Arrow Electronics Expands Its Centre of Excellence in Egypt

Arrow Electronics and its engineering services company, eInfochips, have announced the expansion of its Automotive Centre of Excellence (CoE) in Egypt to assist customers in the development of next-gen automotive products.

Arrow’s Automotive CoE addresses the opportunities and helps resolve the challenges associated with connected, autonomous and electrification technologies in the automotive industry. The complexities associated with adopting such emerging technologies, including lack of in-house engineering talent with new age skills, stringent cybersecurity compliances and intricate high-voltage designs, pose challenges for innovators.

With this in mind, Arrow’s recent acquisition of Avelabs, a leading engineering services provider for the automotive industry, further expands this CoE’s capabilities. Headquartered in Cairo, Egypt, with offices in Munich, Germany and Troy, Mich., U.S.A., Avelabs helps automotive OEMs and Tier-1 companies accelerate product development, with its deep expertise in AUTOSAR (Automotive Open Systems Architecture), functional safety and cyber security.

With the enhanced capabilities, Arrow’s CoE aims to enable innovators to navigate the complexities of automotive electronics design.

“The migration towards electric, autonomous and connected vehicles will accelerate electronic content in automobiles, as well as automotive engineering services spend,” said Rick Marano, president of Arrow’s global components business. “The automotive CoE in Egypt, augmented by our acquisition of Avelabs, complements and expands upon our existing engineering services provided by Arrow and eInfochips. This will further strengthen our value proposition for our customers and suppliers in the transportation segment.”
