Traditionally modern.

    Innovative refractory products and systems for the ceramics and brickmaking industry have been produced in Melle for more than 125 years. During the past years, and based on this knowhow, we have become a modern company that has advanced to a world leader for refractory installations for kilns in these industries – also thanks to a global supply network and utmost flexibility.

    The traditional previous Burton GmbH & Co. KG site stands for high-quality products for the world’s heavy clay industry. Moreover, products for other industrial sectors – e.g. for the aluminium industry – are also produced here.

    The total annual capacity amounts to 75.000 tons of fired products. The Melle site is equipped with 14 hydraulic presses, including 4 automatic lines with lining robots, two tunnel kilns and two car bottom kilns.
