Industrial Resources will celebrate our 70-year anniversary Sunday, Nov. 27.

We have been providing state-of-the-art bulk material handling systems and coal preparation plants for our customers since 1946. We are a turnkey contractor that:

  • Designs
  • Engineers
  • Fabricates and
  • Constructs

custom facilities such as overland conveyors, transshipment facilities, material handling systems and preparation plants.

“As president of Industrial Resources, celebrating 70 years in business is a true example of the quality of people we have had within our organization over the years to achieve such a significant milestone,” said Phil Burnside, Industrial president. “Each and every one of our employees has contributed to the success of our business over the years during good times and bad.”

We Have Successfully...

  • Completed more than 5,000 projects over the past 70 years
  • Been certified as an American Institute of Steel Construction fabrication facility

All of our projects are fabricated within the guidelines and procedures of the AISC requirements. 

“This certification puts our fabrication shop a step above all other fabrication facilities that have not achieved this level of recognition,” Burnside said.

“With the current EPA regulations on coal and the recent downturn within the coal industry, Industrial has explored and opened new doors within the aggregate and cement businesses,” Burnside said. “However, we are always available to provide our services for any coal related customers regardless of the market conditions, and we are available when needed.”

We Also Have the Ability...

  • To quickly respond to any emergency situation that may occur in your plant with the commitment of getting your company back in operation to minimize your loss.

“As a business in the industrial world, you have to be ready to react upon someone's intentions or unexpected needs,” Burnside said. “With our knowledge, expertise and 70 years of business behind us, we are the service company you need to call.”

We are dedicated to building custom solutions to your problems. Industrial Resources is headquartered in Fairmont and has an engineering office division in Carnegie, Pennsylvania, along with an electrical office division in Pleasant Valley.
