This acquisition by Arrow will allow us to leverage synergies between our engineering capabilities and digital transformation offerings with Arrow’s tremendous breadth of electronics and enterprise products and solutions, and digital operations, including in IoT. This also brings a $23.8 billion revenue Fortune 118 corporation to Ahmedabad, Gujarat – which is a matter of immense pride to all of us at eInfochips. This acquisition is also a testament to our engineering execution, expertise in connected devices and connecting them to the cloud, and the trust that our clients place in us. We are excited to join forces with Arrow to further add value to our clients across the world,” said Pratul Shroff, CEO of eInfochips.
