Superior Graphite Expansion and Groundbreaking Ceremony Announcement

superior graphite announces the expansion and groundbreaking ceremony on monday, october 30 at 1 p.m. 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.
