Committed to building the future.
Warrior is a U.S.-based, environmentally, and socially minded supplier to the global steel industry. We are dedicated entirely to mining non-thermal metallurgical coal used as a critical component of steel production by metal manufacturers in Europe, South America, and Asia. Warrior is a large-scale, low-cost producer and exporter of premium quality metallurgical coal, also known as hard-coking coal (HCC), operating highly efficient longwall operations in its underground mines based in Alabama. The HCC that Warrior produces from the Blue Creek coal seam contains very low sulfur, has strong coking properties and is of a similar quality to coal referred to as the premium HCC produced in Australia. The premium nature of Warrior’s HCC makes it ideally suited as a base feed coal for steelmakers and results in price realizations.
Operating safely is a top priority for Warrior. We are committed to the wellbeing of our employees and the continued enhancement of a safety culture, ensuring that all employees return home safely to their families every day.
We believe that long-term success requires a commitment to mine safety, environmental stewardship, and investing in our employees and the communities where we operate. We conduct business ethically and with transparency, adhering to best practices in corporate governance.

Safety is our top core value. Some of the deepest mines on earth demand the highest standards and the welfare of our workers takes precedence above all else. We have a culture that goes above and beyond compliance. Through the tools of prevention and attention, we are able to eliminate potential hazards before they begin. Through a top-down, bottom-up system, we ensure that every employee can voice concerns that will be taken seriously and acted upon with immediacy. We place people above production every time and will not hesitate to halt operations at the first signs of risk to our team. Safety is our priority, with data that demonstrates our commitment. Our incident rate has consistently been over 20% better than the U.S. industry rate for underground mining.
