Komatsu Mining Corp. Shines as Business Spotlight at Carbon County Chamber of Commerce Luncheon

Komatsu Mining Corp. Recognized at Carbon Chamber Awards

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

Komatsu has been serving Carbon County since 1972, starting with a warehouse to support customers in the west. As business grew, so did customer expectations, leading to global assignments in Brazil, Canada, and Asia. To meet the demand, an addition was built on the warehouse to handle rebuilds and new builds on heavy equipment. In 1999, Joy Global moved to their current location on Ridge Road in Wellington and was acquired by Komatsu Limited in 2019. Despite the change in ownership, the Joy brand remains strong, with all equipment still branded in the iconic “Joy orange.”

Hackney noted that Komatsu celebrated their 100th anniversary in 2021 and achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents. He shared that Komatsu has a combined 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry and expressed gratitude to CCCC for recognizing their efforts. He assured that Komatsu will continue supporting the community as they have for the past 52 years.
