Our history.

The year is 1988. Computers were on their way to becoming a mainstay of modern society, not least through the introduction of the first personal computers. While Apple Macintosh II was still wowing fans with its 16 MHz processor, ARP opened its doors in Switzerland. It was the beginning of an era marked by rapid transformation in and through IT.

The beginnings.

ARP has been there every step of the way, reinventing itself regularly to keep pace with the changing times. ARP was originally founded as a division of ARP AG, a Swiss industrial supplier. Just two years later, it broke off to become an independent company, ARP Datacon AG, and has forged full-steam ahead ever since. That same year, ARP Datacon AG opened its first office in Germany. It would go on to add four more subsidiaries in Austria, the Netherlands, France and Belgium, as well as its own purchasing company in Taiwan. ARP became part of the Bechtle Group in 2004, joining forces with a powerful network of companies whose services cover large parts of Europe and the world.


Customers today enjoy the benefits of our cross-channel strategy, which links account management with our e-commerce shop. Our mission is to serve you as a stalwart partner—through a wide range of products, extensive expertise and comprehensive services. In other words, we make your working life that bit easier.

ARP and Bechtle
working in close collaboration:

We're part of Bechtle but operate independently. This means that you benefit from international presence and an extensive manufacturer network. ARP has been a member of the Bechtle Group for over ten years. As part of this international group, we are able to benefit from shared technical and project expertise, as well as synergies and an established infrastructure. This support system lays the groundwork for us to provide unbeatable customer service. ARP is part of the e-commerce segment of Bechtle AG.

What the future holds.

We spend a lot of time thinking about digitalisation at ARP. That’s why we founded our Digital House in 2016, a team dedicated to driving a cross-channel strategy and interweaving our account management with e-commerce business. What does this mean for you? It's simple: by leveraging the various benefits of digitalisation, we’ll be able to align our consulting services, procurement process, portfolio and your shopping experience ever more closely with your expectations.

Let’s connect. IT’s easy – that’s our promise to you.
