The Company
EXPLOSIVE SPECIALISTS, INC., a drilling and blasting contractor based in Knoxville, Tennessee, provides specialized drilling, blasting, and hydraulic rock breaking. We have been in business since 1987, undergo regular and periodic training, are fully licensed and insured, and have a safety record and reputation for being among the best in the area. We are capable of doing all types and sizes of jobs, from small residential projects to miles of gas lines and large commercial projects. We work throughout East Tennessee and in the surrounding states.



The Equipment and Service
When you encounter rock on a job, we can determine and advise which type and size of equipment will provide the maximum results for you. We have a full range of equipment, from drill rigs to excavators rigged with 1,500 to 5,000 pound hammers. We own our equipment and will transport it to your job site with our Mack tractor and lowboy trailer, so we are not dependent upon the transportation and rental equipment of others. We acquire all blasting permits and arrange for pre-blast surveys and seismic monitoring services, when needed.



We take pride in our work and are committed to safety, dependability, efficiency, and professionalism.
