The History of ARI
Nearly 4 decades ago, Bob "BJ" Jeremiah started Aggregate Resource Industries as "BJ Equipment Company." Bob knew that customers needed a single provider of rock drilling and blasting and rock crushing services. Today, ARI's roots are still in Lane County, and its rock drilling and blasting work extends to Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, Montana, Colorado and California. The business is still owned and operated by the Jeremiah family. ARI's projects have ranged from traditional hard rock drilling and blasting in rock quarries and gold mines, dam demolition, portable rock crushing, utility line blasting, communication tower drilling, solar pile foundation drilling, and wind farm foundation blasting. ARI is qualified to perform rock drilling and blasting and rock crushing work under MSHA Part 46 and MSHA Part 48 regulations.
