Stability. Continuity. Family. Future.

Nelson Brothers has been family-owned and operated since 1956. While some come-and-go in the commercial explosives industry, our customers know our people are here for them over the long run. Our executive leadership reflects both the steadfast nature our brand is known for and a concerted effort to ensure these qualities carry over to the benefit of our extended family – including our team members and customers – long into the future.
