RHI Completes Takeover of Stopinc

RHI AG recently announced it has taken over 100% of Stopinc AG, a producer and supplier of refractory special products for use in the iron and steel industry. RHI previously held a 50% stake in the Swiss company.

The takeover reportedly strengthens RHI’s Flow Control segment, which covers the regulated flow of liquid steel and nonferrous metals in the production process. With its Interstop brand, Stopinc is a market leader in this segment. RHI will keep the brand and will continue to expand its activities, especially in Asia, and to invest in research.

Stopinc, based in Hünenberg, Switzerland, will be maintained as an independent company with production sites and sales offices in the U.S. and China, as well as service offices in Brazil, India, and Russia.
