Orica Celebrates 150 Years

Proudly, we celebrate 150 years of operations.

Founded in June 1874 as a supplier of explosives to the Victorian gold fields in Australia, Orica has grown to be one of the world’s leading mining and infrastructure solution providers, with more than 12,500 employees operating in over 100 countries around the globe.

We have pioneered research-led innovation, a drive for market leadership and support for our customers, communities and local industry. We have achieved all this while maintaining our proud traditions of safety, respect, team work, integrity and excellence – all enshrined in our values today.

Throughout the year we will recognise this exciting milestone with our people, partners, customers and communities, and take the opportunity to reflect on our proud history, while looking towards the bright future of our iconic organisation.
