BME reported that it seeks partnerships, joint ventures and distribution agreements in the U.S. The company has an office in Denver, Colorado, and explosive magazines in Utah, and is primed to service and supply miners across the country, the company said.

The supplier can offer a full range of initiation systems for surface and underground applications, BME said.

“In addition to BME’s AXXIS electronic initiation line, our private label arrangement with a major explosive manufacturer gives BME a complete product line in the USA,” Joe Keenan, managing director, BME, said. “We are confident that BME’s world-class, proven technologies will excite the U.S. market, especially those large U.S. drill and blast companies looking for a better deal and specialist service from their explosive supplier.”
