In the early 1980’s, Burrell was gaining a great deal of attention and market share in the mining industry by selling concrete and strength enhancing mortar products approved for underground use. The volume of business was so consistent that Burrell Mining Products, Inc. was formed October 14, 1984. Our expertise was noticed and appreciated by the US Bureau of Mines who then initiated a collaborative relationship with us. At the request of the Bureau of Mines; Burrell carried out trials that combined out expertise in concrete block production with our family of proprietary fibered mortar mixes. These trials resulted in the manufacturing of the first fiber reinforced roof support block - Fibercrib®. Our research and testing continues to yield outstanding results with innovations such as The Omega Block, The CAN® and Turbo Props to name a few. We continue to innovate with new products and novel applications to this day in mines with encumbered spaces and large openings.
In its basic form; everything in this world that benefits mankind is either mined or farmed. Burrell Mining’s mission is to lead through innovation, to competently support those who extract raw materials from the earth for a living. It’s not just about being a reliable provider of quality products to the companies whom we do business with; it’s about the men and women who go underground daily to have confidence in us so that they can earn their livelihoods safely. Those individuals count on us to support the mine roof in the toughest of conditions and to keep air coursing through mine entries. We do not take these responsibilities lightly; it fuels our drive to diligently apply our mining expertise; from manufacturing quality to timely deliveries so that economic and safety advantages may be attained for all parties concerned.
