The History of ARI
Nearly 4 decades ago, Bob "BJ" Jeremiah started our company as BJ Equipment Company when he saw a need for customers to have a single provider of rock drilling, blasting and crushing services. Today, ARI's roots are still in Lane County, and our rock drilling and blasting work extends to Alaska, Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Nevada, and California. The business is still owned and operated by the Jeremiah family. Our 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, and wind farm foundation blasting. We are qualified to perform rock drilling and blasting and rock crushing work under MSHA Part 46 and MSHA Part 48 regulations.
