March 2021

Welcome to the March issue of Furnaces International!

This issue marks a whole year since ‘working from home’ became more than something you just did on a Friday when you knew you also had someone coming to fix the boiler...

It’s been a strange and tough year for many industries, but with a glimmer of hope on the horizon, Fontes Refractories explains how it has managed to remain a key player during this time on page 26.

A shift in the way we work has also meant that face-to-face networking and industry exhibitions have been put on hold over recent months. This will have affected some more than others - I know I have missed elements of travel and meeting people, but it has also given me time to focus on specific projects and make more of an effort to communicate with contacts on a regular basis.

One way we have worked to keep our sectors connected is through virtual events, conferences and webinars. We know it’s not the same as a live event, but it gives people a platform to meet and discuss new projects and plan for the future.

For this reason, we are also launching the Future of Furnaces Online Summit, which will take place on 14th - 15th September. This online event will unite the glass, aluminium and steel sectors to discuss overcoming heat treatment challenges and present a collaborative approach to bring the Furnace of the Future to life. Keep following to find out more about how you can be involved!
