FIELD TRIP FULL – ANY FURTHER BOOKINGS WILL BE FOR RESERVE LIST IN CASE OF CANCELLATIONS

IMFORMED is delighted to announce that the MagForum 2017 Field Trip will be hosted by Zakłady Magnezytowe Ropczyce SA (ZMR).

ZMR’s plant at Ropczyce, about 140km east of Kraków, was constructed in 1971 with its first furnace on stream in 1975. The company is now recognised as one of the most advanced refractory manufacturers in the world with approximately 250 customers in over 40 countries.

Consuming some 500 grades of different refractory raw materials, including dead burned and fused magnesia grades, ZMR produces 100,000 tpa of four main refractory product groups: unshaped, shaped unburned, shaped burned, and composites; around 50% of output is exported.

A total storage area of 7,800 sq metres permits storage for about 300 raw material products including about 40 strategic raw materials, most in customs-consignment warehouses.

Two years ago ZMR brought on stream a 6,500 tpa 2,000 kVA fusion furnace to manufacture magnesia, magnesia-alumina spinel, and magnesia-chrome grades for in-house consumption.
