Employing around 5,100 people, we are a global company with more than 29 high-performing production sites in Europe, North America, and Asia. Thanks to our extensive sales network, we are close to our customers and their markets.
Our core business comprises four business units: Carbon Fibers (CF), Composite Solutions (CS), Graphite Solutions (GS) and Process Technology (PT).
We have more than 40 years of experience with carbon fibers and composite materials. Our own carbon fiber, produced in Europe and North America, forms the basis for all processing stages of composite applications. From precursor, carbon fibers and textiles to pre-impregnated and thermoplastic materials - benefit from our diverse processing technologies and comprehensive production, material and application know-how.
In high-tech applications requiring high strength and stiffness combined with light weight, our composite solutions based on carbon and glass fibers are indispensable. Whether in the automotive, aerospace, energy or industrial sectors: we, in partnership with you, find the right material for your application, develop new components, and support implementation of efficient small and large scale production
We are one of the world’s leading experts in specialty graphites. We have in-depth knowledge of the exceptional properties of graphite in all its forms and we know how it behaves in a wide range of processes and in combination with other materials. We are a sought-after development partner and solution provider for our customers, and we support them with our expertise and continuously improved graphite components. We cover all processing stages and monitor the entire value chain, which enables us to guarantee the particularly high and consistent quality of our materials. At the same time, we assist our customers with the ongoing development of their production processes and support them in their growth. Thanks to the size and strength of our business, we can effortlessly manage everything, from rapidly growing quantities to the ramp-up of full production.
The area of process technology is about the construction of large-scale plants for industrial applications. In addition to individual components and equipment, SGL Carbon also offers complete systems and engineering know-how from more than 70 years of experience. Tailor-made, innovative and resource-efficient solutions are developed, or strategic partnerships are concluded with customers, in a wide variety of corrosive applications: from hydrochloric acid synthesis, concentration and dilution systems for a wide variety of acids, to absorption and desorption systems.
