Deere & Co. has inducted Camso Inc. into the Supplier Hall of Fame in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. The company also was honored as a partner-level supplier for 2017. A company is inducted into the hall of fame status after earning the partner-level rating — John Deere's highest supplier rating — for five consecutive years.
Deere & Co. says Camso was selected for the honor in recognition of its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality, as well as its commitment to continuous improvement.
Camso employees accepted the recognition during formal ceremonies held April 17, 2018, in Bettendorf, Iowa. The company supplies agricultural tracks and track systems to John Deere.
Suppliers who participate in the Achieving Excellence program are evaluated annually in several key performance categories, including quality, cost management, delivery, technical support and wavelength, which is a measure of responsiveness. John Deere Supply Management created the program in 1991 as a way to evaluate its suppliers.
