HOUSTON, Aug. 14, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DynaEnergetics, a business of DMC Global Inc. (Nasdaq:BOOM), today announced plans to triple the quarterly production of its factory-assembled, performance-assured DynaStage perforating systems by this year’s fourth quarter versus the volume produced in this year’s second quarter. DynaEnergetics recently reported that DynaStage unit sales during the second quarter were up eight-fold versus the first quarter. 

DynaEnergetics management said it also plans to open a 40,000-square-foot manufacturing and assembly center in next year’s second quarter.  The facility, which will be part of DynaEnergetics’ manufacturing campus in Blum, Texas, will enable further expansion of DynaStage assembly operations.  During the second half of 2018, the business also plans to add a second automated U.S. shaped-charge manufacturing line at the Blum facility and a second automated DynaSelect detonator line at its manufacturing plant in Troisdorf, Germany.

A second phase of the Blum expansion is scheduled for 2019-2020, and will include a 30,000-square-foot hardware manufacturing facility. Total investment in the expansion is expected to be $18 million to $20 million and will be funded from DynaEnergetics’ operating cash flow over a three-year period beginning in 2018.

“Our customers are reporting DynaStage has significantly improved the efficiency of their perforating operations, and is delivering measureable cost and performance benefits,” said Ian Grieves, president of DynaEnergetics. “These benefits have been especially important given the recent volatility in oil prices, as the factory-assembled system is reducing our customers’ need for capital investments in costly assembly and storage infrastructure, licenses and personnel.”

Grieves added, “Well-completion activity in North America continues to accelerate, and we are confident this will lead to increased interest in the DynaStage system.  We are committed to meeting the demand.”
