2013 Export Awards Series: RHI AG

6. August 2013

Since 1994 the Austrian Federal Economic Chamber and the Austrian Federal Ministry of Economy, Family and Youth have been presenting "Export Awards" to Austrian companies for their exceptional success on international markets. This year the special "Global Player Award 2012" went to RHI AG.  

RHI AG produces refractory products, systems and services which are essential for industrial high-temperature processes exceeding 1,200 degrees Celsius. With around 8,500 employees, 33 production sites and over 70 distribution centres worldwide, the refractory giant is truly a global player. RHI supports more than 10,000 customers from the steel, cement, non-ferrous metals, energy, environment and chemical industries in almost every country in the world.

There are plans to increase revenue from EUR 1.84bn to EUR 3bn by 2020 and push the share generated by emerging markets from 56% to 70%. RHI does not only want to maintain its leading position on the global market, but to expand it in the coming years. The strategy involves expanding the company’s market presence in South America, India, Russia, Southeast Asia and the USA, as well as keeping a close eye on developments in Africa.

The “Global Player Award” recognises companies which hold an exceptionally strong position on the global market, have a comprehensive network abroad and are pioneers in a sector or country.
