Nordex adds a new facility on Manitoulin Island
Will supply explosives to nearby quarry operations and expand its market area.
KIRKLAND LAKE, ONT. — Nordex Explosives Ltd. is opening a second facility close to established large quarry operations on Manitoulin Island, in Lake Huron and geographically part of Southern Ontario.
The Kirkland Lake, Ont. manufacturer of explosives for the mining, quarry and road construction industries said the site will allow the company to diversify and grow revenues in non-mining sectors.
Licensed as a factory site, the new facility permits both the storage and distribution of explosives and also allows for permitted blending, mixing and processing of explosives on site.
The site was chosen specifically to supply explosives to large quarry operations nearby, and to service clients within a new geographic market area.
