Innovation in Commercial Explosives & Mining Services

Innovation has been at the core of Nelson Brothers’ values dating back to the earliest days of the company when brothers Dugan and Olen were at the forefront of bagging pre-mixed ANFO to bring a more consistent and easier to load product to boreholes in Alabama’s coal country. Over the next sixty years, we were able to grow our business by listening to our customers’ needs, observing challenges faced in the field, and innovating to improve upon our ability to help our customers succeed.

Today, Nelson Brothers’ dedicated Innovative Solutions Group carries on our legacy of innovation with a mandate to bring the future into today. Our Field Technical Services address the expressed and observed needs of our customers and field teams by leveraging the latest technologies. Additionally, our specialty chemicals R&D personnel work tirelessly to develop cutting-edge emulsifiers and emulsions formulations that give Nelson Brothers’ products a sustained advantage in the field.
