Jasper Engines & Transmissions has recognized Elgin Industries as a top-performing supplier for the 16th consecutive year, as well as Dura-Bond Bearing Company as a Preferred Partner.

Elgin recently was one of a select number of manufacturers to receive the Jasper “ELMO” trophy, emblematic of service excellence, for the 2016 calendar year. Jasper measures a variety of service characteristics – “can do” attitude, sense of urgency, timely responses, problem resolution, and technical expertise – across its entire supply base.

“We have been a trusted partner to Jasper for more than 50 years and are committed to building on this strong relationship through our development and delivery of world-class products and industry-leading service,” said Elgin Industries President Bill Skok.

Dura-Bond Bearing Company was presented its award as a Preferred Partner by Jasper at its Annual Preferred Partners Banquet in May 2017.

The Preferred Partner Award is presented annually to recognize the company’s Partners in Success. Recipients are nominated by an individual within the Purchasing, Quality, Manufacturing or Payables divisions of the Jasper Engines & Transmissions organization and are judged on quality, service, fill-rate, response time to a problem, and billing/credit procedures, among other criteria. Approval from all of the above mentioned divisions is required for selection as a Preferred Partner.
