Managers and specialists of the Magnezit Group take part in the international conference of refractory manufacturers and metallurgists, which is being held with the support of the Group at the National Research Technological University «MISIS» in Moscow on May 23-24.

At the opening ceremony of the conference, Dmitry Borzov, Development Director of Magnezit Group, made a report on activities of the Association of manufacturers and consumers of refractories and further development of cooperation with industry associations and major consumers from the metallurgical, cement and glass industries. He also emphasized the need for continued support of import substitution programmes both on the supply side of refractory materials to Russian customers and in terms of the development of heavy-machinery production for the needs of the industry. This approach is aimed to increase the sustainability and economic security of the entire national industry.

Magnezit workers will take part in the forum and visit an exhibition of instruments, equipment, technological developments and thematic literature, which will be organized as part of the conference.

For more than 20 years, this conference has served as a multinational platform for discussion and resolution of current issues by representatives of the metallurgical, refractory and their partner industries of Russia, the CIS countries, Europe and China. The Magnezit Group is its initiator and traditionally acts as a co-organizer, the Group’s leaders serving as members of the organizing committee.
