Our Vision & Values


Orica Corporate Video

At Orica, we’re committed to developing tomorrow’s technologies and solving today’s challenges for our customers.

Orica is the largest provider of commercial explosives and blasting systems to the mining and infrastructure markets, the global leader in the provision of ground support in mining and tunnelling, and the leading supplier of sodium cyanide for gold extraction.

Orica has a strong portfolio of manufacturing and distribution assets strategically located across Australia Pacific, Asia, EMEA, Latin America and North America which enables us to provide valuable supply chain capabilities for our customers. 

Orica’s strategy is to create sustainable shareholder value through customer focused, innovation led and capital efficient supply of differentiated blasting, mining chemicals and ground support services and products.

These are delivered through low-cost manufacturing and third-party sourcing that underpin security of supply. 

Orica delivers value by developing and commercialising differentiated services and products that maximise our customers’ capacity to:

  • 1,500 blast per day on customer sites
  • 4 million tonnes of bulk explosives supplied annually

Global Reach:

An Australian company with a global footprint, Orica has a diverse workforce of over 12,500 people, with operations in more than 50 countries and customers in more than 100.

Orica’s strategic positioning within the mining sector allows us to maintain stability through continued global economic uncertainty. The mining and processing segments of the commodities value chain on which Orica focuses are largely influenced by production volumes that demonstrate low volatility, even during times of economic slow-down.
