Thank you for your interest in MINK Associates

The Manufacturers’ Representative Firm By Which Others Are Measured

 

Established in 1990, MINK Associates derived its name from the initial territories served:  Missouri; Iowa; Nebraska; Kansas; Southern Illinois.  Although the core focus of our business continues to be the MINK states, we can also offer coverage for Arkansas, Oklahoma, North and South Dakota, Colorado, Indiana, Illinois, Wisconsin and Minnesota.

With our solutions based approach to selling, we provide a professional level of representation for our principals while ultimately helping our customers solve the daily design challenges facing their business.  A comprehensive understanding of customer needs within our territory coupled with a deep product knowledge have allowed MINK Associates to grow into the selling machine it is today.
