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., formerly known as Joy Global, 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.

In 1972, Joy Global established a warehouse in Carbon County to support customers in the west. As business levels grew, Joy expanded globally, providing equipment to locations such as Brazil, Canada, and Asia. An addition was built on the warehouse to allow for complete rebuilds and new builds on heavy equipment due to increased sales. In 1999, Joy moved to their current location on Ridge Road in Wellington. Komatsu Limited acquired Joy Global and rebranded as Komatsu Mining Corp., but the Joy brand remains strong with all equipment still branded in the traditional “Joy orange”. Komatsu recently celebrated its 100th year in service in 2021 while Joy Global reached its 100th year in 2019.

Hackney emphasized the collective 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry shared by Komatsu and Joy. He also mentioned that Komatsu has achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents. In closing, Hackney expressed gratitude to CCCC for recognizing their efforts and pledged to continue providing support to the community as they have for over 52 years.
