Company Description
NobelClad is the global leader in explosive clad welding, with over half a century of experience serving the world's energy, industrial and infrastructure markets.


In 2016, NobelClad celebrates 50 years of helping our clients deliver successful industrial infrastructure projects through our expertise and leadership in explosion welding. Our business has come a long way since its 1965 inception as EF Industries, which was a diversified industrial business based outside Boulder, Colorado. Back then, we focused primarily on underwater explosive forming, a process used to shape blank sheets of metal alloys into complex three-dimensional parts for aerospace equipment manufacturers. The late 1960s also was an exciting time for the nascent explosion welding industry, and we were committed to mastering the process and applying it to a range of innovative industrial applications.

In 1976, we changed our name to Explosive Fabricators and became a publicly traded company under the ticker symbol “BOOM.”

In 1994, we became Dynamic Materials Corporation, and two years later, purchased the explosion welding business of another industry pioneer, DuPont. We also assumed the lease on DuPont’s Dunbar Mine, a former limestone mine in southwestern Pennsylvania that was converted into a unique explosion welding shooting facility. The Dunbar transaction represented a major achievement in positioning us for future growth. In addition to providing a controlled environment for detonations, the mine was close to regional metals suppliers and fabricators, and provided improved access to domestic and international shipping ports.

In 2001, we acquired French explosion welding business Nobelclad, and in 2007 purchased Germany-based Dynaplat. These acquisitions enhanced our technical expertise, expanded our production capacity and established our company as the global leader in explosion welding. In 2013, we unified all of our worldwide cladding businesses under the NobelClad brand.

Still headquartered in Boulder, Colorado, we currently operate explosion welding facilities in Germany, France and the US, with worldwide sales and distribution.
