The “certified shop – safe shopping” seal has been renewed


You get the feeling that our seal shines a little more... At the beginning of September we received the seal and the corresponding certificate for our schuba shop from the Verein sicherer und seriöser Internetshopbetreiber e.V. Once a year, our schuba shop is thoroughly inspected by a neutral law firm, which acts as an inspection body. Over 100 criteria play a role. For example, test orders are placed in order to be able to understand the processes in the shop. In addition, the comparability of the basic prices, the item descriptions, the presentation of the products, all legal details (imprint, general terms and conditions, data protection declaration, ...) and the payment options are carefully checked.

There have also been corrections to be made in accordance with the requirements. For example, we remember that we forgot to enter the basic prices for two new items. Unfortunately, given the large amount of detailed information that has to be stored for each product, this sometimes cannot be avoided.

One more reason to belong to the club so that you can correct mistakes at short notice. This year there were no complaints. With our new schuba shop - which has been operating in this form since February 2022 - we were able to meet the requirements and are pleased about the new certificate. We have been a member since 2008 and can always rely on the expert advice we receive from the association. Thank you very much for this and look forward to continued good cooperation!

Turbinenhaus Naumburg: “My Future” training exchange


On September 12th, 2023 we were represented at the “My Future” training exchange in Naumburg in the Turbinenhaus.

Individual cuts – made-to-measure stone configuration


We are receiving more and more inquiries and orders for stone cuts with special dimensions. Millings, cuts, bores, openings or chamfers: we produce the blanks in the shortest possible time. Today we show a nice example. A circular blank with an opening was made from a fireclay plate Schuba®FFP-A35t, 500x500x35mm, P6-35, fireproof. The cut was specially made for a customer. The configuration was handled using our 3D configurator.

Kulturweberei Finsterwalde – Chimney renovation by our company


In April of this year the time had come and the new town hall - the 'cultural weaving mill' in Finsterwalde was opened. With many events, the new multifunctional hall now attracts thousands of visitors. Concerts, readings, musicals and other events of all kinds are offered.
We are pleased that we were allowed to be part of this project. Our company – Günter Schulz GmbH & Co. KG - was commissioned with the chimney renovation of the old cloth factory.
An extensive repair has now been carried out. The 46 m high masonry chimney was cleaned, damaged clinker bricks replaced and the masonry repointed. In addition, the riser was revised and the old stage at the chimney cap was dismantled.

Customer reviews at ekomi


Customer feedback on work from our stone processing center - received on 07/24/23 via ekomi - garnished with the highest number of stars (5) ... we just have to share that ...

"I have an Olsberg fireplace insert, the production of which has been discontinued and spare parts (especially schamotte) are slowly becoming scarce. Schuba Shop can help as much as possible by buying up existing parts, but certain stones are simply no longer available and that is nationwide. The manufacturer Olsberg makes it easy for itself Adjusted and ready - just customer unfriendly and bad. Contacted the Schuba shop, described the problem and made an appointment. Send the stone that is no longer available as a sample and get a tailor-made stone within a week. That's how service works."

We also received a lot of praise in advance in email correspondence: "Thank you very much for the quick reply and, as your colleague already informed you, I am very impressed by your customer service. From the first correspondence to every consultation, right through to the conclusion of the production of a Chamotte Steines, which is actually no longer available in Germany, everything was perfect. If there is somewhere the opportunity to rate your company, please let me know. Such a service is rare. Thank you very much and keep it up."

Once again at this point: Thank you very much for this great feedback - we will pass the praise on to the team internally and will continue to provide exactly this service. Nice that there are people who share good experiences and can express their joy in this way!

Boards that mean our world


When it comes to high altitudes, precision and constant caution are the order of the day. Boards that mean our world are installed at a height of several hundred meters as scaffolding for chimney renovation. If you don't have a head for heights here, you have no chance. Always at least two people go upstairs. Teamwork is the be-all and end-all. You have to be able to rely on each other and always be highly concentrated. Fuses and appropriate protective clothing are an absolute must in chimney construction. Regular training is essential, because this is the only way to understand that such activities always require full commitment and 100% attention. It is exciting and varied up there in dizzy heights and there is also a great view. In our pictures: Views that only people in the field experience!

Company of the year 2023


We will not soon forget June 16, 2023. In the morning we were awarded first place for our digital success story and in the evening we received the award for company of the year in the sparkling wine cellar in Freyburg. The prize was awarded by the district, the Sparkasse Burgenlandkreis as well as the Naumburger Tageblatt, the Mitteldeutsche Zeitung and the Wochenspiegel.

At the summer reception, our managing director Holger Schulz was present with 5 employees at the event. Our company prevailed against 33 other companies from the Saale-Unstrut-Elster region. It was an eventful evening, with a nice program and culinary delights - of course, a glass of 'Rotkäppchen' was a must to toast on such an evening.

In preparation for our company of the year award on June 16, 2023, an image film was shot that describes our services and our company very well. ... just take a look ...

Our digital success story - 1st place award


We've had a lot going on in the last week. On Tuesday (06/13/23) the day of the open house, on Friday morning for the digital forum in the multimedia center in Halle and in the evening for the summer reception of the Burgenland district in the atrium of the Freyburger Sektkellerei. (more on that in the next post)

In the morning in Halle, the winners of the 'Digital Success Stories from Saxony-Anhalt' competition were awarded. We were among the top six companies and were therefore able to personally present our digital success story to the jury in Magdeburg. We were super surprised that we were awarded 1st place on Friday. In his speech, the chairman of the chamber of crafts, Thomas Keindorf, found many appreciative words about our project involving our online stone configurator.

We were able to take the award with us to Balgstädt that day and had nice conversations with representatives of the Chamber of Crafts, the other winners and exhibitors. Many thanks to the IHK Halle-Dessau for the award and thus the appreciation and recognition of our concept. It is a sign that we are on the right track and that we can contribute to digitization and economic progress in Saxony-Anhalt with our innovative and sustainable changes.

MDR at 4: Filigree made of rock thanks to the unique giant milling machine


"More than six meters wide, four and a half meters high, eleven tons heavy - that's the Thibaut T958 or the Michelangelo among the machines. Because like the Renaissance artist, the giant machine can carve filigree shapes out of a block of stone."

On the 5th of June, 2023, the report on the topic: "Delicate work made of rock thanks to the unique giant milling machine" was broadcast on MDR at four.

A nice contribution that shows what our new stone milling machine can do and makes it easy to understand what our work involves. Duy Tran visited us in Balgstädt at Günter Schulz GmbH & Co. KG and at the schuba shop.

Many thanks to Duy Tran and MDR for the visit, the great report and the good cooperation!

Lining sizer


In February, an order for a southern European customer was carried out in our new production hall. The customer develops, plans and manufactures components as well as complete systems for the processing of powders, granules and bulk materials for a wide variety of industrial sectors. This customer supplied us with a sizer.

A sizer has the following function:
The classifier (sizer) is a unit for classifying solid particles. Ground material (minerals, recycling material, food, toner, etc.), which comes from a mill (shredding unit) in the air flow into the classifier, is sorted according to particle size. The individual particles are separated according to the sinking speed under the influence of grain size, density and grain shape. The separation limit or the desired particle size of the classifying wheel can be set via the speed. Fines that are below the separation limit are transported with the sifting air through the rotor blades of the sifting wheel and discharged in the main air flow at the fines discharge. Coarse grain, which is above the separation limit, is rejected by the sifting wheel and discharged at the coarse material discharge.

All essential parts of the sizer that come into contact with the product are lined in-house with special AL2O3 ceramic blocks and are therefore protected against wear.

The sizer with the dimensions ø400 x 1100mm was lined here in Balgstädt with aluminum oxide plates in small parts by hand. Our experienced employees know exactly what is important. Due to the prefabrication in our house, an uncomplicated and timely completion was possible. The component has been packed securely for transport and has already arrived at the customer. Many thanks to our customers for the trust they have placed in us.

Doing something no one else is doing


Many thanks to Yvonne Bachmann from the DHZ. We were very pleased about your visit and your article afterwards. This was published in the DHZ on 02/17/23.

Visit of Radio SAW - Our apprenticeships are presented


2 employees from Radio SAW visited us on January 31, 2023 to report on the apprenticeship 'bricklayer' and the specialization as a furnace and chimney fitter. As Günter Schulz GmbH & Co. KG, we offer both options for vocational training. The post was sent on 02/06/2023 at around 06:15. It has been reported that as a company we operate nationally and internationally (e.g. in Norway, the USA, China and India) and that our main focus is on chimneys and stoves.

Our employee Karl Röder has been with the company for 14 years and is very familiar with international special orders. For this reason, he was an ideal interview partner: "We cover the entire area from chimney construction, furnace construction, glass furnace construction to refractory linings and wear linings." He said the following about the requirements of a bricklayer: "Physical fitness comes first, be willing to drive a few meters for work, d. H. we are an assembly company. You also have to have a certain understanding of physics and mathematics - you should be able to cope with that.” A basic requirement in this job should be that you enjoy manuel work.

During the training, the trainees learn everything from building walls, plastering and laying plaster to building industrial chimneys. Managing Director Holger Schulz is, among other things, a trained furnace and chimney fitter himself and reports on the company’s areas of activity: “You see a lot of the world, not a month actually goes by without learning something new. From the classic porcelain industry and brickworks to the glass and mobile industry – there is a lot involved.” Holger Schulz also talks about art projects: “These are sculptures in the shape of industrial chimneys. For example, one is in front of the environmental agency in Augsburg. There we completely planned the chimney with the corresponding statics and construction.”

Our company was presented as part of the 'Mission: Training' that Radio SAW set up together with the IKK Gesund plus:
You can also find our apprenticeship positions on the associated website. All further information can be found on our homepage:

The DHZ reports in its issue of January 20th, 2023: Exemplary training companies honored


Wie wir schon berichtet haben wurden wir am 07.12.22 auf dem Schloss Köthen als Vorbildlicher Ausbildungsbetrieb geehrt. Nun berichtete die DHZ in ihrer Ausgabe von 20.01.23 auch davon. Mit einem Foto und Artikel wurden die prämierten Ausbildungsbetriebe vorgestellt.

Diese Auszeichnung ist nicht nur eine Würdigung unserer Arbeit als Ausbildungsbetrieb, auch ein Motivator in diesem Bereich weiter aktiv zu sein. Schon im Februar stehen neue Termine an, um unser Unternehmen aus Ausbildungsbetrieb in regionalen Schulen vorzustellen.

"Not all heroes wear cloaks!"


"Not all heroes wear cloakes!" That is the headline for the speech by Götz Ulrich (district administrator of the Burgenland district) in the booklet accompanying the volunteer card, which has been issued to people who work in volunteering since the end of 2022. Under certain conditions (read at: the card will be issued to you and your partner. With the volunteer card of the Burgenland district you can get various discounts. This is also the case in our schuba shop. You get a 10% discount on all materials all year round.

With the volunteer card, the district would like to thank everyone who works on a voluntary basis in the Burgenland district. We also think that it is important to appreciate volunteer work and to thank people and that is why we are happy to take part in this campaign.

Repair of anti-corrosion coating

In Poland, at the end of 2022, we were commissioned to repair the anti-corrosion coating of a long-standing customer. The condition of the 28 meter high steel chimney was monitored using a drone. In this way, our employees were able to obtain a comprehensive overview of the overall condition. The video analysis enables us to create an exact offer. Monitoring by drone flight saves the very costly deployment of personnel at height, which is normally necessary for this. The work was carried out professionally and according to the agreed deadlines.

Happy New Year


Feuerungsbau Günter Schulz wishes you and your families all the best in the new year!

We look forward to new orders, exciting challenges, nice conversations with our customers and suppliers and a happy, peaceful New Year 2023!

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year


When we look back at 2022, we see some challenges with the extension of our new hall, many exciting customer orders for our industrial furnace and chimney construction and, above all, our schuba shop with a new look and attached configurator. We have been online with the new shop since February. We would like to thank all customers who have placed their trust in us. Also everyone who took the time to give us their feedback / suggestions and also criticism. This is the only way we can continue to optimize and perfect. And we know we're not finished yet.

There will be new ideas, new impulses, new encounters for 2023, which we look forward to with joy. We look forward to new experiences and challenging customer projects. Give us a call and let us know how we can help you with this. Individual solutions and the appropriate professional advice are our specialty.

The Feuerungsbau Schulz team wishes you a merry and above all peaceful Christmas season and a happy new year 2023

Let's do something that will last forever


Cheers to the craft was sung right at the beginning of the Chamber of Crafts award ceremony on December 7th, 2022 at Köthen Castle. Benoby's music video for the song ‚Was für immer bleibt‘ was played. Everyone in the room must have felt goosebumps and enthusiasm, because there were primarily craft businesses, their trainees, members of the Saxony-Anhalt Chamber of Crafts and relatives present. The best trainees were carried out. In addition, 'exemplary training companies', which are member companies of the Saxony-Anhalt chambers of crafts, guilds or district trade associations were awarded. Criteria for this are, for example, the number of trainees, their results in examinations, additional company offers for trainees or acquired qualifications.

We, Günter Schulz GmbH, were among the six winners and were able to take a great trophy and a certificate for the 'exemplary training company' with us to Balgstädt. Our commitment as a training company for crafts was thus recognized. It is an incentive to continue on this path and to find new ways to attract trainees to our industry. It is about helping to shape the new generations and adapting and modernizing the trade to new circumstances. This requires the right employees and we continue to work on finding them and getting them enthusiastic about our trade as furnace and chimney builders.

We took a lot of impressions of the craft in general with us from this afternoon. In the words of welcome from Mr. Runge (President of the Saxony-Anhalt Handicrafts Day), it was clearly emphasized that handicrafts are sustainable. "Crafts don't throw away, crafts repair." Crafts are needed for the energy transition and every day in all other areas. Craftsmanship is tradition and an indispensable part of our lives. In his subsequent speech, it was very important to Mr. Beck (State Secretary in the Ministry of Labour, Social Affairs, Health and Equal Opportunities of the State of Saxony-Anhalt) to strengthen the self-confidence of the skilled trades and to encourage the industry to appear self-confident. He also pointed out equality in trades, which is not always easy, but is extremely important. Because diversity / a high variety / a mix is ​​more profitable for companies and you get different perspectives. These in turn lead to better and more sustainable decisions, and he referred to relevant studies.

So: Let's do something in the craft that will last forever. We would be happy to support you.

Award of the Environmental Alliance Saxony-Anhalt


Yesterday the time had come: we were invited to the award ceremony of the Saxony-Anhalt Environmental Alliance. Various companies that applied with their project this year with outstanding entrepreneurial achievements in the field of resource efficiency were on site.
21 contributions were submitted. Three companies were nominated in each of the categories “Climate and resource-saving corporate management”, “Innovative environmental ideas” and for the special prize. After presenting the companies in an applicant video for the special award, Marko Mühlstein (Managing Director of the State Energy Agency Saxony-Anhalt GmbH) held a laudatory speech for the winning company. When he said it, it quickly became clear to us that we had won.

We are proud to announce that we have won the special prize of the Environmental Alliance Saxony-Anhalt 2022 with our project 'Rainwater collection system for water use for our stone processing centre'. We received a great trophy, beautiful flowers, a certificate and an oversized check with €5,000 in prize money. A cash injection that we can use well, because we are continuing to work on our overall project in order to be able to offer 3D modeling in different stone qualities (using rainwater) within a very short time in the future.

We will report in more detail once we have received the press photos.

Recently in the Naumburger Tageblatt: "Wear-resistant" future


Establishment of a unique 3D configurator and construction of a new production hall mean a major development step for the furnace construction company from Balgstadt.
Here's the whole article
Thanks to Mr. Löffler for the visit and the nice conversation in advance.

Conversion of roof construction


Here at the Balgstädt site, we are now in the final conversion phase to expand our business. We added a large production hall to an existing building. This provides sufficient space for the large components that can be coated and prefabricated on site in the area of ​​wear protection in the future. In addition, an existing warehouse was converted in this context to create space for our multifunctional CNC milling machine (stone processing center). This should be delivered and set up by the end of the year. It is the last piece of the puzzle in our plan to offer custom-made stones. In advance, we installed a 3D configurator in our online shop at

So that there is sufficient freedom of movement for the new milling machine, our roof construction in the existing warehouse was dismantled and reinstalled (see pictures). We have thus created height and will be able to fully utilize all functions of the tiller in the future. We look forward to testing and reporting on these. The working area of ​​the machine is so large that we can process stone slabs measuring 3.50 x 2 m. However, small formats are also possible. We can place several of these on the worktop so that the machine can process them efficiently one after the other.

Custom stone cuts - simply order in our schuba-shop 3D configurator


Interesting for industrial needs:

Here is an example of a somewhat more complex stone cutting. Our customer ordered from the stone configurator at and we were able to cut the stone directly. For comparison, the customer can view the 3D model during the ordering process and can be sure that everything fits.

Application for the prize 'Climate and resource protection as an economic success factor'


We submitted a concept to the environmental alliance for a competition. It is about climate and resource protection as an economic success factor. We were accepted as a member of the environmental alliance in February 2021. Now we're in the final and hoping to win. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

The concept is about our new stone processing center. It works with state-of-the-art CNC stone processing technology, which results in high water consumption because water cooling is used here. We have therefore installed an intelligent rainwater utilization concept with fill level monitoring, which enables us to produce almost independently of drinking water. Due to the filter systems used and a recycling principle for the dirty saw water, only minimal amounts of waste water are produced. For this purpose, 9 storage tanks with a capacity of 170,000 liters were installed in the hall floor of our new building.

With the stone processing center, we are able to bring refractory and natural stones into the desired shapes and to provide them with individual bores and openings in the shortest possible time. If you need cut stones or shaped stones, visit: or go to the configurator in the schuba shop.

"Top Employer Construction 2022" seal of the Construction Industry Association


In February 2022, we received the "Top Employer Construction 2022" seal from the Saxony-Anhalt Construction Industry Association. In addition, Giso Töpfer (CEO of the Saxony-Anhalt Construction Industry Association) was at our location in Balgstädt for the handover to our Managing Director Holger Schulz. A glass stele with the company logo and a certificate were handed over.

In order to obtain the seal, our company, Günter Schulz GmbH & Co. KG, was evaluated according to a 15-point catalog with various criteria. These were i.a. Working hours, further training opportunities, vacation days, equipping employees with personal protective equipment and IT technology, additional offers and also remuneration. We were able to achieve the required number of points to achieve the seal and are happy about this award. This shows our long-standing employees and new applicants that we are an attractive employer and that we have an excellent working environment.

Steel chimney in Chemnitz


At the end of last year, the Chemnitz housing cooperative commissioned us to build a new steel chimney. With the help of a crane, the colored 13.5 m high chimney could be erected at the headquarters in Alfred-Neubert Straße in Chemnitz. Thanks to good coordination and the hard-working hands of everyone involved, the installation could be completed, checked and approved within one morning. In the future, this colored steel chimney will be used to discharge the smoke gases.

Thousands of fireclay bricks for a historic ring kiln


The company Gillrath Ziegel- & Klinkerwerke GmbH & Co. KG is a family business that operates a Hoffmann ring kiln for the production of clinker bricks and clinker brick slips and thus operates the only ring kiln that produces in North Rhine-Westphalia. It is one of the last of its kind and dates from the 18th century.

You can find more information about the ring kiln itself at the following link:

Our task was to completely demolish a furnace section in cooperation with the customer and then rebuild it. For our customer, keeping to the schedule was the top priority. With about 3 weeks of working time "around the clock" we were able to more than meet the scheduled schedule. During this time, thousands of fireclay bricks were installed. In addition to the straight course of the furnace, a section of the very complex "curve" was also renewed, including the entrance doors, flue gas vents and stoke hole openings (pipe openings in the ceiling through which coke is refilled and the fire stoked).

Condition monitoring masonry chimney


In Bavaria, our chimney construction team was asked to monitor the condition of a 70 m masonry chimney. Our camera drone was used to reduce the risk to staff and the time spent on the exam. In addition, an interior inspection was carried out to check the inside of the chimney. The aim was to document existing damage. So it was possible to get a concrete overview of the overall condition and to make an even more precise offer for repairs.

The local customer is a company that we worked with for the first time.

Welcome to the construction industry!


On September 1st, 2021 we will be welcoming two new apprentices to our company. We look forward to starting a new training year together!

They will betrained as a bricklayer in furnace construction with us. There is a lot of variety in the 3 years of training. Various projects are waiting for our newcomers. Sometimes it goes up to chimneys, listed buildings or industrial plants and then again they work on ovens, incineration plants or even on mills. Boredom never arises!

From the engineering department


In the south of Germany we were ordered to a graphitization furnace. First, an inventory was made. Originally it was 'only' about the renovation. However, it turned out that the existing technical documents were insufficient for the conversion and left some unanswered questions. So our engineering department was entrusted with the extensive calculations and the creation of a 3D model. The need for steel, for example, was ultimately higher than originally thought and could now be precisely determined. So there were no unwanted delays due to a lack of raw materials in the renovation. When the order was concluded, the steel tubs with a length of 21 m and a width of 2.20 m each were completely renewed. They were made by our steel construction company HSB and delivered on time for further operation.

Renovation needed


A chimney in Finsterwalde ... Here you can clearly see the signs of the times. The listed masonry chimney is to be renovated. It stands on the site of the former cloth factory, which was built in 1889/1890. The buildings have been empty since 1990. A new cultural center with a town hall is currently being built there, into which the chimney is to be integrated as a monument. A challenging, great project that we are very happy to support.

The aim is to clean the 46 m high chimney, replace damaged clinker bricks and grout the masonry. Furthermore, the climb is to be revised and the old platform at the chimney head dismantled. In future, the chimney will only have a role to play in shaping the cityscape; it is not planned to use it again as an exhaust system. So it's going up high again for our employees. In compliance with all safety regulations and the client's specifications, hard work has been and is being done here.

Here are more details:

Europe is investing here in the future of our country.


For our current project '3D configurator for online shop' we are receiving funding from the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). Further information is available at

Small format work


In a Bavarian plant, a silo that is filled with abrasive raw materials was equipped with a wear-protected filling connection. This filling connection consists of a ceramic-lined, modified Storz hose coupling. Otherwise we line whole mills, but a sure instinct was required here. Because the flange has a diameter of only 65 mm and a height of 185 mm. The lining with aluminum oxide in this format was made to match and glued in place. This job doesn't take up a lot of space, but it does take time and a steady hand.

Vietnam - lining of ball mills

After a long wait for approval to travel to Vietnam, one of our experienced employees is on site. With compliance with all hygiene and quarantine regulations after the trip, he was able to start work on the construction site. The on-site job includes the professional lining of two ball mills. With detailed installation plans, precisely fitting aluminum oxide stones and the corresponding epoxy resin adhesive, he is well equipped and hard at work. He lines the cylinders with a thickness of 50 mm. The manhole and the corresponding cover will also be re-lined. The mills are used to crush mineral raw materials. The planned time on the construction site is several weeks.

Planning, delivery and installation of an exhaust system


The project comprised the modernization of the exhaust gas unit on a gas turbine system, starting with planning, through to production, delivery and assembly.

The following areas were dismantled, newly manufactured by our steel construction and reassembled by our specialist staff from the furnace construction:

- exhaust pipes
- expansion joints
- Exhaust silencer
- Flue gas shut-off valves
- Heat / sound insulation pipelines
- System technology accessories and connection parts

The entire project took around 12 months from planning to complete implementation. Through transparent and close coordination with the customer, the planned time for the project could be adhered and the system was put back into operation as planned. A project in which we were able to use all of our skills in a targeted and professional manner. Herewith once again praise to all employees who were involved in the project! We are very satisfied with the project completion.

Takeover and completion of an order for relining a belt hardening furnace


Our international customer - a manufacturer and developer of fasteners - commissioned us to reload a conveyor belt furnace.
Our tasks included the complete removal of the defective refractory lining in the belt hardening furnace and the storage of the demolition material in containers provided by the customer. However, the main focus was on the professional installation of a refractory lining in the belt hardening furnace in the areas of the ceiling, the side walls, the front wall (furnace entrance), the floor and the front wall (hopper area). The material was delivered at short notice and on time from our own warehouse and by one of our suppliers with whom we have maintained a good and reliable business relationship for years.

We are pleased that we have been repeatedly used as contractors for this customer and thank you for the good cooperation.

New lining of classifier - fast & precise


A new order that we got delivered to the house. A southern European customer delivered a classifier unit, which was re-lined at our company location. A precisely fitting aluminum oxide lining was used as wear protection.

In small-scale manual work, this was assembled according to the construction, which we received in advance. This resulted in a fast, precise and timely execution, in compliance with all customer specifications.

Fröhliche Weihnachten


Wir wünschen fröhliche Weihnachten,
Zeit zur Entspannung,
Besinnung auf die wirklich wichtigen Dinge
und viele Lichtblicke im kommenden Jahr.

Made-to-measure work: project completion at the Imerys Group


At the end of November, we were able to successfully finish the lining of a ball mill with a diameter of 2.46 m for our customer of the Imerys Group.
Our work included the complete engineering, the provision of the necessary materials, the removal of the old mill lining, sandblasting work in preparation and the professional installation of a perfectly fitting wear lining made of aluminum oxide. Smooth bricks were used on the front sides. However, in the mill casing, shaft wedge bricks were used entirely. Our on-site employees delivered a precise result.

The customer's conclusion:
We are very satisfied with the work done in connection with the project of the new brick lining of the ball mill, all work was carried out as planned on schedule and in the required quality. In the end, the work was completed even before the specified deadline. The workflow went smoothly and the communication with the employees was always good and friendly. Overall, the total output performance of your company is definitely absolutely recommendable. Many thanks

International? We can!


In recent years we have been able to win more and more international customers. For example, we are active in the area of wear protection for the repair, refurbishment and new construction of drum and ball mills in countries such as Sri Lanka, Saudi-Arabia, Vietnam, Russia and Spain. This requires some logistical preparation, which we can handle smoothly based on our experience. The organization of flights, accommodations, transfers and other arrangements with our customers is easy for us. Our specialist staff works with the employees on site and - depending on the request and type of order - works in coordination with your team. We would be happy to organize the necessary materials for you! For example, we obtain wear protection ceramics directly from our own warehouse, as we regularly keep them for sale in our Schuba Shop. So we can provide you with supplies at short notice.

We take on your orders quickly, easily and internationally.
