufacturing sites," said Steve Ramsland, vice president and general manager of Arrow OEM computing solutions, in a statement. "Our global customers now have a cost-effective way to penetrate the Asian market while maintaining the same quality standards they are accustomed to in North America."

Aside from shifting manufacturing to China, the agreement enables Arrow to a customer's entire supply chain to China without changing a product's BOM. "We can shift the customer's component buy to China," said Jennifer Johnson, director of technical services at NAC. "When we source in North America, we had to transport parts from Asia. Now we's sourcing in the region where the manufacturing will take place."

Arrow is a global provider of products, services and solutions to industrial and commercial users of electronic components and computer products.
