Assertion through the quality of production and services
The daughter company Refrako continues filling orders for its Ukrainian customer - the firm SEV GOK in Krivy Rog. The contract for the delivery of two thousand tons
of high aluminium refractory materials ALKO 60A, 72M, 85 C, light-weight insulation material of the Kolas type and material of refractory cement lines Kotmel, Komal and Kotor TO7A1 was awarded to

which began this year in April and should be until October," affirmed the Fireclay Plant director Dusan Furcak, "so far one hundred trucks have passed through our gates with refractory material
of special shapes, used by our partner to line furnaces for the production of iron pellets for metallurgy as part of the general repair."
