Arrow Electronics was founded in 1935 when a retail store named Arrow Radio opened on Cortlandt Street in the heart of lower Manhattan’s “Radio Row,” the birthplace of electronics distribution. Arrow Radio, established by Maurice (“Murray”) Goldberg, sold used radios and radio parts to retail customers.
The business was incorporated as Arrow Electronics, Inc. in 1946.
In 1961 the company completed its initial public offering and listed its shares on the American Stock Exchange.
In 1968, Glenn, Green & Waddell, a partnership formed by three recent graduates of the Harvard Business School, led a private investor group that acquired the controlling interest in Arrow. The investors saw an opportunity to consolidate the fragmented electronics industry.
In 1979, Arrow was listed on the New York Stock Exchange.
The company relocated its headquarters office to Centennial, Colorado in 2011.
