Less than a year after the publication of Seven’s first brochure for the aluminium industry, satisfied customers in several countries have been won. Deliveries have gone to Germany, Italy, the Slovak Republic, Russia, and Taiwan.
Marco Tonidandel, Business Development Manager at Seven explains: “More customers trust our products as they were convinced by the performance of products and because they appreciate the completeness of our product range, it allows for custom solutions for each type of furnace or process.”
The choice of the optimal refractory solution for these manifold applications is crucial in order to ensure furnace performance and longevity. In recent months, Seven has signed on several customers in Southern, Central, and Eastern Europe as well as Asia.
“Over the last years we have become an important and widely known supplier for the steel and iron industry in Russia”, says Roman Cheglov, Managing Director Seven Russia. “We are therefore proud and happy to expand our activities also to aluminium production. It is typical for the speed of Seven Refractories that the first sales comes before we even had a chance to translate the aluminium brochure into Russian.”
