Mining Industry Promotional Items

Employees and Prospects Will “Dig” These Promotional Products

The American mining industry is booming, with significant growth in crude oil and natural gas production in the last several years. The increased need for many other minerals such as copper and salt are also fueling increased revenues.

That growth is accompanied by an increased need for promotional products chosen uniquely for that industry. Suppliers work hard to keep their brands visible and important to mining companies. That requires good options for trade show handouts and other marketing purposes.

Mining companies themselves seek productivity, of course, but are also extremely committed to safety. That creates an important need for ways to recognize and reward employees for following safe procedures and achieving safety milestones. That creates the need for items to be used as individual awards or group recognition for achieving those milestones.

Promotional Items That Will Strike Gold with Recipients

As you might expect, trust and loyalty are especially important in the mining industry, between suppliers and companies, and between employers and corporate managers and executives. The use of promotional items can help build and reinforce those relationships. But items chosen thoughtfully in consideration of the industry and individuals involved mean even more.

Today I’d like to share a dozen excellent ideas for promotional items that can be used for these purposes.

  1. 5-in-1 Multi-Purpose Tool

This is seriously handy – with a compass, shovel, saw, pick and axe. If you can’t do it with this, it just doesn’t need doing. Great for workers, or for promising prospects.  So it’s a hard-working marketing tool, too.

  1. Pickaxe Shaped USB Drive

A fun and memorable nod to the industry. Helpful and versatile—and available in storage capacities from 16-64 GB. They’ll really dig those gigs!

  1. Intrinsically Safe Flashlight (CREE® XP-E)

Waterproof, shatterproof, and explosion-proof for hazardous locations and situations. Mining needs safe and durable equipment. This one makes a great recognition award for safe practices.

  1. Pickaxe Lapel Pin

Pickaxe Lapel Pin Mining Industry Promotional Items

By respected Marken Design. It’s available in goldtone, silvertone, and antique pewter finishes, up to 5/8” in length. A classic but inexpensive way to recognize employees and build team spirit.

  1. Miner’s Watch

A uniquely special and appropriate gift. Designed “Down Under” for the mining industry in the Australian Outback. Water-resistant with luminous hands and hour markings. An ideal way to honor a special employee’s achievement of a safety milestone.

  1. Chocolate Axe (.48 oz.)

Wrapped in a cello bag with ribbon and label carrying your imprint. Available in four different chocolate flavors. Employees and trade-show guests will love them. Better stock up on these – chop chop!

  1. Pickaxe Inkbend Standard Bent Pen

A full-size ballpoint bent into a beloved and recognizable industry-related shape. Black ink (or blue if preferred). Opaque or transparent styles available, with your imprint on the barrel. A big attention-getter at a not-very-big price.

  1. Rechargeable Pivot Stand 10W Worklight & Powerbank

Few promotional items are welcomed by recipients as much as powerbanks, and we have plenty of types and styles available.  We especially like this one because it includes a handy worklight (as does our Juice Box 44 Halo). Max usability, with powerful magnets and multiple-angle stand. Includes a micro USB charging cable.

  1. Unisex Solid Genuine Cowhide Leather Cruiser Jacket

Build camaraderie and team pride with all your miners when they achieve a big safety milestone. Award them this handsome jacket with Nehru collar, full lining, two zippered exterior, and one interior pocket. Choose this leather jacket or from many others we have available, or pick your logoed apparel from our extensive line of name brand promotional apparel.

  1. Micro-mink Sherpa Blanket

Generous 50” x 60” size, available in 11 colors. Faux micro-mink on one side, faux lambswool on the other. Blankets provide a warm and cozy reward or promotional marketing item that will appeal to everyone (including the women) in the mining industry. This is just one of many styles in our incredible selection that runs from jersey knit blankets to cashmere.

  1. Custom Reusable Bags

For simple environmental sensibility, reusable bags are more popular today than ever. There are literally hundreds of styles, but custom drawstring bags are a great fit for miners. We can help you design one that is completely custom to your business. Your employees or other recipients will use it again and again because it’s so useful. And they will be promoting your mine or supporting business each time. ROI is in the bag!

  1. Go TOTALLY Custom

We can also work with you to come up with promotional marketing or safety item that will blow their minds….and promote your mine! Perhaps it’s a unique custom USB drive or an engraved rock hammer. Better yet, let’s create a customized promotional kit.

With promotional kitting, we can put together a kit that uniquely reflects you, your company and your employees. It can include varieties of items within food, apparel, electronics, or a blend of several. The right choices will elevate your gift or award from being “memorable” to being “unforgettable.”

Add Ease and Efficiency

When you consider the many occasions in which you might use items for promotional marketing, plus the management of a safety award program, it sounds a bit complicated. How can you stay organized and save both time and money?

That one’s easy: set up a Corporate Kiosk Company Store. Corporate Kiosk is our advanced e-procurement technology that helps you streamline the process and allow you to track (and your people to access) safety equipment and promotional items in multiple locations as needed.

You can allow authorized employees (you decide who and how many) to select preapproved items as needed. This not only simplifies things, but greatly increases your consistency and cost control.
