Institute of Makers of Explosives


 “Florida’s Booming Economy”

The Institute of Makers of Explosives mission is to promote the safe and secure manufacture, transport, distribution, and use of commercial explosives. For over 100 years, the Institute has represented U.S. manufacturers of commercial explosives and other companies that distribute commercial explosives or provide related products and services. Each year, an average of three million metric tons of commercial explosives are consumed in the United States and are essential to energy production, communications, technology manufacturing, highway and building construction, the healthcare delivery system, food, and the manufacturing of nearly all metals and mineral products. If you use or consume it, explosives make it possible.
