In this time we have established ourselves as experienced ‘system integrators’ at all levels of technology the company specialises in. ARC endeavours to continue to be industry leaders in providing inventive security, audio visual, automation and electrical solutions.


colinARC has owned and operated by Colin and Antoinette Young since April 2008. Having lived in the Waikato all their lives, principally in Cambridge and Hamilton, ARC is privy to a wealth of local knowledge. Colin and Antoinette have enjoyed over 40 years of marriage; have two adult children and two grandchildren.

Colin, the director of the company, has over thirty years of business leadership experience both in the technology industry and commercial property investment. This has enabled him to quickly understand his client’s needs and provide them with creative customised solution, whether for enhancing office security measures or for installing home or business automation systems.
