Division Plant Metallurgical Furnace Maintenance

The refractory technology division is based on the traditions of the former East Slovakian Steelworks going back to 1965. Since that time these activities have undergone many changes, one of the results being the establishment of the company Reliningserv, s.r.o. in 2002, focusing on repairs of refractory linings. This company was subsequently taken over by VULKMONT, a.s. Košice in 2009, with the aim of consolidating these activities for the steelmaking industry. Today’s RMS, a.s. Košice is a successful provider of repair work for various types of furnaces and hot converters in the metallurgical (including aluminium) industry, power generating, cement-making, chemicals, engineering and wood-processing industries.
