Cobb Lloyd Refractories was originally established in Northern Ireland in 1965 as Cobb Refractories and was generally involved in dense refractory installations within the power generation industries and the construction of industrial chimneys.
From 1999, Cobb expanded to the mainland UK and developed into a leading contractor within the UK refractory industry with an excellent reputation for quality of workmanship together with a first class safety record. In 2011 Cobb Refractories and Lloyd Refractory Insulation Systems, a leading independent low thermal mass refractory contractor, merged to create the highly experienced refractory contracting Company - COBB LLOYD Refractories Limited.
The Company now has a strong market presence within many industries and successfully carries out major refractory contracts in sectors including: Incineration, Iron and steel forging/heat treatment, aluminium, power generation and petrochemicals.
Both companies’ different areas of expertise complement each other well, making COBB LLOYD a formidable force in the refractories installation market. The company is now perfectly placed to offer complete turnkey packages to our customers. The extensive experience of the management within the refractories market enables COBB LLOYD to offer the best possible service and highest quality installations to our customers.
