Résumé glasstec 2018
Otto's descendants visit the location Dr. C. Otto of P-D Refractories
"Preserving tradition - shaping the future" is clearly visible here in Bochum-Dahlhausen.
Dr. Carlos Otto is honoured in Höhr-Grenzhausen
After the completion of the new building, installations were set up as part of “Kunst am Bau” (‘art-in-architecture’) in the building that was officially inaugurated on 19 April 2013, dedicated to special personalities. These personalities earned their acclaim as “pioneers” either in ceramic research or the ceramic industry or in refractory research or the refractory industry. Three criteria applied to the selection of the personalities in the “People” installation, which Dr. Carlos Otto fulfilled with his pioneering work in the refractory field.
P-D Refractories congratulates P-D Valmiera Glass USA Corp. for the successful inauguration of the fiberglass bath
Under the direction of Valmiera Glas AG, a new fiberglass plant was built up in Dublin/Georgia USA within two years, from the planning to the opening on April 11, 2018.
On January 30, 2018, the first fiberglass was produced. A great performance that is unique in the world. Valmiera Glas AG as the main shareholder and the P-D Group have a long-term cooperation on the US market. For the Valmiera Glas stock company and its shareholders it is a further step forwards.
P-D Refractories makes future-oriented investments at the Wetro site
With this investment, P-D Refractories, Europe's largest producer of tin bath bottom and tank blocks, is responding to the increased demand of the container and float glass industry. Furthermore, the steadily increasing quality requirements of machined shaped bricks, which are part of the core business of the Wetro site, are taken into account.
