MARINETTE, WI – Winsert, Inc. has earned recognition as a Partner-level supplier for 2018 in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program.  The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating.  Winsert has received “Partner-level Supplier” status for eight consecutive years and was inducted into the John Deere Supplier Hall of Fame in 2015.  The Marinette, Wisconsin-based company 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.


Winsert is a supplier of valve seat inserts to John Deere’s operation in Waterloo, IA, Springfield, MO, Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico, and Saran, France.


Trisha Dickinson Lemery, Winsert’s president & CEO, is proud of the Winsert family for this accomplishment.  “This is Winsert’s eighth consecutive year of being honored as a “Partner-level” supplier to John Deere.  This would not be possible without our committed workforce who work hard each and every day, producing high quality, innovative and affordable engine components for John Deere."
