Main Factory in Divača/Slovenia Expanded with a 4th Line

At the end of a very successful year of 2017, the main factory of Seven Refractories in Divača/Slovenia was expanded with a 4th line.

“The sizable expansion reflects how much the demand for Seven Refractories has been speeding up”, comments Renzo Iuretigh, COO of Seven Refractories. “At a very early stage, we identified the additional growth and decided to permanently add further capacity. We are pleased to say that the enlargement has gone very well. The new production line was taken into operation and immediatly was run on two shifts due to extremely high work load of the whole factory«.

The technology is based on the very successful and well tested setup of line 1, adding a lot of details and solutions developed to optimize the production of the most modern, recently developed and demanding light weight castables.

This extension comes only 18 months after the most substantial addition that factory has undergone to date. In June 2016, Divaca was inaugurated in its enlarged size with an official ceremony. The project was carried through according to plan, and we are very pleased with the quality of the first products, adding an additional yearly capacity of 35.000 tons.
