At Austin Powder, we know it takes years of training, practice, and oversight from the masters to become a highly-skilled craftsman. These men and women are not merely created, and they are not common. In the explosives industry, watching a blast develop reveals the experience and knowledge of a craftsman who understands the customer’s rock, the geology, and the anomalies. It reveals a proficient use of explosives, timed to the millisecond, that only comes from years of mastering the trade. As the dust settles, it reveals perfect fragmentation; a value-added product that meets the customer’s needs and drives the customer’s bottom line.

Since 1833, Austin Powder’s master craftsmen have been dedicated to the safe and responsible use of explosives.
