Capital Refractories Sro Czech Republic expansion – Phase two completed

We are pleased to announce that the 2nd phase of Capital Refractories Sro Czech facility expansion is close to completion.

The "breaking of ground" commenced on 20th May 2014 with the excavation and removal of approx. 4000m3 of aggregate and soil for the foundations for the new production space.

The new bay will provide an additional 500 m2 for manufacturing and free up space for current products and product development.

Phase two has a new kiln and dryer for precast/pressed ceramic shapes providing an additional firing capacity of approx. 40% to the current capacity.

It is anticipated that the second phase of expansion will be completed at the end of October 2014.
