Prairie Machine & Parts Mfg. (PMP), a manufacturer and designer of mining equipment, has acquired PapaBravo Innovations. The acquisition of PapaBravo Innovations will enhance PMP’s product portfolio that PMP presently offers. PMP will continue to build the same mining products that have been the pillar of their business, but the addition of the electric vehicles and drive technology from PapaBravo will enable PMP to better serve their customers and broaden their portfolio of innovative mining solutions.

He also stated, “We will continue to build quality mining equipment for that is the cornerstone of our business, and the electric vehicles will be a really nice addition.”
Patric Byrns, the President of PapaBravo and the founder of the company commented that, “I feel there is great synergy between what we have done at PapaBravo and what Prairie Machine has done over the last 30 years. The future is very exciting as we combine these two innovative companies and I look forward to significant future growth through our continued efforts of cutting edge, technological solutions for underground mining. Our combined resources position us to become a significant global influence in improving underground mining safety.”
