BucyrusErie was an American surface and underground mining equipment company. It was founded as Bucyrus Foundry and Manufacturing Company in Bucyrus, Ohio in 1880. Bucyrus moved its headquarters to South Milwaukee, Wisconsin in 1893. In 1927, Bucyrus merged with the Erie Steam Shovel Company to form BucyrusErie.
Late in 2013, NPK Construction Equipment entered into a partnership with European mining equipment manufacturer, Hermann Paus Maschinenfabrik, of Emsbüren, Germany. Paus is wellknown throughout Europe, Russia, and South America for their high quality, purpose built mining vehicles.
