Past

Basic Management, Inc. (BMI) is proud of the significant role this site has played in history. It has helped a nation protect its freedom; provided thousands of jobs; played a significant role in the creation of Henderson, Nevada; contributed to the global and local economy; helped put man on the moon; and provided products that have made our lives easier and safer. Companies associated with BMI have pioneered such products as lightweight titanium metal, chlorine for water disinfection, and manganese, the dry cell energy source in batteries.

BMI has proven to be a leader on many fronts and continues to do so with its voluntary effort to restore and redevelop land that was used for many years to make a difference in our lives.
