Achievement in Customer Satisfaction

2022 American Business Award in Metals and Mining

The ABA judges recognized Newberry’s exemplary commitment to their customers. After experiencing tremendous growth in 2021, Newberry overcame the challenge of providing their award-winning level of customer service on a now larger scale. Through strategic implementation of the Entrepreneurial Operating System (EOS), key technology, and the development of customer-centric order and delivery systems, Newberry is committed to and delivered customer satisfaction. An astounding 100% of Newberry customers surveyed in 2021 reported being “Very Satisfied” with Newberry, up from 79% in 2018.

Judges said:

“Process improvement, significantly faster turnaround times and making the client relationship a partnership by planning together and creating a personal touch is a big differentiator.”

“This is a story of customer understanding driving success.”

The ABA also recognized Newberry Tanks’ achievement in the face of crippled supply chains, labor shortages, rising steel prices, and transportation delays. Instead of bending, the company placed significant investment in their workforce, facilities, technology, and new programs, paving the way to become an industry-leading steel tank manufacturer. Newberry’s welder turnover rate remained extremely low, and the company implemented a “Tank Tracker” process to give customers ultimate flexibility in the order process and delivery. In Newberry’s 2021 customer survey, commitment was mentioned as Newberry’s defining strength.

Judges noted:

“Newberry has had significant growth and maintenance during such a traumatic time for the US especially within the supply chain.”

“The company has implemented best-in-class project and manufacturing processes and adopted an unconventional approach for maintaining and retaining welding talent.”

Newberry Tanks President and COO, Matt Kohnke, commented, “Thank you to the judges at the American Business Awards, our clients, and most of all, the team at Newberry. It is especially gratifying for the company to be recognized for our hard work in customer satisfaction.”
