The history of Magnezit Group, which began back in 1901, has unfolded in tandem with the development and adoption of high-temperature technologies. All the basic materials of modern-day civilization — be it metal, glass or cement — are born out of fire. We manufacture refractories for the materials industry to protect machinery from the destructive power of high temperatures. We have achieved a lot over the years, but still believe this is just the beginning, the continual starting-point of a never-ending journey to the most perfect solutions that serve purposes far beyond technical applications. In searching for such solutions, we ultimately aspire to make people’s lives more comfortable, secure and productive.
Since we embarked on our journey, we have launched a major program to invest over 20 billion rubles into building the only Russian plant manufacturing magnesia refractories based on Russian Magnezit premium line products. The new plant will be fully commissioned in 2021 to mark the company’s 120th anniversary.
It is also crucial to be able to see how their achievement impacts the world, society and each person individually. It is not enough just to constantly develop technologies. It is also essential to understand how they influence the future and be aware of one’s own responsibility for it. We anticipate changes in the industry before they begin, and indeed initiate them ourselves. We find and create new potential interdependencies where they did not exist before. We believe it is important for Magnezit Group always to remain at the vanguard of companies that are changing the world for the better. We interact with all areas of human activity, serving common human interests. We are convinced that the best solutions always result from joining efforts and from combining different points of view. We develop for everyone’s sake. Our main resource is the person — and it is infinite.
As we work to improve our production facilities, we keep not only our own interests in mind — we interact with the entire refractory industry and the industries we serve. Magnezit Group is developing an R&D platform for professionals in a wide range of areas from all over the world to help them share their knowledge and experience.
for the future
As we draw nearer to excellence in technologies, we realize that its value slips away if it is not accompanied by reflection on an even deeper — philosophical — level.
One of the key dimensions of this approach is a new perspective on the environmental role of industrial culture. It allows us to see that technology and ecology can complement each other, rather than ruling one another out.
