Our obsession with vibration started back in 1988 under the name of Blastronics.
Our company founder, Bruce McKenzie, created the first diagnostic blast monitor of its kind worldwide utilizing some concepts developed by the University of Queensland.
At the time, Bruce was working for Dowell Schlumberger when the opportunity came to create a development team in Brisbane. It was here Bruce and the team commenced commercialising the BMX prototype, which would offer mining and quarrying companies the ability to measure and optimise blasting activities. This gave companies the opportunity to improve the entire operation for the first time with the use of accurate datasets.
Quickly realising this technology could offer benefits to other industries, Bruce changed the name of the company to Texcel, and grew the product and service offering to also encompass the construction industry. Delivery of the products and services through a consultative, no-fuss, flexible approach, became the hallmark of every encounter with the company.
To this day, Bruce continues on this life-long pursuit of vibration monitoring excellence.
