Texcel specialises in providing managed environmental monitoring services and equipment to the Mining, Quarrying, Construction and Infrastructure sectors to ensure clients meet their compliance and environmental data collection objectives.
We are passionate and are keen to deliver exceptional service with unmatched outcomes while retaining a sense of humour and a zest for life.
Texcel’s expertise in this market has been developed through our 30+ years’ experience in the design and manufacture of vibration monitoring instrumentation.
Texcel was born out of innovation. We started operations in 1988 under the name Blastronics, where we were the first business to commercialise out of the University of Queensland, creating the BMX, the world’s first diagnostic blast monitor.
Technology improvements and industry demand saw the BMX morph into many other monitor types – the QMX born into the quarrying industry, the GPX developed for the energy sector, the µMX, one of the most robust pieces of blast monitoring instrumentation – our sales guru has literally run over it with his truck, without damaging it, on several occasions – the HMX created to monitor dynamic load testing on bridges, the ATM, the CTM and currently the ETM and GTM – systems and software that operate in a wide variety of real-world situations.
Texcel is a distillation of the expertise garnered from its forebears, including Blastronics and Infratech. The innovative “institution” created as a consequence of these businesses has fostered the careers of, and contributed numerous world class experts to, both the mining and infrastructure industries.
While our origins were in the blasting industry, over time Texcel moved into the wider market of vibration monitoring in the mining, quarrying, construction and infrastructure industries. In 2000, we changed our name from Blastronics to Texcel to reflect this evolution.
