Polysius further strengthens their sinter and lime kiln business

Polysius AG in Beckum, Germany, entered into the field of high temperature kilns for producing sintered magnesia, dolomite and alumina, as well as multiple hearth furnaces for calcining fine-grained raw materials and slurries by the acquisition of Maerz Ofenbau AG, Zurich, Switzerland and RCE Industrieofenbau Engineering GmbH, Radenthein, Austria, at the beginning of 2006.

Over the years RCE has achieved an excellent reputation in the sinter industry and is today the clear technology and market leader in this sector, according to the company. In order to further strengthen this field of business and to focus on the technical development as well as expanding the use of these kiln types into various other applications in the minerals industry, this business unit will be concentrated at Polysius’ headquarters in Beckum, as from May 1, 2009.

Polysius’ designation of Maerz Ofenbau AG as the group’s center for all lime activities is rounded off by the concentration of RCE’s lime kiln range at Maerz’ headquarters in Zurich.
