Since its foundation
in 1949 Burwitz has worked successfully to become
one of the leading refractory engineering companies
in Germany. The recent past of the company is,
as well, a reflection of its success. For the
last few years the company has been working in
over 25 countries around the world and has worked
with more than 300 bricklayers and 45 engineers.
Furthermore, the company has doubled the refractory
production and prefabricated parts, has achieved
several maintenance contracts with a five years
period of validity and developed blast furnace
linings in shotcast procedure.
The main activity of Burtwiz involves refractory
production, maintenance, shotcast lining and own
furnace construction (special furnaces and test
Another important aspect to outline about Burwitz
is the establishment of the Burtherm Company in
Eisenhüttenstadt, Germany, that it is in charge
of Burwitz’s production line for premanufactured
parts and refractory materials and concretes which
can be used in nearly all industrial fields.
At the Eisenhüttenstadt plant all conventional
refractory concretes are produced on A2O3 basis.
Burwitz’s latest product is a lightweight castable.
Among the recent projects developed by the company
is the control of furnaces by thermal imaging
cameras and video endoscopy.
To make all these achievements possible the workforce
has been an important factor. Burwitz is formed
by highly qualified professionals, bricklayers,
foremen and engineers who receive quarterly training
and management seminars.
