Komatsu Mining Corp.: Shining Bright as Business Spotlight in Carbon County

Komatsu Mining Corp. Recognized at Carbon Chamber Awards

Komatsu Mining Corp. was recognized as the business spotlight during the March luncheon hosted by the Carbon County Chamber of Commerce (CCCC) at the Southeastern Regional Development Agency (SERDA) building on March 21st. 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 leading original and rebuilder of surface and underground Joy Global products. Joy Global 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 in the last decade, they were acquired by Komatsu Limited and became Komatsu Mining Corp. Despite the change in ownership, the Joy brand remains strong
