JLG wins government supplier award

The U.S. government’s aviation supply chain manager honored JLG Industries as one of its best suppliers at an award ceremony held earlier this month. The company accepted a gold medal from Navy Rear Adm. Mike Lyden, commander of the supply center. To qualify for the award, companies must meet stringent quality delivery requirements established by the Defense Logistics Agency. A computerized system collects a vendor’s past performance data and translates it into a numeric score, ranging from zero to 100. To be eligible, suppliers must have shipped 10 or more contract lines for the Defense Supply Center Richmond during a 12-month rating period. To qualify for a gold medal, a company must have a score of 100 and a Defense Logistics Agency rating of 95 or better. DSCR is the Defense Logistics Agency’s aviation supply chain manager. DSCR’s primary customers are the Army, Air Force, Navy and Marines. The center also supports other government agencies, such as the U.S. Postal Service, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, U.S. Forestry Service and Department of Transportation.
