AMR PEMCO, Inc. (AMR PEMCO) is proud to announce its newest distribution partner, BMT Products, LLC of Price, UT (BMT). BMT will exclusively represent AMR PEMCO’s mining products and services in the territory of Colorado, Utah, western Wyoming and eastern Montana.
In 1975, Robert (Bob) Graf founded American Mine Research, Inc. (AMR) to support the U.S. coal mining industry’s need for enhanced safety and productivity through the development of the pilotless ground check monitor. Located in Rocky Gap, VA, AMR has since sold over 50,000 circuits of the pilotless monitor throughout the world. Over the past 40+ years, AMR has continued to expand its product and service offerings to serve not only the U.S. coal mining industry, but also the metal/nonmetal mining, tunneling, quarry/aggregates, and oil and gas industries across the globe. Where required, AMR’s products are US and internationally approved, and always designed with the mindset of the ground monitor’s original charge: improve our customer’s operational safety, productivity and efficiency.
Founded in 1960, PEMCO began by manufacturing DC power supplies, rectifiers, and AC/DC products for the U.S. coal mining industry. PEMCO built a reputation of electrical excellence in the coal industry, and similar to AMR, diversified into the metal/nonmetal mining, oil and gas, utility, power generation, transit, and nuclear industries. Since its inception, PEMCO has and continues to be known for its reliable, robust and custom electrical solutions.
AMR and PEMCO merged in late 2016. The combined company now designs and manufactures a diverse range of monitoring, control, communications and power distribution products for the mining industry. Collectively, AMR PEMCO now offers: ground check/fault monitors, electronic circuit breakers, speed sensors and tip switches, atmospheric (gas) monitoring, wireless communications, personnel/equipment tracking, and collision avoidance systems, power centers, substations, dry-type transformers, industrial control buildings, and power distribution/PLC panels. AMR PEMCO operates two modern facilities: a 31,000 sq. ft. facility in Rocky Gap, VA, just off I-77, and a 120,000 sq. ft. facility located in Bluefield, VA.
“We are thrilled to add BMT Products, LLC to our team of distribution partners in the U.S.,” said David Graf, President of AMR PEMCO. “BMT has an excellent reputation and long-standing relationships with all of the major mining companies in the West. They are driven and provide excellent product support as well as customer service to their many mining customers. We look forward to working with them to bring that same level of service across our entire product line,” Mr. Graf added.
“BMT Products is excited to team up with AMR PEMCO to support the Western US soft rock operations. With distribution points in Utah and Montana we will be able offer the service needed to handle today’s market conditions,” said Kasey Petersen, General Manager of BMT.
