About Us


Bryant Refractory Company, Inc. was founded in 1954 by F. Carley Bryant. He began Bryant Refractory Company, Inc. (BRC) as a distributor for AP Green Refractory Co.  Over the years he gained a reputation for being a partner for his local customers by providing first rate customer service, quality products, and reliability.  In just a few years BRC became one of the leading distributors for AP Green. 

With this success his son Frank Bryant was eager to join the company and expand it to include refractory installation and steel fabrication under our sister company Bryant Industrial Construction and later refractory anchor manufacturing under subsidiary Hanlock Company. 

The continued success and national reputation of the Bryant Companies brought in the third generation in daughter Lori and son Jay Bryant. The current generation has brought even more growth and expansion through acquisitions, enhancing capabilities, and growing product lines. 

Today Bryant Refractory Company is more than just the material distributor started in 1954, we have evolved into a full service provider of materials, technical engineering and design services, global project management as well as, end user consultations of policies and procedures.
