Rooted in Refractory
- We are a family-owned business based in Anniston, Alabama. Our roots date back to Los Angeles in 1950, and since then we’ve continued to evolve under the leadership of Jim Farrell. Farrell, company president and owner, has more than 42 years of experience.
- Our most recent expansion was in 2006 when we purchased our current facility, a 70,000-square-foot building on 13 acres in Anniston. In 2007, a 1,600-square-foot research, development and training facility was added to the manufacturing building. Neal Manufacturing, manufacturer of asphalt pavement maintenance equipment, partnered with us in 2013 and operates as a division of Blastcrete.
