EKW Company Founding in Mexico

This company is fully owned by EKW Group in Germany. EKW REFRACTARIOS DE MEXICO SA DE CV has been fully operational since September 2012. Based in Monterrey, Nuevo Leon State, a steadily growing industrial area, this new operation is dedicated to the manufacture and supply of a wide range of monolithic refractories for the Mexican market: conventional, low and ultralow castables, insulating castables, gunning materials, mortars, etc. At this initial stage, EKW’s corporate R&D is strongly supporting the new entity, transferring technology, to assure a high level of quality and perfect matching of EKW’s know-how by adapting its formulations to use mainly locally sourced raw materials. This will allow a faster response time. The initial production capacity will reach 4000 t/a. The main markets are ferrous foundries and the aluminium industry, where EKW has strong worldwide experience. Also, for the steel and the cement industry, several speciality products will be available starting 2013. (11/2012)
