Orica is one of the top 50 companies listed on the Australian Stock Exchange. We have been in business for over 130 years, growing from a supplier of explosives to the Victorian gold fields in Australia into a multi-billion dollar company that supplies an extensive range of products and value-adding services. Our products, brands and services can be trusted for their reliability, range and quality.
At Orica we have adopted a three-fold approach to the way we do business, focusing on:
Strategy which is about planning for business growth, Efficiency which includes productivity improvements and capital management, and Culture which aligns everyone within the company to common goals, behaviours and ethics, and which empowers and motivates them to achieve long-term, sustainable results.
Orica operates through five business platforms – Mining Services, Incitec Pivot, Chemnet, Chemical Services and Orica Consumer Products. Each is a leader in its chosen market and enjoys a world class reputation.
With a long history of technical excellence and innovative products, we continue to strive for product and process improvements.
