Kerridge Commercial Systems, a global company headquartered in the United Kingdom, has reached an agreement to acquire Mincron Software Systems, based in Houston.
KCS is the market-leading and award-winning provider of solutions with more than 800 distributive trade customers worldwide, focusing on wholesalers/distributors/retailers and merchants in the construction, industrial and other sectors.
Mincron has a 30-year history of delivering ERP solutions to a similar customer profile.
The acquisition of Mincron by KCS follows the successful acquisition and integration of Cary, N.C.-based Dancik International in July 2015.
Mincron will continue to focus on product innovation, including maintaining and supporting the existing SmartDistributor product suite while providing customers access to other products and services from the KCS portfolio.
Speaking about the acquisition, Ian Bendelow, KCS Group CEO commented: "It strengthens our geographical presence in the North American market and provides a further platform for growth in this important region. Mincron aligns with our successful business strategy of focusing on trading and business management solutions for the distributive trades, including wholesalers, distributors, retailers, merchants and resellers.
Wendy Berger, general manager of Mincron stated: “The acquisition by KCS brings together two great companies with similar history, culture and customer profile. The combined resources will further strengthen the KCS brand in North America and I look forward to being part of the group and leading the Mincron team into a new era of opportunity.”
