Minneapolis, MN, August 09, 2006 --(PR.com)-- http://www.minco.com – Minco, a designer and manufacturer of critical components for critical applications, today announced its affiliation with the Supply-Chain Council, a global, non-profit trade organization dedicated to sponsoring and supporting educational programs.

Minco, a company that is focused on bringing educational value to design engineers and manufacturers, views its involvement in the Supply-Chain Council as an additional educational resource to better serve its customers.

“Minco is in a very fortunate position to be on the cutting edge of technological development,” said Tony Peet, Minco Vice President.  “Minco wants to leverage this position as much as possible to get breakthrough applications to the market and really respond to emerging industry needs.”
