AIST reported that Pittsburgh based US refractories manufacturer HarbisonWalker International is boosting production capacity by 25% at its key steel refractories plants as it looks to keep pace with demand from steel mills. It said “Much of the investments will focus on its White Cloud Mich plant, which will receive new warehouse and shipping space. The expansion also includes a new brick press and packaging line, as well as manufacturing technologies that will improve production efficiency and worker safety.”

HarbisonWalker CEO Ms Carol Jackson said “The improvements will further optimize production, product quality, and delivery efficiencies for our steel customers. The new press and warehouse increase our capacity to supply our industry-leading products, including mag carbon brick for steel ladles, electric arc furnaces and basic oxygen furnaces. The new packaging line allows for increased handling safety and provides quality control benefits associated with our product.”
