Jasper, Indiana-based EMS firm Kimball Electronics Inc. was recently presented with a Category Partner Award by customer Cummins Inc. for its "superior performance with a commitment to deliver value."

KE representatives received the award during a periodic business review at Cummins' world headquarters in Columbus, Indiana.
