About Us

Who We Are

Every day, all around the world, our people help mobilise the vital resources that are essential to progress.

Our story began in 1874, when we first supplied explosives to the Victorian goldfields in Australia. Since then, we have grown to become the world’s leader in blasting and productivity solutions. We are a community of engineers, scientists, technologists, operators, business specialists and on-site crew all working together to support our customers in open cut mines, underground operations, quarrying, construction, and oil and gas projects. From the production and supply of explosives and initiation systems, to our suite of cutting-edge digital solutions and comprehensive range of blasting services, we help extract and monitor resources safely, efficiently and responsibly.

Every employee plays a role in our success. By working together, we ignite new opportunities for each other, our customers, the communities where we work and our shareholders, while minimising our impact on the environment.

To meet the expectations of our stakeholders, we are reimagining the way we work. We continue to invest in our core solutions, while advancing the innovation of our new digital and automation technologies. This is helping us solve industry challenges and operate with precision in everything we do.

Our people are fundamental to everything we do and it’s their diversity and expertise that makes the difference. Above all, we work as one team and are always guided by our values.
