Becoming a Leader in the Proppants Industry
Atlas Resin Proppants is a privately held, family-owned business that manufactures resin coated sand proppants for the service segment of the oil and natural gas industry. Atlas Resin Proppants was founded in 2005 as a Limited Partnership. Construction of the Taylor, Wisconsin production facility was completed in 2005. Badger Mining Corporation, one of the principal partners within the partnership, acquired 100% ownership of Atlas in October 2007. The Taylor production facility was expanded and doubled production in 2008. In 2009, the corporate office moved from Tulsa, OK to Taylor. A new production facility was built near the Village of Merrillan, Wisconsin in 2010 and another production facility was built, again, near the Village of Merrillan in 2011.
Our sister company, Badger Mining Corporation is well-known as one of the most experienced and reputable suppliers of raw silica sand proppants to the oil and gas industry. This partnership allowed for exclusive access to their highly sought-after Northern White silica sand to use as our base substrate. To appreciate the value of Badger’s impact on our history, it is good to know Badger’s history.
