The Chamber received over 300 nominations for its annual award ceremony and awarded JRL Coal its highest honour, Business of the Year.
"As we started this venture, we wanted to develop a company that would be successful, and also seen as a pillar in the community. This award represents the strong partnership we have made with the Harlan community," said JRL Coal Founder and CEO, Timothy Lusby.
JRL began mining in Harlan County in May 2017. As of today, JRL has added over 220 new jobs to the community and has shipped over 1.1 million t of coal from its facilities in Harlan County.
"What we have been able to achieve would not be possible without the stellar work ethic of the team we have assembled in Harlan. Our team is one of our strongest assets as a company, and I am proud to be a part of such a great organisation," said Lusby.
