Texas A and M partners with Mincron to prepare students for distribution careers

Texas A and M

Mincron facilitated the opportunity for Col. Mark Johnson (center), Associate Professor of Practice, to bring a group of Industrial Distribution students to tour the Goodman Distribution branch in College Station, Texas. Goodman is a long-time Mincron customer, so students were able to see Mincron SmartWare solutions at work in a real-world distribution operation.

One of the biggest challenges being faced by hard goods distributors is the recruitment of new talent as more Baby Boomers retire every year.

Mincron strongly believes in supporting the future of our customers, which led us to form a partnership in 2015 with Texas A&M University and its prestigious Industrial Distribution Program. We work with Texas A&M for its courses on enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems and supply chain management, which provides students hands-on experience with Mincron solutions. This not only gives graduates a competitive edge when they enter the workplace, but also ensures that distributors have access to recruiting the type of talent necessary to gain a competitive edge in the marketplace.

A comprehensive feature article called “Charting the Future of Distribution,” written by Mincron's Marketing Manager, provides a look inside the University’s Industrial Distribution Program, its offerings and its leaders, as well as Mincron’s involvement with the program. The feature recently ran in several major industry trade magazines. You can access the feature in its entirety as it appeared on the websites of Distribution Center News and Industrial Supply magazines.
