Superior Graphite Expansion and Groundbreaking Ceremony Announcement

Dec 6, 2017

New Specialty Carbon Plant Groundbreaking at Hopkinsville, KY
 

October 17, 2017 - Superior Graphite announces the expansion and groundbreaking ceremony on Monday, October 30th at 1 pm for the new Specialty Carbon Plant adjacent to one of the company's existing manufacturing facilities in Hopkinsville, KY. This expansion is tied to the rapidly developing demand for high purity materials, and will serve to satisfy Superior Graphite's customers' growing needs.

 

The expansion consists of construction of the new Specialty Carbon Plant and extension of existing warehouse facilities. The plant will perform high-temperature purification of specialty carbons and graphites, and is designed to meet the increased demand for synthetic and natural high-purity materials. The project is scheduled to be completed by the end of 2018, with production starting in the first quarter of 2019. Once the facility is fully operational, it will employ 20 people, thus creating new high-tech local jobs, mainly in engineering.
