Company development Poco Graphite expands facilities
Entegris-owned Poco Graphite has announced that the company will take over facilities that have been formerly used by Superior Graphite. The factory including its assets and its current workforce is located in Russelville, Arkansas, and was used as a small diameter graphite electrode factory.
Poco Graphite is known for producing speciality chemicals as well as materials for microelectronics and other industries.
Entegris Senior Vice President of Specialty Chemicals and Engineered Materials, Stuart Tison, explained in a statement, why this was a neccesary step to take: “We continue to invest in research, development, and production of high-performance materials, and we believe the facility in Russellville, owned by Superior Graphite, will help us to meet the growing demands of the high-performance materials market.”
