South America

AEL South America, headquartered in Santiago, Chile, was established in early 2010 as a channel business centre to distribute AEL’s range of explosives, initiating systems and services.

Staffed by nine locally recruited employees and headed up by an AEL professional from South Africa, AEL South America was established with several goals in mind. One of these is to effectively address the growing business requirements of loyal users of AEL products and services in the region.

Products and Services

AEL intends on using our channel partners to provide the latest in explosives technology and services to the smaller explosives companies, providing them with a wealth of Research and Development infrastructure and technical capability.

The regional office is currently furthering its aims in this endeavour with the establishment of a shock tube assembly plant, which is currently being built in Calama and will assist the office and its channel partners in delivering on the group’s modus operandi, which is to provide quality product, on time and in full.

Playing host to one of the largest copper reserves on earth, the South American mining industry is dominated by open cast and underground mines, all of whom now have access to AEL’s broad and innovative product
