HarbisonWalker International (HWI), U.S. supplier of refractory products and services, announces that Stephen Delo has retired as chairman and chief executive officer. The HWI board of directors elects Carol R. Jackson to be HWI’s next chairman and chief executive officer. Jackson was senior vice president and general manager at HWI. 

Under Delo’s leadership at HWI, in less than four years, the company combined three of the top U.S. refractories companies together as one, and reorganized and rebranded as HarbisonWalker International. In February 2017, HWI announced a $30 million investment to build a new, state-of-the-art monolithics plant in South Point, Ohio, that will be operational by early 2018, according to the company.
