M-Group integrates RefraSolid

On 01.11.2018, the M-Group integrated RefraSolid, a company specialized in safety technology.

The M-Group is a worldwide organised group of companies that offers a wide range of services for refractories technology, across all industrial sectors, including aluminium and cement. In lime kiln technology the range of performance covers repair, modernization as well as new constructions.

Over the years and with a focus on the cement industry, RefraSolid has shown itself to be a market leader in the sector of overhead protection in roof applications and safety. With its innovative safety systems, this company perfectly complements the M-Group, which is now making this know-how available to other sectors.

With its own company specializing in safety technology, the M-Group is reaffirming its pioneer spirit and visionary leadership. The integrated concept offers all customers a unique spectrum of products and services with a clear focus on safety.

Industrial furnace operators are regularly confronted with the necessary maintenance of their manufacturing and refractory plants, which can be very complicated, involving high risks. Every inspection presents a challenge: i.e. short shutdown times and high-quality and solid repair work with optimum safety – these are the challenges of every project. It is not possible to meet these challenges without professionals. It is logical to entrust these tasks to specialists who can offer all the necessary services from one source.

With the decades of refractory experience of the M-Group and its principles of quality, on-time execution and technical know-how, the customer can feel safe with the M-Group as an ideal partner: short shutdown, highest quality and utmost safety.
