Associated Partners With RMU

Addison, IL — Associated partnered with Robert Morris University’s Morris Graduate School of Management to increase awareness about the value that the material handling industry brings to the supply chain. The project engaged students in evaluating and analyzing real world issues to reinforce and embed the skills that they had acquired in their courses. Eight students were asked to define the role of certain employees in executing Associated’s new branding initiative and recommend how these employees should be engaged and trained to meet the expectations of the new initiative. “In addition to the great ideas and valuable insight these students provided, this project served as a platform to create awareness and appreciation of our industry.  Increasing exposure to the academic community will ensure the availability of a continuing pool of talent that will sustain the industry’s growth and success as well serve to educate future decision makers as to the value we bring to the buyers and users of our products and services,” says Michael B. Romano, president and CEO of Associated. “We are grateful for the opportunity to work with RMU in this mutually beneficial endeavor.”
