Press room - News - MAXAM reinforces its commitment to the Australian market with the opening of two manufacturing sites

  • Strategically located 120km from Perth, in the McLarty reserve, both facilities were relocated from the former Baldivis reserve and aim to support the mining sector growth.
  • Through these new state-of-the-art sites, MAXAM is the sole blasting solutions provider in the country to manufacture both bulk explosives and non-electric detonators in Western Australia.
MAXAM, a global technology company specializing in the design, development, manufacture and application of energetic materials, reinforces its commitment to the Australian market with the opening of two manufacturing sites at McLarty Reserve. Strategically located 120km south of Perth, both sites have been relocated from the former Baldivis reserve and solidifies MAXAM’s commitment to produce high quality blasting solutions for its key customers across Australia and the South Pacific region.

In these sites, the company manufactures RIOFLEX, its high energy bulk explosive, and RIONEL, non-electronic detonators, being the sole blasting solutions provider in the country to manufacture both products in Western Australia.

MAXAM took the opportunity to transfer both facilities and develop state-of-the-art sites at their new location, with both automatic and manual production lines. In order to support mining sector growth in Australia, MAXAM designed new highly adaptable RIOFLEX and RIONEL plants with inbuilt capabilities to increase volumes by more than three times, reaching its maximum technical capacities.

According to Michael Briggs, MAXAM Australia General Manager, “our best in class products such as RIOFLEX, the most versatile and energetic bulk technology in the market, allow us to provide customized solutions to our customers. In fact, working together with our clients is in our DNA, delivering sustainable value.”

Ramón Paramio, MAXAM Terra Solutions General Manager, added: “we started our internationalization in Australia back in 1987 and since then we have become a truly global player in the blasting solutions industry. We are proud to keep investing in this market, supporting our customers to make their operations more sustainable, productive and efficient.”
