Strata Worldwide is very pleased to announce the opening of a new facility in Huntington, Utah. This location will give Strata a stronger local presence, along with teams of knowledgeable personnel that can service customers more effectively. Strata will offer sales, service and support for all its product lines from the Huntington facility, but it will have a deeper focus on expanding the company’s contract mining services and electronic safety products divisions.

Shawn Sitterud, formally the manager of Modern Mine Safety Supply, has been hired as the Western Operations Manager. He brings extensive mining, mechanics, service and training knowledge to the position, as well as nearly a decade of business management experience.

“It is a privilege to join Strata Worldwide as it unveils its new western expansion, and I am very excited to represent such a well-respected company in the mining industry,” stated Sitterud. “I have had the opportunity to work with Strata personnel over the years, and have always found them to be very professional individuals with high integrity and expert knowledge and work performance.”

Just a few offerings Strata Worldwide will provide from Huntington:

  • Refuge chamber refits, services and inspections
  • Equipment, tools and materials for mining services
  • Proximity detection installation, service and support
  • Communication systems and atmospheric monitoring installation, service and support

“We wanted to invest in the western United States’ mining territories and better serve our customers by establishing a brick-and-mortar facility with full-time personnel,” Mike Berube, President and CEO of Strata Worldwide, stated. “With the addition of Shawn and a growing team, we believe that, in addition to our existing roof control business in the west, we will also significantly increase our mine services and safety presence and offerings.”
