Mr. Kesselheim expressed his pleasure for our visit after leading us to the well-prepared meeting room and gave a general introduction to Bendorf Plant.
With history being tracked back to 1996, Bendorf Plant was taken over by Refratechnik Group in 2001, for the production of unshaped refractory materials, and has been continuously modernized since then. After the new Management and Research & Development building was opened in 2006, Bendorf became the home base for new developments and innovations in the field of unshaped products, and has also become the center for training courses and workshops. With an annual capacity of more than 30,000 tons, the Bendorf Plant chiefly manufactures alumina based unshaped products for industrial applications worldwide.
Afterwards, Mr. Kesselheim guided us to visit the workshops and went to the top of multilayer mixing tower, and then raw materials warehouses, the automatic packaging line, as well as the laboratory.
It can be found almost all the raw materials at warehouses are procured from renowned suppliers worldwide and we are quite impressed by Refratechnik’s automatic packing machine, diversified testing equipments, scrupulous working attitude of production staffs and plentiful experimental samples on shelves.
During the whole communication process, Mr. Kesselheim patiently and professionally answered all questions proposed by us, and the visitation rounded off under friendly and harmonious atmosphere. Every member of the delegation expressed satisfaction and great achievements.
