Austin Powder Limited


About Austin Powder Limited

Austin Powder Limited – APL is the Canadian operating arm of Austin Powder Company, a private American owned company since 1833 with its head office located in Cleveland, Ohio.  Austin Powder is a world leader in providing high quality explosives and is a full service drill and shoot provider.

Austin Powder manufactures and self-supplies all components and materials needed to provide high quality blasting services.  In 2011, Austin Powder Limited expanded its corporate partnering model to include seeking First Nation partners in key locales in Canada.  We are actively preparing to move ahead with plans that will establish business relationships that see First Nations as majority owners and operators as APL transfers knowledge and training across Canada.  The anticipated outcome over time will be a highly skilled work force that is price competitive to meet the expanding explosives supply, drill and blast demands in a timely and safe manner. APL currently operates in BC, AB, SK, MB, and ON and growing.  Explosives are utilized in a range of infrastructure, commercial development and resource development sectors for construction purposes.  Increasingly, proponents/developers are looking for full service assurance in the supply and use of explosives which translates to increase employment opportunities for emerging partnerships in the areas of administration, sales, labor, drill operators, bulk truck operators and blasters.

We look forward to working with you to capture your business development opportunities in the explosives supply and services field.
