We have created quite a bit

RATH is an Austrian company with a long tradition. Founded by August Rath, Junior, in 1891, this family business has developed into an international company renowned for refractory technology and heat-resistant materials for more than 130 years.

We are clearly aligned in terms of strategy

We do not do mass production. We produce high quality products for special applications in our own plants. You could say that the RATH Group is a brick manufacturer for the highest requirements. This is what we align ourselves with; this is where we see our potential.
