Since 1917, Superior Graphite has been committed to three core principles: ingenuity, versatility, and integrity. These principles represent their ability to adapt to ever-changing business and economic conditions, placing them in a position of continuous growth and evolution with their customers.


Superior Graphite has explored the physical and geographical frontiers of its markets. In the late 1970s, this pioneering approach led to the invention of a new, patented furnace technology that revolutionized our product range and transformed the company (Until then, graphite was mainly processed from natural mineral resources or the re-crushing of spent electrodes). They were the first to manufacture graphite on a continuous basis using proprietary technology. They subsequently expanded the boundaries of natural and synthetic graphite purification, as well as the process of synthesizing graphite or other carbon-based materials. Superior Graphite has also explored new avenues in continuous graphitization and developed a number of innovative processes.
