Our service plants, which are located near customers' mineral deposits and mining sites, feature all the equipment necessary for safe, high-quality, productive operations. The most noteworthy include: storage silos for ammonium nitrate and emulsions, magazines for storing high explosives and initiation systems, equipment for transporting raw materials, support offices and mobile manufacturing units. The latter are specially designed to transport raw materials (ammonium nitrate and oil) to be mixed on-site where they will be used. Mobile manufacturing units are custom designed and equipped for each mine, according to the most stringent safety standards.
