Mining Equipment Manufacturer
The mining of underground mineral and precious metal resources though previously carried out with archaic equipment, quite successfully, rising labor and other infrastructural costs have determined the manufacture of machinery and equipment that is more cost effective. The use of machinery and equipment have also made it possible to have deeper and larger mines, even for the explorations into areas that were considered not feasible owing to the high cost of labor and the hazards that were faced.
This was a need that called for mechanized mining and to achieve the best results numerous manufacturing enterprises started designing and manufacturing machinery and equipment to meet almost every mining need.
Bucyrus International, Inc. whose current location is based in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin since 1893 was a heavy mining equipment manufacturer that was founded in 1880 in Bucyrus, Ohio. From their early production of Steam shovels, they now produce large electric rope shovels, rotary blasthole drills for surface mining and walking draglines. They amalgamated with Erie Steam Shovel Company in 1927 calling the merger Bucyrus-Erie. Bucyrus then merged with the British firm Ruston & Hornsby Ltd., in 1930 forming Ruston- Bucyrus Ltd., in England. Ruston & Hornsby Ltd., having started manufacturing steam excavators in 1874 and with the Bucyrus merger, access to world markets that were not previously possible gave the company added strength. But however in a period of recession Bucyrus sold their share in 1985 of Ruston-Bucyrus. In intensive competition they manufactured hundreds of mining machinery and construction equipment. They Acquired their main competitor Marion Power Shovel in 1997. Bucyrus also acquired the DBT Group from Germany's RAG Group. Equipment is marketed under the brands Bucyrus, Bucyrus-Erie, Marion, and Ransomes & Rapier of Ipswich, England, while DBT complementing the current surface machinery line manufactures underground mining equipment that.
