mining

We know mining.  Our team is comprised of former operators – coal and hardrock, surface and underground, pit and process plant – who understand your needs.  Collectively we have over 250 years of mining operating experience, where we have worked as mine engineers, longwall maintenance foremen, and plant operators.  We not only know how to build the best equipment – we know how to use it.  Thus we always build our designs to ensure the maximum in operability and maintainability. 

Mine environments have changed significantly over the past 30 years – with increased equipment size and horsepower, improved safety standards, and an emphasis on communications and productivity all having major impacts on the design and build of electrical control and distribution equipment.  Voltages are higher, and communications and controls systems are more versatile, connected, and complex than ever.  Our team can help you custom design, build, and maintain equipment that meets your exact needs.  We know MSHA requirements, with MSHA certified instructors and trainers on staff.  Our solutions for surface and underground mining, and process and prep plants too, incorporating the latest in fiber, communications, and PLCs, ensured your mining operations are the most productive around.
