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. In 1972, Joy Global began serving Carbon County by establishing a warehouse 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, rebranding 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 100 years in 2019.

Hackney emphasized that Komatsu has achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents while also highlighting the collective 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry shared by Komatsu and Joy
