Nordex Explosives Ltd. Announces the Opening of a New Sales Office

08:52 EDT Tuesday, October 29, 2013

KIRKLAND LAKE, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Oct. 29, 2013) -


NORDEX EXPLOSIVES LTD. ("Nordex" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:NXX) is pleased to announce the opening of a new sales office at a strategic location in Sudbury, Ontario. The office is located to provide service to the operating mines in Sudbury as well as several large construction and quarry operations. This facility is another step in the ongoing expansion of Nordex and will further increase exposure to the Company and our proprietary products.

The growth strategy for Nordex Explosives Ltd. identified the need for additional sales staff and an increased presence in Sudbury to solicit new clients and better service existing clients. This site was chosen specifically because of the potential for new business opportunities and in particular for the "Buttbuster" (Johnex) line of perimeter control products for which Nordex has the exclusive manufacturing and distribution rights in Canada.

Nordex is pleased to announce the "Buttbuster" perimeter control products are now available for sale. Nordex is actively starting an aggressive marketing campaign to inform the explosive industry in the use and benefits of this proprietary product line. The new Sudbury office is required to support the introduction of these products.

The location is also suited to provide additional technical and training services for all Nordex products.

Jim Taylor, President, CEO stated; "We have been working on this type of initiative for many months as we continue to execute our expansion plans to drive profitable revenue growth in 2014. We have expended considerable time and resources in 2013 in order to be in a position to manufacture and introduce new product lines and new specialized loading equipment. Nordex will continue to follow a growth strategy to continue to increase market share and gain cost advantages through economies of scale in addition to sourcing less expensive raw materials in order to achieve an increase in operating profits."

Nordex is recognized as an innovator and leader in the field of bulk and packaged emulsion products. This includes the development of unique bulk emulsion delivery systems for both surface and underground applications.
