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., a fully-equipped original and rebuilder of surface and underground Joy Global products, was highlighted as the business spotlight for the event.

Komatsu, formerly known as Joy Global, has been serving Carbon County since 1972, 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. 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.”

Recently celebrating its 100th year in service in 2021, Komatsu has achieved twelve years without any lost time accidents. Tanner Hackney from Komatsu shared that they have a collective 200 years of experience and knowledge in the mining industry. He emphasized this when he thanked CCCC for recognizing their contributions to the community and pledged to continue supporting them as they have done for the past 52 years.
