After breaking ground a little over a year ago, Allied Mineral Products’ current expansion includes a new manufacturing facility in Pell City, Alabama.

When Allied purchased Riverside Refractories in 2017, they acquired two locations in Alabama — Anniston and Pell City. To better serve its local customer base in the southeast region, Allied combined both locations into one new facility.

The Pell City facility joins Allied’s list of U.S. manufacturing operations in Columbus, Ohio; Brownsville, Texas; and Chehalis, Washington.

During the ribbon cutting ceremony, a fountain was dedicated to the Morris family (operators of the former Riverside Refractories) for their service to the refractory industry, local community, and their employees.

Allied Mineral Products is a leading global manufacturer of monolithic refractories and precast refractory shapes with 12 worldwide manufacturing facilities, five precast shapes facilities, and three research and technology centers.

Headquartered in Columbus, Ohio, Allied serves a wide variety of industries with innovative refractory solutions and exceptional service and support, backed by expert engineering and research teams. Allied is proud to be an employee-owned company.
