Strength, Quality, & A Trusted Name

Chase Nedrow Manufacturing was founded in 1980 by James (Jim) Chase and Charles (Skip) Nedrow to specialize in the design and manufacture of precast refractory products. With the advancement of low moisture, low cement castables of the time, properties approaching that of pressed firebrick were possible using monolithic refractories.Today, with the development of even newer high-tech castables and our high firing capabilities up to 2400 °F, precast products are routinely replacing refractory brick within furnaces, making furnace turnarounds faster than ever.
