Founded in 1960 as a sole proprietorship by Karl and Karl-Heinz Krost, Krost Industrieofenbau GmbH can now look back on a nearly 60-year success story.
Initially, the company was active in building construction. The plant and equipment included three concrete mixers with diesel engines, two inclined elevators and two construction containers, a used truck and a moped.
The company has specialized in refractory and industrial furnace construction since 1969. It is a competent and experienced partner for the steel industry in this field.
In 1985, the sole proprietorship became a limited liability company. Since 1986, it has been led by Angelica and Franz-Josef Striedter, the third generation of the family. In 2005, the fourth generation arrived with Alexander Striedter. Krost has been part of the Horn & Co. Group since 2018.
