Magnesita Receives ThyssenKrupp Contracts

Magnesita Refratários S.A. recently announced that ThyssenKrupp, an integrated materials and technology group and reportedly the largest stainless steel producer in Europe, has awarded Magnesita four contracts to provide refractory solutions at its Beeckerwerth, Bruckhausen, and HKM integrated facilities in Germany, as well as its CSA facility in Brazil.

Together, the contracts position Magnesita as the largest global supplier of refractory solutions for ThyssenKrupp. Magnesita will provide mag-carbon, high-alumina, burnt and tempered dolomite, and monolithics, among other materials, for the refractory needs for the steel ladles, converters, torpedo cars, at four ThyssenKrupp facilities. Contract lengths vary with duration up to year-end 2012.

“We are honored that ThyssenKrupp has expressed their confidence in Magnesita by entering into these new and expanded contracts,” said Ronaldo Iabrudi, CEO. “Over the past few years, Magnesita has been extending its global footprint as we increasingly meet the refractory needs of customers worldwide with our high-grade products and solutions. This contract represents our continued growth in the German and European markets as a global producer of refractory materials serving major international players. We look forward to our continued relationship with ThyssenKrupp in both Germany and worldwide.”
