NAPERVILLE, IL, September 1, 2016 – G&D Integrated announced that their membership in Komatsu America Corporation’s Midori Kai has been renewed for the ninth year, for their continuing work as a key supplier with Komatsu America PMO (Peoria Manufacturing Operations).
Midori Kai began in Japan in 1952 and is an association of select Komatsu supplier companies that have been chosen for membership based on measurable high standards. G&D Integrated, a specialized provider of transportation, contract and manufacturing logistics services, was one of a select few who were awarded membership out of the 200 suppliers at Komatsu America PMO. G&D Integrated provides fabrication, sub-assembly, painting, and kitting for Komatsu which manufactures large, electric-drive, off-road dump trucks used in mining applications worldwide.
Komatsu suppliers were recognized at a formal banquet in July for their achievement. “We are honored to once again receive membership in Midori Kai and look forward to continuing our long-term partnership with Komatsu,” said Business Operations Manager, Shawn O’Connor. “We will continue to provide the world-class service and commitment to quality that Komatsu has come to expect from G&D to help them meet their customers’ needs.”
