About Us

Dalmia Bharat Refractories Limited (DBRL) stands as a beacon of Indian entrepreneurial spirit, having forged an enduring legacy of customer service since its inception in 1939.

In a strategic move to streamline operations and explore new avenues of growth, DBRL has divested its entire refractory business, except for the magnesia carbon business and its manufacturing located in China. This decision marks a pivotal moment in DBRL's journey, opening doors to exciting opportunities in uncharted territories.

DBRL is now focusing on its Magnesia Carbon business under its brand name DMC.

DBRL's unwavering commitment to growth and innovation is exemplified by its recent acquisition of Birla Tyres Limited's tyre business through a resolution plan approved by the National Company Law Tribunal in October 2023. This bold venture into a domain entirely new to DBRL's established expertise signifies the company's unwavering spirit of exploration and adaptability.

DBRL's foray into the tyre business is not merely a diversification strategy; it is a testament to the company's unwavering belief in its ability to excel in new arenas. With its rich legacy of customer-centricity, operational excellence, and a management team brimming with diverse experience, DBRL is poised to conquer new frontiers in the tyre industry.

As DBRL embarks on this exciting new chapter, it carries with it the values that have defined its success for over eight decades – a commitment to quality, innovation, and customer satisfaction.
