After an intensive training session at the United Refractories plant and training center in Brookville, Indiana USA, we are proud to announce the latest group of refractories manufacturing graduates: Yi-Ruei Ju, Syuan-Jhih Lyu and Chi-Hsiang Liang. Over the past 12 weeks, these graduates have been trained in everything from manufacturing and quality control to environmental and safety considerations. They will use the skills learned to further develop the local manufacturing plants of our URC’s partner, Presico, in Taiwan and China. URC would like to thank its partner Presico for its commitment to expanding the URC’s products throughout Asia!
