Breaking Rock For Centuries
And that’s just the beginning because Austin Powder also helped clear the paths that helped our country grow—building canals, railroads and highways, and providing coal energy. We’ve been manufacturing explosives since 1833 and we take great pride in playing a major role in the world’s development. And because of our growth, we are even more relevant today than we were in 1833.
Today we manufacture a full line of industrial explosives and accessories and provide technical and blasting services to customers throughout North and South America and in countries around the world and counting. We also service customers in the quarrying, mining, construction and seismic industries, all in the service of continuing to build and improve communities in America and around the world.
