Six years after the foundation of Seven Refractories, the company is celebrating an expansion of its main plant in Divača, Slovenia. With an additional capacity of 9,000 tons of refractory materials per year, the plant is now more responsive when it comes to short-term orders. Zdravko Počivalšek, minister of Economic Development and Technology, performed the grand opening ceremony with Erik Zobec, CEO. Divača’s major, Alenka Štrucl Dovgan, was also in attendance. The festivities were attended by high-ranking officials from the Embassies to Slovenia, numerous clients and business partners, as well as international Seven representatives. In total, the Slovenian company welcomed guests from almost 20 countries and three continents.
“The market situation is difficult, but we are nonetheless still growing,” said Zobec. “Therefore, we have decided to significantly expand our capacity in Divača. Aside from a vastly expanded in-house laboratory, we have added a new line and effectively doubled the actual capacity of the popular Seven TAP product. This significant investment made us now more flexible in reacting to customer demand.”
The expanded plant will also continue to benefit from Seven Refractories’ strong commitment to environmentally friendly products and production. The solar-powered roof contributes to providing clean energy to the plant. Seven Refractories strives to fulfill not only its environmental obligations, but also to provide optimal working conditions for the employees. Together with the opening of the new enlarged production and laboratory, new social facilities were also opened.
