On March 24, 2016, Nidec Minster solidified their partnership with the U.S. Army in a signing ceremony, with the assistance of the Cleveland Recruiting Battalion that falls under the command of Lt. Col. Jason Kerr. The ceremony promptly began at 10:00 a.m. with the musical rendition of the National Anthem by the quartet-band members of Thien Snips. Appropriately following, was the presentation of colors by Soldiers from the Marion Recruiting Company and opening remarks by Lt. Col. Kerr, "It's an honor to be here in mid-America," said Kerr. "It's an exciting day for the Army to connect with the community of Minster, OH."
Approximately 50 people were in attendance as Lt. Col. Kerr shared the benefits of PaYS and how the partnership would significantly empower the economics of the Minster community. President and Chief Operating Officer, Steve Gruber started with the machine company in October 1987 as a design engineer and expressed his enthusiasm about the future the company holds with the Army, "Minster is honored to be part of the partnership, we are grateful because of the win-win. We look for the discipline, pride, and technical competence that the Army has to offer." The U.S. Army is proud to welcome Nidec Minster as PaYS Partner #573.

March 25, 2016 was a great day of celebration at the Market Transport offices. Market Transport became the U.S. Army's 570th partner through the Partnership for Youth Success (PaYS) Program, in an effort to provide employment opportunities for Veterans.
Market Transport, a division of Union-Transportation Worldwide Inc., provides a fleet of trucks, trailers, and third party logistics for intermodal, dedicated, regional and long haul transportation needs. Since 1969, they have earned their customers' trust by offering flexible transportation solutions that achieve their most complicated logistics and organizational goals. Market Transport is headquartered in Portland, Oregon, with trucking facilities in Washington, California, Arizona, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, and Pennsylvania.
The ceremony was attended by Robert Underwood, Recruiter and Driver Resources Supervisor for Market Transport, Ltd., Maj. Matthew Giacobbe, Portland Recruiting BN Executive Officer, and Karim Delgado, Advertising and Public Affairs Chief of the Portland Recruiting BN. The three kept the ceremony small (in Underwood’s office). Underwood expressed how excited he is about the partnership with the U.S. Army. “We would like to do more with PaYS because we are so large, and are located in other areas,” said Underwood.
Underwood mentioned how being able to leverage PaYS would be ideal because they would be able to attract the same drivers in the motor transport industry to those in the military with similar experience as his veteran drivers. Underwood did not fail to mention that his top three employees were all Veterans. “You can be assured that the works get done.”
Underwood shared a personal story about his son - who is currently serving in the Army as a Healthcare Specialist. He was grateful about how the Army gave his son the discipline needed to be a better person, “It [Army] completely changed him.”
Market Transport is looking forward to highlighting its first Soldier who will be hired through the PaYS Program.
