Home / About Dyno Nobel / About Us
We know our industry. And we’re driving new ways of thinking. Our founder, Alfred Nobel, changed the world with his invention of dynamite and the detonator in the mid-1800′s and changed it again when he founded the world famous Nobel Prizes. In fact, Dyno Nobel traces its roots back to William Bickford’s invention of Safety Fuse in 1831 and Alfred Nobel’s legacy of safety and innovation.
Our safety standards are among the highest in the industry. We rigorously apply internationally recognized safety standards at all our locations and in everything we do from storage and transport to handling and use.
Dyno Nobel Facts
From 1984 until 2005 Dyno Nobel, a Norwegian-owned explosives company established in the 1800’s, combined the world’s most competent explosives companies into a single global organization.
New owners sold parts of the business at the end of 2005 and, now, Dyno Nobel operates primarily in North America and Australia with planned re-entry into selected international markets.
Today, this wealth of explosives expertise is embedded in Dyno Nobel employees and manufacturing facilities where producing effective explosives products and providing professional blasting services with an emphasis on safety is our legacy and our future.
We operate in several different regions headquartered as follows:
- Dyno Nobel Asia Pacific in Brisbane, Australia
- Dyno Nobel Americas & International in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA
- Incitec Pivot Limited, parent company of Dyno Nobel, in Melbourne, Australia
