RHI Magnesita’s Stefan Borgas is the New President of the World Refractories Association (WRA)
He will assume the presidency previously occupied by François Wanecq, former CEO of Vesuvius plc, for two years. St. Borgas and the RHI Magnesita delegation directed their gratitude to F. Wanecq for his work and dedication as inaugural President of the WRA and thanked the whole Vesuvius team for the seamless handover they facilitated together with the WRA Secretariat. “It is a great honour and pleasure for me to chair our industry’s global association. I will continue with my team to work hard to further promote the interests of the refractory industry worldwide and expand its global network”, said Stefan Borgas. The WRA is composed of continental associations including Europe (PRE), Latin America (ALAFAR) and North America (TRI) as well as national associations from China (ACRI), India (IRMA) and Japan (JRA). Multinational companies are also direct members.
