Company Strategy

11.10.2013

As an industrial chemicals company, we leverage the short and long-term dynamics in the world’s two largest economies.

As an industrial chemicals company, we leverage the short and long-term dynamics in the world’s two largest economies:

  • Growth in demand for hard and soft commodities – driven by the industrialisation and urbanisation of China
  • Global energy disconnect – driven by the shale gas revolution in the US

 

We execute our strategy by positioning ourselves on the input side of the value chain, leveraging core nitrogen and high explosives chemicals manufacturing expertise, and by servicing customers through our aligned downstream businesses.

We are positioned to capture value upstream through low cost, vertically integrated nitrogen based chemical manufacturing. Synergy is created through our common:

 

  • Nitrogen manufacturing core
  • Global supply chain processes
  • Business efficiency program office processes

 

Service to the customer is provided via focused downstream businesses:

 

  • Incitec Pivot Fertilisers
  • Dyno Nobel North America
  • Dyno Nobel Asia Pacific

Our business strategies:

Dyno Nobel North America

  • Largest explosives market in the world
  • Industry size builds scale and expertise, which can be leveraged in other markets
  • Provides base scale across the broader business (e.g. Initiating Systems Manufacturing)

    Dyno Nobel Asia Pacific

    • Growth engine of the IPL Group
    • Moranbah underpins and grows the Asia Pacific explosives business
    • Servicing customers with a direct link to the Asian growth thematic

      Incitec Pivot Fertilisers

      • Geographical positions leveraged to the global fertiliser market 
      • Manufacturing assets and distribution position are directly linked to global fertiliser pricing - driven by demand for soft commodities
