Eugene, Ore. – Johnson Crushers International, Inc. (KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens) took home the prestigious Astec Industries Chairman’s Award in recognition of its outstanding performance in 2014.

The Astec Industries Chairman’s Award was established in February 2014 to annually recognize the top-performing individual subsidiary of Astec Industries. The award was given March 3 during ConExpo-Con/Agg in Las Vegas, Nev.

“It was an honor to receive the award on behalf of JCI associates,” said Jeff Elliott, president of Johnson Crushers International, one of three manufacturing facilities that make up KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens. “It couldn’t have been done without the collective efforts of every associate in our company, and the contributions of the sales and marketing organizations from KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens and Astec Aggregate and Mining Group. ”

Ben Brock, CEO and president of Astec Industries, said Johnson Crushers International separated itself as “the best of the best” for 2014.

Elliott credits the strengthening of the manufacturing facility’s safety culture as a key element to its success. The three manufacturing facilities that make up KPI-JCI and Astec Mobile Screens also recently achieved an all-time sales record since the company’s inception in 1928.

“We look forward to a successful 2014,” Elliott said.
