About Austin Powder

Much has changed since the early days, when the five Austin brothers handled the mill production and operations. Today, Austin Powder is a multi-million dollar enterprise, consisting of a number of partner companies and business units, and employing thousands of people worldwide.

The reason for Austin’s success is the ability to adapt and diversify our offerings into various markets. With the advances in mining, infrastructure and exploration, Austin Powder continues to evolve in order to be a valued supplier and partner to our clients. Our commitment revolves around safety, responsibility and sustainability. These are core principles that have been passed down from the original founders of our company, and still remain true today.

We are proud of our heritage, and proud of being an independently owned, elite full-service explosives solution. We are Austin Powder.


Austin Powder has been making explosives since 1833…

and we take great pride in playing a major role in America’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 America and around the world. We also service customers in the quarrying, mining, construction and oil & gas industries.
