Elgin, IL…One year after Elgin Industries’ induction into the John Deere Supplier Hall of Fame, the company has continued its streak of excellence, earning recognition as a “Partner-Level Supplier” in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program for the sixth consecutive year.

Partner-Level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating, awarded to companies that exceed expectations for product and service quality and are dedicated to continuous improvement. A leading global manufacturer of engine and chassis components, Elgin earned the award based on outstanding customer support in 2017 and the high-quality internal engine components it supplies to John Deere operations around the world.

“We are honored to once again be awarded Partner-Level status in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program,” said Elgin Industries President Bill Skok. “Elgin Industries is dedicated to supporting our customers with world-class products and service. Earning this recognition six years in a row demonstrates our commitment to customer satisfaction and success.”

The Achieving Excellence Program, which was established in 1991, aims to promote continuous improvement via a supplier evaluation and feedback process. Participating suppliers are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including cost management, delivery, quality, technical support and “wavelength,” which is a measure of responsiveness.
