In the early 1980’s, Burrell began to expand by selling concrete and mortar products approved for underground use in the mining industry. This new venture created the foundation for Burrell Mining Products, Inc., established on October 17, 1984. In addition to plants in Pennsylvania, West Virginia, and Utah, Burrell expanded its mining operation in 1996 with two new locations in Australia through a partnership with Adelaide Brighton, one of that country’s leading integrated construction materials and lime producers.
