While at the ceremony, iSurf News spoke with Madisonville native and ErMC2 President, Mike Ricci, who explained more on the company.

“We’re a mining engineering firm based in Lexington,” said Ricci. “We’ve been in operation around 6 years, but this is actually the first office outside of Lexington. As of right now, we have about 25 employees counting our co-op students from the University of Kentucky. We have a really good relationship with the University of Kentucky. We also have 10 graduate engineers with the company right now, so it’s a pretty large engineering force. We deal with state and federal permits, and we also do some mine planning, underground mine services such as ventilation and seal construction oversight, and blast analysis—so we can help with just about anything engineering related  that a coal mining company can get into.”

As far as why ErMC2 decided to open a branch in Madisonville, KY, Ricci said that, “Most of our client base is in western Kentucky and we came here to serve the clients better. We can provide better service by being right here with them. Madisonville is basically the dead center of our western Kentucky clients.”

In regards to how the company is run, Ricci mentioned that, “We have quite a casual relationship with our clients. If they need us for a project, they just call us. Very seldom do we actually sign a formal contract with them either. We’ve just established that kind of relationship with a lot of our clients, but it takes a little while to get to that point.”

ErMC2 is located in what was once Young’s formal clothing store in Madisonville, KY (229 Madison Square Drive). To find out more on ErMC2, you may visit their official website at the following address: http://www.ermc2.us/index.php.
