Komatsu Mining Corp. Spotlighted at Carbon Chamber Awards

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

Komatsu, formerly known as Joy Global, is a fully-equipped original and rebuilder of surface and underground Joy Global products. Over 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry has been shared by Komatsu and Joy. In 1999, Joy moved to their current location on Ridge Road in Wellington. Komatsu Limited acquired Joy Global, rebranding as Komatsu Mining Corp., but the Joy brand remains strong with all equipment still branded in the traditional “Joy orange”.

Hackney emphasized that Komatsu has achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents while also celebrating its 100th year in service in 2021. In closing, Hackney expressed gratitude to CCCC for recognizing their achievements and pledged to continue providing support to the community as they have for the past 52 years.
