Ulf Frohneberg Appointed to STEULER-KCH Materials Management Team

Thursday, August 22, 2019

With effect from 1 July 2019, Ulf Frohneberg has been appointed to the management team of STEULER-KCH Materials GmbH.

In this role, Ulf Frohneberg, who has already held overall responsibility for the Refractory Linings business unit within the STEULER Group since 2015, will also push forward with the STEULER Group’s refractories activities.
STEULER sees its refractories business as a growth factor for the future. “We want to systematically pursue the course of growth of the entire STEULER Group in the Refractory Linings business unit, too“ says Ulf Frohneberg. “Currently, we are investing in a new tunnel kiln at our Höhr-Grenzhausen site, which will bring with it a considerable increase in capacity from the first quarter of 2020.“
Also appointed to the management team was Christian Dutschke, who has long been responsible for production and development in the Surface Protection Linings business unit, which is also regarded as a driver of future growth for the company.
