Miner Enterprises, Inc., has earned the Supplier Evaluation Committee Award (SECO) from TTX Company for the 27th consecutive year, achieving Supplier Excellence status each year since the program’s inception.

TTX, which maintains a fleet of more than 230,000 railcars, uses the annual award to recognize suppliers who meet the company’s “rigorous standards for cost effectiveness, on-time delivery, service excellence, quality and administration.” Award recipients are designated by a committee whose members are directly involved in overseeing railcar component purchases and product performance.

“We are humbled and grateful to have earned the prestigious TTX SECO award for the 32nd time,” said Ric Biehl, President and General Manager of Miner Enterprises. “It’s considered one of our industry’s most significant recognitions. Every year, we strive to meet and surpass the extremely high bar for performance and reliability that TTX—and its customers—expect from us.”

With nearly 130 years of experience in railcar equipment design and manufacturing, Geneva, Ill.-based Miner Enterprises describes itself as “one of the industry’s top suppliers of draft gears, brake beams, gates, constant-contact side bearings, and other high-performance components.” The company’s products are currently used across North America and railroads worldwide.
