Kerridge Commercial Systems (KCS), the supplier of software to the merchant industry, has bought Mincron Software Systems, based in Houston, Texas.
KCS has over 800 distributive trade customers worldwide, focusing on wholesalers/distributors/retailers and merchants in the construction, industrial and other sectors.
In parallel, Mincron has a 30-year history of delivering ERP solutions to a similar customer profile i.e. businesses that need to source effectively, stock efficiently, sell profitably and service competitively.
The acquisition of Mincron by KCS follows the successful acquisition and integration of Cary, North Carolina-based Dancik International in July 2015.
Ian Bendelow, KCS Group CEO, said: “This is another key strategic acquisition for us and our second in North America in as many years. 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.”
