Joy Global Honors JADCO with 2012 Premier Supplier Award


Joy Global honored JADCO Manufacturing with its prestigious 2012 Premier Supplier Award, which is reserved for suppliers who meet extremely strict performance standards. JADCO provides custom wear steel solutions to Joy, and has built a strong and valuable business relationship with them over the past 25 years.

“I am very pleased that we were able to win this award,” said Sam Anderson, president of JADCO Manufacturing. “You have to meet very stringent quantitative metrics [to win the award], 95% on time delivery coupled with 98% quality performance. And we are pleased to have finished well above these targets.”

JADCO also excelled in providing cost saving opportunities, innovation, and supplier collaboration, which was also a major factor in their selection for this award.
