Why Choose Massey?

Why Choose A Career At Massey? It’s As Simple As 1-2-3-4

1. Job Safety
Massey has the best documented and most comprehensive safety program in the coal industry. Massey has also pioneered many safety innovations, such as reflective clothing, dozer submarine kits, and a new miner proximity detection device, because returning home safely is the most important benefit any company can provide. We invest heavily in the safety of our members because safety is at the heart of what we do every day.

2. Opportunity
Massey has announced significant expansion plans and intends to increase production by 27% from 2007 to 2010. In addition, Massey invests millions of dollars each year in new equipment and new mining technology. Today, Massey companies have the most modern and well-maintained equipment available in the mining industry to help make your job safer and more productive.

3. Security
In the past decade, Massey has acquired far more reserves than it has mined. Today, Massey has more than 2 billion tons of reserves and more reserves in Central Appalachia than our five largest competitors combined.

4. Community
Our view of community at Massey is simple: “We live here, we work here, we give here.” That focus guides our philanthropic and community-based volunteer projects. Massey is an active and generous supporter of a wide variety of educational, environmental, recreational, historic preservation, arts education and health care programs that improve the quality of life in Central Appalachia.
