Amber Vold has joined Ginho America as its first intern. The appointment was made partly to support significant new automotive contract wins, and also as the company commits to a new scheme for sourcing talent.

Amber will work in a business administration manager role, while she completes her supply chain management degree at Chippewa Valley Technical College, Wisconsin. She will be involved with purchasing, logistics and the inventory of materials from Ginho’s manufacturing plant in China, along with pricing, costs, delivery and specifications of international and domestic shipments.

Amber has excellent credentials from her role as process technician with 3M, responsible for machine operation and preventive maintenance, troubleshooting, data entry, auditing and quality control, alongside training others and collaborating on new products and their process development.

Chad Hempel, Ginho America managing director, is delighted to welcome Amber to the team, commenting: “This is the first time that we have employed an intern at Ginho America. It is great to have new talent joining the business as we continue to grow and look at new ways to enhance our service to customers. I am very confident that both Amber and Ginho America will benefit from this internship.

“Looking to the future, we are collaborating with Chippewa Valley Technical College to identify the best student talent, creating an intern to hire process, potentially across many areas of the business including sales, accounting and warehousing.”

Amber added: “I am really excited about my new role at Ginho, which is enabling me to learn new ‘real world’ skills alongside completing my degree in supply chain management.”
