The Arcum Group was founded in 1994 to offer customers a range of electronic and IT products and business services. There are two trading companies within the group and the professional approach of each organisation makes them leaders in their industry sectors.
Each company benefits from the business support offered by a group structure, but is given the autonomy necessary to work quickly and efficiently with their customers.
The companies are -
Inelco Hunter Ltd – a specialist value added UK distributor supplying; Electronic Components, ESD Protection & Static Control, LCD Displays & Touch Screens, Thermal Printers and Printing Solutions and Fans & Blowers
Electronic Frontier Ltd – a leading value-added distributor of datacomms, IT security, networking solutions, IP CCTV and services
The Arcum Group has grown quickly through acquisition and today has more than 50 employees. There are plans for ambitious growth over the next few years which will further establish the group’s excellent reputation as a quality and innovation led supplier.
Working as a group of distributors, Arcum companies add value by offering a range of specialist products and services. By marketing the latest technologies and services the group can offer a competitive advantage through helping to reduce their customers’ supplier list, resulting in a more efficient and cost effective sourcing process.
The group’s headquarters in Theale, Berkshire provides warehousing and offices for Arcum, Electronic Frontier and Inelco Hunter.
Arcum Group companies operate predominantly in the UK and Europe but can support suppliers and customers worldwide if required. They work with clients in a variety of sectors including aerospace, automotive, defence, education, medical, security and telecommunications. Highly skilled and experienced staff in the group offer expertise in many areas including sales and marketing, logistics, sub and system assembly, technical knowledge and design.
Its role as the holding company allows Arcum to add key skills and knowledge to the group organisation. It helps with current and future market intelligence, marketing and sales support, finance, and logistics. The group’s approach to business means that each of the four sales companies actively strives to innovate and create demand in their markets rather than simply responding to their customers’ existing needs. The group’s decentralised organisation helps with this proactive approach and each company is given the autonomy necessary to ensure that they meet or exceed the specific needs of their local market.
