Recently we were pleasantly surprised to receive a very generous donation by the JLG Supplier Quality team from the Hagerstown office.
JLG Industries is a subsidiary of the Oshkosh Corporation headquartered in Wisconsin. In addition to JLG and the quality lifts they design & build, Oshkosh Corporation has a reputation for quality heavy-duty products that serve our defense industry, fire & rescue operations and other commercial products.
Each year, Oshkosh Corporation has a global competition where their team members compete in four categories: Delighting Our Customers, Human Development, Innovative Excellence, and Environmental Responsibility.
The JLG Supplier Quality team’s quality improvement project competed in the “Delighting Our Customers” category. Having gone through Site Level and Segment Level competition, the team eventually won second place and received the Oshkosh Excellence Award in the final Global Level competition!
From L-R: Raj Kambalimath, Haibo Li, Becky Shank, Dale Baumbaugh and Sonny Shank
The prize for winning second place was a $7,500 donation to a local non-profit of choice. And we are so pleased and thankful to have been the recipient of that prize. JLG employees Dale Baumbaugh, Haibo Li and Raj Kambalimath presented The Hope Center with the prize winning check on behalf of the team from JLG and the Oshkosh Corporation.
We cannot thank the JLG team enough for donating this prize to The Hope Center. This gift from their company will benefit so many people, especially as we are preparing to make major improvements to our dining room and food services programs to help feed and reach hundreds of people in our area.
Congrats to the hard-working team from JLG who excelled at the Oshkosh competition! Thank you for caring and helping your neighbors in need!
