Growth of deliveries of refractories to the Russian market by 7 times in 2 years.
RHI Magensita manufactures more than 2.9 million tons of refractory products per year at 35 production sites for more than 10,000 customers in the metallurgy, energy, cement, glass and chemical industries.
RHI GLAS is a division specializing in the production of refractory products for glass furnaces.
At the end of 2014, RHI GLAS deliveries to Russia amounted to $0.36 million. At the request of RHI GLAS, the Industrial Information Agency identified plans for reconstruction and development of potential customers in the same year. Having received the collected information and held targeted negotiations, RHI GLAS has signed significant contracts with Russian consumers despite the devaluation of the ruble.
As a result, according to the results of 2016, the volume of deliveries of RHI GLAS from European plants to Russia amounted to 2.6 million dollars, having increased by 7 times over 2 years.
