Alpha Natural Resources is a large American producer of metallurgical and thermal coal. It also provides services relating to equipment repairs, road construction and logistics (terminals). It doesn't produce all of the coal it sells, some is purchased and resold. Alpha operates in Virginia, West Virginia, Kentucky and Pennsylvania. Clients include electricity producers and steel manufacturers (metallurgical coal is used industrially while thermal is the form of coal used to generate power). The 2009 takeover of Foundation Coal also gave it the Cumberland Mine Railroad to transport coal in Pennsylvania. - Source: Wikipedia
