WV: Mining Repair Specialists Expands Logan County Operation
13 Feb, 2013
Mining Repair Specialists LLC is constructing a larger facility and adding advanced equipment to its mining equipment and manufacturing business in Holden. The company demolished a building with 18,000 subdivided feet — one of five buildings on the site — and is constructing a new 20,000-square-foot structure with more open space. The new facility is expected to be operational by April 2013. The company is also transitioning to new advanced equipment, including robotic welders, laser torches, computer numerical control (CNC) boring mill, CNC lathe and CNC machining center. The expansion represents an investment of $2 million. Mining Repair Specialists has served the underground mining industry with mining equipment repairs since 1987. The enhanced facilities will enable the company to extend its services to other industries as well. Mining Repair Specialists employs 33 workers.
