There would appear to be lots happening at Poland based furnace manufacturer SECO/WARWICK and we are looking forward to telling you about some of it, both today and in the near future. We can share that the company will soon have a new CEO as Pawel Wyrzykowski is no longer with the company as of last week. We actually interviewed Pawel a few years back and his interview can still be found at August1st of this year we will have an interview with the new CEO which we are sure you will find interesting. However prior to that we will be meeting with the SECO team during their press day which will be held during the upcoming Thermprocess exhibition in Dusseldorf, Germany in a couple of weeks. In the meantime we leave you with this press release just sent out by their Retech Systems subsidiary.

“Retech Systems, a subsidiary of SECO/WARWICK Group, supplied two vacuum induction melting (VIM) systems to Siemens Power and Gas division. The VIM systems will play a key role in the casting of components such as turbine blades and vanes for the power-generation industry. One VIM directional solidification/single crystal/equiax pitless (VIM DS/SC/EQ) combination casting furnace and one VIM directional solidification/single crystal (DS/SC) casting furnace were installed. To meet market demand, Siemens is planning for more furnaces (pitless VIM DS/SC casting furnace systems) to be installed soon.”
