Tenova LOI Thermprocess celebrates its 50th anniversary

50 years of LOI –a journey through the history of the development of industrial furnace engineering. 

Today's LOI was founded on 01.01.1970 in Essen from the well-known predecessor companies Matthias Ludwig (1934), Ofag (1920), and Indugas (1928). Through innovation and constant technical development, LOI has earned its reputation as one of the world's leading industrial furnace companies. Today it presents a broad portfolio of technologies for the steel, aluminium and automotive industries relying on over 100 years of experience. 

Under the slogan "50 years of LOI | Family & Friends", LOI finally commemorated its 50th anniversary on August 26, 2023 at its new location in Duisburg’s Inner Harbour. Due to the pandemic, this special event had to be postponed beforehand. In the most beautiful weather LOI celebrated with all employees, their families and friends through a colourful range of activities and treats for everyone. One highlight of the day was the immersive experience offered in LOI's digital room, where guests could experience VR in various ways. The anniversary was combined with the inauguration of the “New Home of Innovation” in Duisburg after the relocation in 2021.

On the successful future of the company and the broadness of its portfolio:
