Looks like Hodgdon is divesting itself of GOEX. Shame. :(

That's the only BP I've ever used in my smoke poles.

Saw that but wondering why now they’re getting outta that side of the business? Especially with everything being in short supply.

Had a couple plant explosions in the past - IDK

Despite Hodgdon's efforts, the GOEX facility at Camp Minden has a history of manufacturing incidents stretching back to 1998, including a June 2011 incident where 1,000 lbs. of blackpowder exploded. The latest incident at GOEX occurred on June 18, 2021, when an explosion required the evacuation of 15 employees inside the facility. Nobody was injured, but the plant observed a 24- to 48-hour waiting period to ensure that nothing else at the facility ignited.
