In 1978, Rodney Trahan founded Red Arrow Tools, selling tools and equipment to mechanics and contractors out of the back of his half-ton van. Over the next two decades, Red Arrow Tools became Arrow Equipment Inc, selling and servicing waste oil heaters, and Arrow Express, a full-service auto shop. Forty years later, in 2018, Rodney's son, Colin Trahan, saw the need for a local HVAC wholesale distributor in the New
England region. His vision was to provide expert product knowledge while building personal relationships with his customers based on quality products. Through countless hours establishing a customer base, the support of his family, and the Arrow name, Arrow Central was born.
In 2019 Arrow Central partnered with Soleno Manufacturing and began offering drainage and geotextile products to meet the high demand for exterior site works and utility. In 2020 Arrow Central grew exponentially, introducing Gree Comfort heat pumps while continuing to expand dirt works through introducing new landscaping and water piping products.
Arrow Central has continued growing its staff due to increased customer demand; introducing Michael Norman, with his background in civil engineering, Rick Hannagan and his experience in retail, HVAC, and plumbing, Cregg Brunelle, former waste-oil and boiler mechanic, and our warehouse staff, Mathieu, along with our shop dog Whiskey.
As Arrow Central continues to serve the New England region, we are excited for what the future holds as we continue to expand and grow!
