Central Mine Equipment Company was founded in St Louis, Missouri in 1928. Our initial product line included augers, cutters and related accessories for the coal mining industry. In 1962, we introduced our first drill rig, the CME-55.
Today, we design and manufacture a complete line of drilling equipment for the geotechnical, environmental, mineral exploration, and construction industries. CME builds a complete line of hollow-stem and continuous flight augers, auger accessories and sampling systems. We also produce horizontal directional drills, and all-terrain carriers.
In addition to our line of quality-manufactured products, CME is a leading provider of tools, equipment, and supplies for core and rotary drilling, soil sampling, and ground water monitoring.
The key to our success has been product innovation and after-the-sale service. Central Mine Equipment Company holds patents covering everything from auger connections and sampling systems to drill rig safety features. And our experienced in-house sales staff has earned an unsurpassed reputation for filling your tooling and parts orders expediently and correctly.
In order to best serve the needs of our customers, all manufacturing, warehouse and office operations are consolidated at our 210,000 square foot, state-of-the art facility located in St. Louis, Missouri.
