American Mine Research, Inc. (AMR) and Hughes Supply Company (HSC) have signed an agreement for HSC to become a new distributor for AMR, targeting selective mining customers in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Kentucky, Virginia and Maryland. HSC will handle the sale of AMR products including: Atmospheric Monitoring Sensors and Systems, Ground Monitors, and Circuit Breakers along with Tilt and Speed Switches.
“I believe that this agreement with HSC will enhance our abilities to sell more products to new customers. HSC brings 27 years of outstanding service and sales in the mining industry. We look forward to working with them and increasing our coverage in these areas,” stated Bob Saxton, General Manager for AMR.
HSC is a diversified West Virginia-based company comprised of three divisions: Industrial, Building Automation & Controls and Mechanical Services. With three offices located in Beckley, Hurricane and Morgantown, West Virginia, HSC was established in 1985 to supply electrical and communications products to local mining and industrial companies. In 2008, HSC acquired two local companies and added electrical engineering, automation and controls, and tools groups to their industrial division’s offerings.
AMR is excited about the new partnership with HSC and looks forward to continuing the tradition of supplying state of the art equipment that enhance both safety and productivity for the mining industry.
