Vesuvius ups investments in manufacturing, innovation, and sustainability
Through its Foseco brand, Vesuvius is investing in manufacturing and engineering initiatives throughout North America that: reduce customer lead time, deliver continued product innovation, and offer sustainable consumables and solutions for customers to reduce their environmental footprint.
Construction has begun on a new state-of-the-art manufacturing facility, where 75% of customer demand in North America will be fulfilled beginning in 2023. The new location and existing facilities are being outfitted with updated technology and sustainable initiatives that reduce carbon emissions and improve overall speed and delivery of production processes. The company acquired Universal Refractories Inc., which significantly expands its North American presence among electric-arc furnace (EAF) steel producers, while further strengthening its commitment to foundry customers in the region.
