An American-made Rescue in Chile
The world is celebrating the rescue of 33 Chilean miners trapped underground for more than two months.
USA Today ran a series of articles on the happy occasion, including a piece on the rescue being supported by American firms.
It was Schramm, a West Chester, Pa.-based company "whose drill rig bored the rescue hole at the San José Mine." Another U.S. company based in Pennsylvania, Center Rock, "developed the specialized drill bits that ground through a half-mile of tough quartzite and silica." And Aramark "devised a way to get vacuum-packed hot food down the narrow shaft" of the rescue tunnel.
