Kondex Corporation has been selected as a recipient of a John Deere Supplier Innovation Award for 2019. The award is presented to a select group of suppliers who have demonstrated innovation in a product or service they provide to John Deere.
Award selections are based on four factors – creativity, feasibility, collaboration, and bottom-line impact. John Deere created the Supplier Innovation Awards in 2009 to promote innovation in the company’s supply base and recognize suppliers who think creatively.
Kondex earned this award for its Kondex RevolutionTM concaves, which are high-performance components used in combines to improve harvest capacity, as well as grain quality and retention. These concaves are supplied to John Deere’s Harvester Works operation in Moline, Illinois as a factory-installed option, and are also available as service parts through John Deere dealers nationwide.
“We are extremely honored to have earned this prestigious award,” said Kondex President Keith Johnson. “Kondex has been a supplier to John Deere since 1978, with many partnership successes over the years. To now have a Kondex-branded product in their combines is significant in and of itself. Being recognized for the hard work and benefits this innovation brings motivates our team to continue seeking ways to make a difference in the agricultural industry as we fulfill our mission of helping to feed and fuel the world.”
