ALLENTOWN, PA (September 21, 2007) – Allentown Shotcrete Technology, Inc. was among the more than 40 exhibitors at the 10th Biennial Worldwide Congress of Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories (UNITECR) 2007 in Dresden, Germany from September 18 – 21.

The UNITECR International Executive Board (IEB) is an international non-profit organization existing to contribute to the progress and exchange of industrial knowledge and technologies concerning refractories according to its official by-laws.

“At UNITECR we have the opportunity to meet potential customers from all over the world and discuss with them the latest developments of the refractory industry,” says Bill Allen, Allentown’s sales and marketing manager. “It’s a chance for both Allentown and our customers to share with one another new trends in the refractory industry and where things will be in the upcoming years.”

Allentown showcased its products and technologies in front of more than 800 attendees from over 45 countries representing several industries, including iron and steel, glass, ceramic, non-ferrous metal, cement, chemistry, waste incineration and raw materials.

Allentown also exhibited at the previous UNITECR conference held in Orlando in 2005.

Attendees not only had the opportunity to talk directly with the exhibitors but also participate in panel discussions and hear various guest speakers.

UNITECR is organized in rotation by one of its four Founding Member Organizations; The American Ceramic Society (AcerS), the Association Latinoamericana de Fabricantes de Refractarios (ALAFAR), The German Refractories Association (GRA) and The Technical Association of Refractories (TARJ). This year the conference was organized by the GRA.

The 11th Biennial Worldwide Congress, UNITECR 2009, will be held in Salvador, Brazil, October 13 – 16. This conference is expected to attract the highest attendance ever, due to the appeal of the location and the relatively low cost of the resort.
