The Société Anonyme d’Explosifs et de Produits Chimiques, now EPC Groupe, was founded in 1893.
Building on a hundred years of experience, the EPC Group has developed various innovative processes in the area of creation and use of explosives: dynamite, ammonium nitrate fuel oil (ANFO), water gel explosives, emulsion explosives, etc. As early as the 1950’s, we pride ourselves to have been the first internationally to file a patent on ANFO. EPC Groupe has also been a forerunner in developing and using mobile bulk explosives manufacturing units for underground and tunneling work.
Today, EPC Groupe employs more than 1700 people in around 40 companies working on behalf of mining, quarrying and civil engineering operators in more than 20 countries, mainly in Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
