International Cooperation of Refratechnik Ceramics and Trend

As part of a market development programme, Trend/CN has recently been cooperating with Refratechnik Ceramics, the Germany-based company that was founded in 2013 with the takeover by Refratechnik Holding of the renowned refractory manufacturer BURTON GmbH & Co. KG/DE.

After a number of discussions to explore possibilities for a joint approach, a team from Trend visited Refratechnik plants for the first in a planned series of mutual exchanges between the two companies. In Melle/DE, the visit was workshop based, and the Refratechnik personnel informed about ordering, quality, technical and sales procedures as well as controls. The Trend team was kindly hosted by the highly experienced Sales Director, Jörn Böke, over a period of three days.
The future plan is for Trend to organise reciprocal training in Tianjin/CN – perhaps in January 2020 – with the goal of assisting both companies to develop their respective technologies and markets, and to further understand how Trend and Refratechnik products can work together for the ultimate benefit of the heavy clay ceramics manufacturing sector.
The Melle site in Germany has been oper­ational for more than 125 years, important refractory product technology has been central to the efforts at this facility since around 1955. The BURTON brand name is well established all around the world, with these refractory products predominantly being used by manufacturers of roofing tiles, clinker and backing bricks, as well as blocks.
