At MAXAM, we began our activity operating in underground mines more than 145 years ago. Since then, we have continued to develop solutions adapted to our customers, overcoming every challenge.

Through our customised loading and explosive systems, such as ascending bores (up-holes) or complete 360º ring charges, we can design more efficient blasting that enables an optimal distribution of energy, with homogenised fragmentation curves.
