ICRA is a leading manufacturer of ceramic rollers, refractory supports, special parts and products in silicon carbide. It is a family business that has to overcome the challenge of internationalisation thanks to past experience intertwined with innovation, quality, constant research, experimentation and flexibility. The protagonists are, however, always the same: the people, their professionalism, winning ideas and technology. ICRA’s success is a result of more than half a century of experience and a very active attitude towards in-house research and development.
These two levers have allowed the company to move from being a small factory producing refractory products for the steel industry to the solid reality that it is today, while firmly maintaining its roots in ‘Made in Italy’ values and essence. From the arrival of the raw materials to the packaging of the finished product, each process is in fact carried out internally within the company’s headquarters in San Paolo d’Argon, in the province of Bergamo (near Milan). ICRA branded products are fully Italian and their quality is continually verified via checks that are either carried out in department and in the in-house laboratory by highly qualified staff.
