Since 1970 Halifax based Parkinson-Spencer Refractories Ltd has been the UK licensee of Bucher Emhart Glass for the manufacture of Emhart designed feeder expendable refractories. This licence gave access to the
original Bucher Emhart Glass refractory drawings and manufacturing tolerances and was originally one of 4 world-wide refractory manufacturing licences operated by Bucher Emhart Glass. Following a recent review of their refractory licensee operations Bucher Emhart Glass have decided that such relationships no longer suit the current market situation and with the exception of PSR’s licence all other licensee arrangements have been or will be terminated by the end of 2015.
Comments David Parkinson, Managing Director of PSR, “I am delighted that Bucher Emhart Glass has decided to continue our licensee arrangement. It is a relationship that PSR has enjoyed for the past 45 years and is one that has benefitted both ourselves and the Bucher Emhart Glass refractory manufacturing plant in Owensville Missouri by means of mutual cooperation and exchange of ideas in this specialised area of refractory manufacture.”
Under the new arrangement PSR will have access to all the latest Bucher Emhart designed feeder expendable parts including the type 585 high capacity metering spout refractory parts.
