“Considering the unprecedented challenges that global supply chains faced in 2020, we’re especially proud of this recognition by John Deere and the positive results that we achieved together. Congratulations and thank you to our talented experts across the globe for your hard work and impressive impact,” said Jordan Kass, president of TMC. “We’ve enjoyed a long-standing strategic relationship with John Deere and look forward to continuing our journey together during this very transformative time for supply chains.”

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.
