100% owned by SNPE, which itself is a subsidiary of GIAT Industries (mother company of NEXTER), EURENCO is a European company whose industrial plants are located across France – in Sorgues (Vaucluse) and Bergerac (Dordogne) – Belgium and Sweden. EURENCO is a strategic supplier for several countries in the continent – particularly those where it is established, but also Great Britain, Germany, Italy and Switzerland – while also developing its overseas export sales. EURENCO employs over 900 people, with a turnover of about 220 million Euros (2014).

Created in January 2004 from the merger between SNPE Explosives & Propellants, NEXPLO Bofors and NEXPLO Vihtavuori, EURENCO inherited its parents’ centuries of in-depth knowledge of energetic materials. Widely acknowledged for its high level of expertise and know-how in chemical synthesis and transformation of energetic molecules, EURENCO develops, manufactures and provides a largely diversified range of cutting-edge energetic materials for both the defence and the commercial markets.

A leading European company for military explosives, propellants and combustible items, EURENCO also provides explosives for the civil sector (oil & gas perforation, mining), and owns the world’s largest production capacity for 2-EHN (diesel fuel additive). Laboratories, pilot workshops, multi-purpose units and large scale facilities, all contribute to strengthening EURENCO’s R&D and manufacturing capabilities, allowing small scale to mass production.
