Brady Mining Announces Name Change to US Synthetic Mining and Appoints New Regional Sales Representative for Eastern United States

Leading diamond bit manufacturer changes name and adds senior sales professional to support growth of company's Viper roof-bolt bits and other underground mining products.

OREM, Utah, Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --Brady Mining, leading supplier of diamond roof-bolt products for underground mining operations, today announced a name change to US Synthetic Mining. The company also announced the appointment of Danny Price as a regional sales manager for the eastern United States.

US Synthetic Mining will continue to support all existing customers, operating under the US Synthetic Mining name. The goal of this change is to leverage the engineering strengths and marketing outreach of US Synthetic Corporation. US Synthetic Corporation is a leading supplier of diamond technology for oil and gas drilling. The company is an American manufacturing company founded in 1978. US Synthetic's technology and engineering focus has made it the leader in polycrystalline diamond products with extensive experience and advanced diamond technologies for the mining and energy industries. Due to its extreme hardness, wear resistance and thermal conductivity, US Synthetic's diamond products are used in a wide range of applications and are ideal for hard roof conditions in underground mining and extreme operating conditions in other industries.

US Synthetic Mining will continue to advance the technology in polycrystalline diamond tools for underground mining, including the family of Viper HR vacuum roof-bolt bits. In addition to its current technologies, US Synthetic is also conducting research and development projects on other diamond applications in underground mining. 

"As we continue to grow and to diversify our products within the mining industry, we wanted to better identify our products with the superior quality and technology built into US Synthetic products," said Russ Myers, Managing Director, US Synthetic Mining. "As we focus on these growth opportunities, it also made sense to add a seasoned mining professional to help us introduce the value created through diamond technologies in new applications and in our Viper roof bits in underground mining."

Price joins the US Synthetic team with more than 10 years of experience in underground mining. Prior to his appointment at US Synthetic, Price worked in underground and management positions at a number of eastern mines.  From his extensive experience in underground mining, Price understands the challenges facing US Synthetic customers, in reducing costs while accelerating the pace of coal development and in dealing with unforgiving roof conditions that make mining difficult and expensive. Danny is based in West Virginia and will serve the eastern United States.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
