Our distributor network brings the power and reliability of PowerNel™ emulsions to broader use in their customer markets.

Distribution & Logistics 

Since the early 1980, Nelson Brothers has been a leading manufacturer of the highest quality, longest-lasting emulsion explosives. Utilizing the technology of our patented PIBSA-based emulsifiers, produced at our specialty chemicals manufacturing facility in Parrish, AL, PowerNel™ emulsions have a minimum shelf life of one year, making them a preferred bulk and packaged emulsion for distribution.

With two strategically located emulsion manufacturing facilities, Nelson Brothers conveniently serves a distribution network spanning thirty-three Eastern U.S. states. Located in Cordova, Alabama, our Samoset facility is in the Southern U.S. to quickly provide products from Texas to the Carolinas. The central location of our newest state-of-the-art St. Paul facility in Quincy, Kentucky, can expediently serve the Midwest, Appalachia, and Northeast regions.
