Arrow Asia Pac Ltd. announced that Richard Huxley, Vice President of
Marketing, Arrow Asia Pac Ltd., will present at a RoHS webcast to be hosted by

During the webcast, Richard -- who leads Arrow's RoHS initiatives in Asia -- will give an overview of the   complex challenges that suppliers and manufacturers face.   He will also discuss various cost and implementation issues that manufacturers should be aware of if they wish to develop a lean, responsible and scalable plan to become RoHS compliant.   Arrow has arrived at these best practices through in-depth experience of servicing a wide range of customers and

suppliers.   "We have a unique perspective to provide information and insight to our 150,000 customer base.   This includes practical steps that can be taken now to ensure an effective transition to RoHS compliance," said Richard.
