    I was wondering if it would be possible
    to get a picture of my truck or trailer used with the banner an crew back in March of 2013 which was in the photo shoot of the
    opening of the DEF site! Myself and one of the crew were up on the catwalk above the trailer when the pics were taken. Would be nice to have a pic! I am with PIlot and am a regular customer I practically live their im their so much lol anyway thought I would ask! Thanks for keeping me busy with the DEF facility convenience Darrell

      Hi Darrell, I’m afraid I’m probably the wrong person to ask – you should try asking the Dyno Nobel guys at the plant – I’m sure they’ll have it.

  2. Kevin D Reese Sr says:

    Is there a contact at the plant I could send a company brochure too? I am interested in trying to get on the plants bid list for plant repairs.

    • Trevor Brown says:

      Hi Kevin,

      I’m the wrong person to ask – you’d need to contact the plant for that. The Dyno Nobel website gives very little guidance for contact details.

      Good luck,
