Komatsu Mining Corp. Spotlighted at Carbon Chamber Awards

Komatsu Mining Corp., formerly known as Joy Global, was the business spotlight at the March luncheon for the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce (CCCC) held at the Southeastern Regional Development Agency (SERDA) building on Thursday, March 21. Tanner Hackney, Ronnie Bogdin and Tom King from Komatsu accepted the nomination from CCCC’s Vice President, Scottie Draper.

Komatsu is a fully-equipped original and rebuilder of surface and underground Joy Global products. The company began serving Carbon County in 1972 by establishing a warehouse to support customers in the west. As business levels grew, Joy expanded globally, providing equipment to locations such as Brazil, Canada, and Asia. In 1999, Joy moved to their current location on Ridge Road in Wellington and was later acquired by Komatsu Limited who rebranded as Komatsu Mining Corp. The Joy brand remains strong with all equipment still branded in the traditional “Joy orange”.

In recent years, Komatsu has celebrated its 100th year in service while Joy Global reached 100 years in 2019. Hackney emphasized that Komatsu has achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents and that they share a collective 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry with Joy Global. In closing, he expressed gratitude to CCCC for recognizing their achievements and pledged to continue supporting the community as they have done for over 52 years.
