At 16, I started with my Dad (Fredrick Martinis Mienie) who has been in the Refractory business for 42 years. My brothers and I learned from him and I started at Tab Refractory's as a carpenter and anchor welder and worked my way up in the company until I reached the position of a Refractory Supervisor. I left Tab and joined a few other companies to learn various types of Furnaces and now I can do all types of Installations to all the fields of Refractory Installations, Shuttering, Gunning, Laying bricks, Installing of Fiber linings, Inspections on furnaces and Boilers and Quality control to Installations, including the handling of material as it is installed. I have a good understanding of the technical side of refractory work and can assist the client on site with what he requires. I have travelled
Extensively to many countries doing Refractory work and am confident meeting people and visiting Engineers and Managers on any plant to get new business for a Company.
