PRODUCTS & EXPERTISE
The Washington Companies are diversified into several important commercial and industrial sectors, providing the underlying services to keep commerce moving.
By sea or, land, our freight shipping capabilities span across the globe. Our dedicated team of logistics professionals ensure timeliness and care when handling your cargo. With the Pacific Northwest’s most expansive railway shipping network, Montana Rail Link and the Southern Railway operate over 1,000 miles of railroad track, servicing hundreds of businesses that rely on us to move their products through domestic and international markets. Our railway locomotives and Seaspan’s barges tow thousands of tons of construction aggregate, wooden materials, minerals, grain, and heavy machinery annually. Washington interests, Atlas Corp. and Aviation Partners, extend into global asset management and aviation technology.
Montana Resources operates an open pit copper and molybdenum mine in Butte, Montana. The operation comprises the Continental Mine, crushers and a concentrator facility where tons of raw ore are processed into high-quality metal concentrates. We serve an international market for these important metals. Minimizing environmental impact and respecting the land we rely on is one of our top priorities. Montana Resources practices concurrent reclamation, recovering the land to its original state while mining continues. The result creates grassy rolling hills inhabited by deer and wildlife. Helping local economies thrive is essential to our mission. Wages and taxes paid and local and statewide purchases average more than $100 million annually.
