Professional experience and expertise are required to control an industrial production of explosives. Over the years many employees and internal experts have contributed to this expertise and both have ultimately shaped the world-wide reputation of Société Suisse des Explosifs (SSE). As a matter of fact SSE was selected by the French space agency CNES as a supplier to the European rocket programme ARIANE 4 and ARIANE 5. The detonating cord necessary to open the rocket head is manufactured on our site.
SSE is one of the world leaders in the production of pentaerythritol tetranitrate and of detonating cords. Both products are sold in more than forty countries.
SSE offers in its home market Switzerland a whole range of explosives and their related accessories and equipment.
