P-D Refractories has inaugurated a tunnel furnace at its Bochum, Germany site.
It is a continuous high-furnace which is automatically fed with fire-proof moulded products.
P-D refractories Associate Mr Jurgen Preiss-Daimler said the new investment would lead to a bright future for the Bochum plant.
At a ceremony where Mr Preiss-Daimler was accompanied by the Mayor of Bochum, the furnace was named Beatrix II by Mr Preiss-Daimler’s wife, Mrs Beatrix Preiss-Daimler.
