Over 16 Years of Industry Experience and Exposure

Core Refractory Systems was founded in 2006 by Ron Knieper and Paul Roddy as a stocking distributor of refractory and industrial materials to the industrial construction and maintenance market. They brought their experience that includes technical sales and area management with AP Green, Premier Refractories, and Vesuvius. With over 50 years of experience between the two men, Core has a solid foundation that we will build on for years to come. One of our goals is to pursue areas of business that support current customers and explore new market segments. We are transitioning into the second generation to help achieve that goal. Our partnership with large manufacturers allows us access to world class engineered solutions. We greatly appreciate our customers and hope to learn how we can help you.
