“We are thrilled to partner with Rath to further expand our offerings in industrial heating technology enabling societies and industries to make the green shift. In this era of electrification, this partnership will provide our customers with a broader range of innovative solutions that will enable them to optimise their operations and achieve their sustainability goals,” stated Robert Stål, president of Kanthal. “Together, we can leverage our collective expertise to deliver greater value to our customers and help them thrive in a rapidly evolving market.”

“For quite some time, we have been focusing on sustainability in all our activities – be it when it comes to developing energy-saving refractory products or, more specifically, refractory materials that can be used to line electrically heated furnaces. With the latter, we will – together with our strategic partner Kanthal – enable customers’ shift towards fossil-fuel free production,” added Andreas Pfneiszl, CFO/CSO of Rath.
