“I’m proud to be part of an industry that is foundational to the success of every other industry. It’s hard to conceive of a product that at some point in its manufacture didn’t see a refractory. That’s an inspiring thought!”

– Carol Jackson | Chairman & CEO of HarbisonWalker International & President of WRA
