Carclo Optics, based in Slough, United Kingdom, is a business division of Carclo Technical Plastics Ltd. (CTP), and supplies a range of lighting products including lenses, reflectors, optics and modules. Carclo develops street lighting systems, among others.

Its partnership with Carclo Optics enables Arrow to expand its range of lighting solutions in the high-power LED and solid-state lighting sectors. In combination with technical consultancy from its EMEA Lighting Team specialists, Arrow is in a position to offer an overall product range for the development and production of a lighting application, from drivers and connectors through power and thermal management solutions through to LEDs.   
 
 “Following our numerous successful projects in Northern Europe, we are now expanding our cooperation with Arrow in the EMEA region in order to benefit from the distributor’s broad range of customers and expertise in the lighting segment,” explains David Sumner, LED Optics division manager, CTP. “Arrow has in recent years placed a clear emphasis on lighting, and has built up considerable expertise in lighting solutions of all kinds. This, combined with its global strength, makes Arrow an important partner for us, as CTP is a strongly export-oriented business.”
 
“With Carclo, we have been able to join forces with a company with a lengthy tradition, which has been developing optical technologies since 1936,” says Paul Drosihn, technology development manager in lighting, Arrow EMEA. “The high degree of specialisation of Carclo’s Optics division, which has its own development, specialised tooling and polish capabilities, opens up new service opportunities for us. We are focusing on the overall lighting applications of our customers, and Carclo is a partner with whom we will be able to optimally fulfil this requirement in the market.”
