ABOUT INDEPENDENT EXPLOSIVES, INC.

Past & Present
Independent Explosives, Inc. (IEX) is an independent retail distributor of commercial explosives to the mining, seismic exploration, quarry, pipeline and construction industries. From strategic locations throughout the Northeast, we supply the New England, New York, and Pennsylvania markets, offering quality Dyno Nobel products and services. In fact, IEX is the only authorized Dyno Nobel distributor in the Northeast. The name Independent Explosives, in the explosives industry, conjures up a long and prestigious history of formulating, making and selling all kinds of explosives. From its beginning in 1936, and through the four “brother-sister” companies which formed up through the mid 50’s (Independent Explosives Company, Chemex Supply Corporation, Independent Explosives Co. of Pennsylvania, and Independent Explosives Co. of West Virginia), Independent Explosives progressed from processing various types of nitroglycerin-based explosives, including permissible dynamites, to the manufacture of ammonium nitrate blasting agents, and finally, in the mid 80s, to the manufacture of bulk emulsion explosives.
