Muhl Chamber 9 13MUHLENBERG COUNTY, Ky. (1/8/20) — The Greater Muhlenberg Chamber of Commerce membership meeting is set for noon Thursday at Felix E. Martin Jr. Hall.

Meal sponsors are Dyno Nobel and Ensign-Bickford Aerospace and Defense.

Dyno Nobel, established more than 180 years ago, is a global leader in commercial explosives creating and investing in products and solutions to help their customer remain competitive, the Chamber writes. The Graham facility was established in 1969 as The Ensign Bickford Company and merged with Dyno Nobel in May 2003.

The Graham facility manufactures detonating cord used for the oil and gas fields in North America, mining operations and military forces abroad. Employing more than 80 people, the Graham site is the only manufacturer of refined PETN in North America and is home to the Peace Team, which is a community outreach program funded by the employees to  help the community.

Ensign Bickford Aerospace and Defense Company is one of Muhlenberg County's best kept secrets, the Chamber writes. Headquartered in Simsbury, Connecticut, local operations have been in Graham since 1969. With nearly 100 employees, they have worked diligently in a "behind the scenes" manner to supply military forces with the right tools for each mission.
