Magnesita Refratários S.A has announced an agreement with ACIS, a cement maintenance and operations service company based in China and Saudi Arabia.

Under the agreement ACIS will expand its service offering with Magnesita’s refractory products in support of global cement greenfield projects. ACIS and Magnesita will target Chinese cement Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) who are building projects in countries primarily outside of China. The cooperation starts on 1 July and will continue for three years, with a possible extension.

According to Magnesita CEO, Octavio Lopes, “Partnering with ACIS who is recognised within the cement industry for its technical and service capability, is an important step for Magnesita’s continued growth within the industrial market. This alliance with ACIS will help clients control costs utilising Magnesita’s high quality refractory products as new cement plants are commissioned.”
