Furnace Technologies was established in 1994 as a manufacturer of pottery kilns for potters and schools; since then it has developed into a Major supplier of furnaces, kilns, dryers, ovens and tools for the mining and mineral processing industry, laboratory and pottery markets.    
Peter Symonds

Peter started making pottery kilns in his garage in 1991 and as the market and his experience grew he then went on to start Furnace Technologies in 1994.


As the demand from industry grew for more technologically advanced industrial furnaces, Peter sought more information on thermal dynamics and enrolled in a degree course in Applied Computational Physics at Murdoch University, Western Australia.


As well as being a qualified industrial gas fitter, Peter is proficient in the use of AutoCAD design software.
