Chemicals and Explosives

“In The Middle Of Difficulty Lies Opportunity.”

Albert Einstein

Chemicals and explosives account for a large percentage of both consumer and industrial products. Demand in the industry is often directly linked to the overall health of local and or global economies. Chemical and explosive companies are also often affected by economies of scale, so profitability is generallly tied to how efficiently day to day operations are run.

Typically, industry standard is to hire large numbers of engineers to manage the often highly automated manufacturing process to ensure operations run smoothly. Generally there are two types of products produced by chemical and explosive companies; intermediate or commodity products and specialty products.
