February 8, 2023
MARINETTE, WI – Winsert has earned recognition again as a Partner-level supplier in the John Deere Achieving Excellence Program. The Partner-level status is Deere & Company’s highest supplier rating. Winsert has received the “Partner-level Supplier” status for 12 consecutive years and is a two-time inductee into the John Deere Supplier Hall of Fame. In 2018, Winsert was also chosen as the John Deere Power Systems Supplier of the Year. The Marinette, Wisconsin-based company was selected for the honors in recognition of its dedication to providing products and service of outstanding quality as well as its commitment to continuous improvement.
“Winsert is honored to receive Partner status from John Deere again,” Winsert president Mark Coduti said. “The organization works hard for John Deere and an award like this confirms that we are doing the right things year after year.”
Winsert is a supplier of valve seat inserts to John Deere’s operations in Waterloo, IA, Springfield, MO, Torreon, Coahuila, Mexico, and Saran, France.
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 to provide a supplier evaluation and feedback process that promotes continuous improvement.
