ISEE moved to a new home office Monday, May 7. Although our phone number remains the same, please be sure to update our address to:

International Society of Explosives Engineers
26500 Renaissance Parkway
Cleveland, Ohio 44128

The move comes after our neighbors Nestle purchased a cluster of buildings and land last year where our offices were located. Our new headquarters features a prominent display of historical memorabilia from the mining and explosives industries; a large staging area for conference preparation and packing; and updated infrastructure including internet access, phone lines and IT systems.

Follow us on Facebook to see the pictures once we're all settled in.
