I am extremely pleased with the service I have received from Independent Explosives. Ed Wean Drilling and Blasting was very busy in recent months and appreciates the prompt and courteous service from Ed and the driver. The driver was always on time for our 5:00a.m. deliveries we required two or three times per week, which ensured my crew made it to our job sites on time. John's paperwork was always accurate, his appearance and that of his vehicle were always exemplary. Communication and availability of products have also been exceptional. Ed Wean Drilling and Blasting will continue to be a long-lasting, loyal customer due to the good impression made by these employees.

Once again, the entire IEX / Dyno Team worked "Spot On" with our efforts and the Contractor, OSC, to achieve a safe, on-time and productive felling event. Your whole crew ALL pulled together. We needed your services and you all stepped up. This event was drawn out, extended and a delayed process due to circumstances beyond any of our control. Typical on these type jobs. ALL SAFE- We managed to pull it off together. The main reason we choose to use IEX is you are all well grounded in field-mature technical knowledge and maintain sold SERVICE ethics few possess in these times.

The Low Level Outlet project is part of a larger program for NYC DEP. Part of the project includes excavating strong and abrasive sandstone with unconfined compressive strength varying from 17,870 psi to 28,990 psi, with average strength of 23,600 psi. This would not be possible without the use of explosives and the great service provided by Independent Explosives and their personnel. The expertise of John M. and Dave W. in planning the project and onsite training in the earlier stages was critical to the success of this portion of the project. Working with Willie B. in securing the necessary inventory and coordinating deliveries has been a pleasure, and the guys delivering to the site have been timely and professional. Steve S. has been our main driver and has been great, but all the guys have been stellar. Willie has even made deliveries to the site to accommodate our schedule. I wish all my suppliers were so easy to deal with and as professional as the team from Independent Explosives and Dyno Nobel!
