Our business brings us into contact with some outstanding organizations and individuals. As our Chief Strategy Officer Thom Campbell explained in an interview earlier this year, it’s the passion for people in the supply chain world that really drives our efforts.
With that in mind, and the occasion of Thanksgiving fast approaching in the United States, we thought it would be worth taking the time to focus on some partners and vendors that we believe represent the best of our profession. This is our “Vendor Spotlight” series, and this week we’ll focus on our New Jersey neighbors Micara Trading.
Vendor Spotlight: Micara Trading
The relationship we have with Micara Trading and owner David Weisfelner goes back quite some time, and with the company’s 30+ years in the industry that won’t come as much of a surprise.
Micara operates in the logistics and distribution field with a strong focus on garment work and special services. These specialties include sewing, steaming, dry-cleaning, price ticketing and odor removal, with many other valuable refurbishing options if a client bringing in a shipment finds that something has gone awry in transit.
Given the potential for damage to garments and the high rejection rates caused by even minor blemishes, expert care is required at both ends of the shipment process, from sourcing to delivery. Decades of experience make for great confidence in the latter part of the supply chain, even in cases where the earlier elements don’t live up to expectations.
In short, what David Weisfelner and his team don’t know about the apparel industry probably isn’t worth knowing, and it’s their clients who benefit from it!
When you need a quick turnaround and flawless delivery, this is the kind of back up that product planners want to have on their side. As you review the company’s website you’ll notice the same refrain crop up time and again, “problem solving,” “resolving,” “solutions,” and plenty more synonyms to describe the same core value: Micara Trading is an organization that cares about your business challenges and has a passion to help you hurdle them.
One of the reasons our two companies have connected so often over the years is down not only to geographical proximity but also having values that are extremely close to one another. Both companies have been built on a passion to understand our clients and serve them better with each subsequent shipment. We’re both high-touch, hands on service providers with a commitment to solving problems and seeing the job through.
Micara has committed to this superior level of service for three decades and provides a role model for us to keep striving that bit higher with each new piece of work we undertake.
