According to a recent media release from Tata Group, Tata Refractories (TRL) and Indian Refractories Makers’ Association (IRMA) have joined hands to impart training on refractories technology. Accordingly, a three-month training programme has been started in JJ Irani Centre for Learning at TRL, Belpahar, from June 14, 2010. Ten shop floor supervisors from different refractories companies such as Orient Abrasives, ACE Caldery Limited, Maithan Ceramics, Visva Vishal Engineering, Industrial Associates, Servesh Refractories and Raj Ceramics are attending the training programme. There is a scarcity of Refractory professionals which is one of the main reasons for the big demand for trained personnel in refractory industry. Dr. Arup Kumar Chattopadhyay, MD, TRL, who is also the chairman, IRMA, has taken this initiative to meet this requirement of the industry. It is also a step towards cooperation and collaboration among refractories companies in India, opines Dr. Chattopadhyay. B.N. Ghosh, ex-director of TRL and a well known refractories expert inaugurated the training programme in the presence of A. Dasgupta, executive secretary, IRMA; S. Adak, VP, Technology, TRL; and P. Chakrabarty, GM, Technology, TRL. While the HRD department of TRL is coordinating the programme, the faculty support is drawn mostly from Tata Refractories and a few from other industries. TRL, the number one refractories company in India is also a leader in training and development activities. Equipped with a state-of-the-art learning centre, an unique refractories engineering workshop and a host of experienced and knowledgeable faculty among its executives, TRL’s training facilities and competence level are unrivalled.
