IFB REFRACTORIES: Alliance of Tradition and Modernity

Founded in 1919, IFB REFRACTORIES is a century-old company specialising in the manufacture of bricks and other special insulating and refractory parts.

Located in Buzançais, in the heart of France, our company serves the major European and overseas industrial markets.

The impeccable quality of IFB REFRACTORIES products is based on more than a century of know-how and experience. It enables us to export more than 85% of our production to the most demanding international markets.

Our raw materials are French and most often local. They are carefully selected and are subject to permanent quality controls. Our production is 100% made in France and contributes to the respect of the environment in the same way as our products are designed to reduce the carbon footprint of our customers.

Our company has been awarded the label “Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant” (Living Heritage Company), which recognises the excellence of exceptional French know-how and tradition.

We manufacture a very wide range of standard or customised insulating fire bricks and pieces. Our reactivity enables us to make a feasibility study and send you a quotation within 48 hours. Do not hesitate to contact us, we will be happy to help you.

Deeply anchored in its roots and resolutely turned towards the future, IFB REFRACTORIES continues to serve its customers between tradition and modernity…
