One of the industries taking advantage of the Company’s expertise is the production of ceramics for the engineering and electronics industry. A number of large kilns operating at temperatures up to 1750°C have been installed throughout the world and the Company is a member of the British Ceramic Plant and Machinery Manufacturers’ Association (BCPMMA).
The Company has worked closely with Rolls Royce Aero Engines and has installed around 50 furnaces.
