Company History: The Apache Powder Co. was incorporated on June 11, 1920, by a conglomerate of mining companies in the Southwest as a means of decreasing the excessive market price of explosives. The company became the largest single plant for the manufacture of dynamite in the United States. Located near St. David, the company was heavily involved in supplying explosives to the mining industry.

The extensive operation grew to 140 buildings on more than 700 acres, employing several hundred people and making it one of the largest employers in Southern Arizona. Hilly terrain allowed for a natural separation of operations in explosives manufacture. The dry climate also aided in the production of high-grade powder.

The company was renamed Apache Nitrogen Products Inc. in 1990, reflecting its emphasis on the nation’s mining and agricultural needs.

Brief History: The U.S. is a country of 50 states covering a vast swath of North America, with Alaska in the northwest and Hawaii extending the nation’s presence into the Pacific Ocean. Major Atlantic Coast cities are New York, a global finance and culture center, and capital Washington, DC. Midwestern metropolis Chicago is known for influential architecture and on the west coast, Los Angeles' Hollywood is famed for filmmaking.
