About RHI

RHI is a globally operating supplier of high-grade refractory products, systems and services, which are indispensable to industrial high-temperature processes exceeding 1,200 °C. With historic roots and headquarters in Austria, the Group is a world market and technology leader today.

With roughly 7,500 employees, 30 production facilities and more than 70 sales offices, RHI serves more than 10,000 customers in the steel, cement, lime, nonferrous metals, glass, energy, environment and chemical industries. Customized RHI refractory products and system solutions ensure that customer aggregates – such as steel ladles, cement rotary kilns, copper converters or glass tanks – withstand extreme thermal, mechanical and chemical stress in the production process. The production of refractory materials is resource-intensive. The Group covers more than 70 percent of its requirements (magnesite, dolomite) from its own raw material resources in order to remain largely independent of the volatile raw material markets.

The innovative power of our employees and a proactive research strategy have made RHI a global technology leader. RHI generates annual revenues of roughly 1.7 billion euros. The RHI share is listed on the Prime Market of the Vienna Stock Exchange (ATX).
