A Czech Republic drill and blast contractor, Explosive Service, was formed in 1990, the year communism collapsed in what was then the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic. The company was quick to adopt the latest equipment and has also benefited from having a very cost effective source for its explosives.

Explosive Service in the Czech Republic is unique; not only does the company offer standard drilling and blasting services, but it also manufactures explosives. The combination of efficient rock drilling techniques using the most modern computerized drill rigs on the market and years of experience of cost-effective blasting has given Explosive Service a vital edge in the quarry and construction business.
