Celtig forms new subsidiary to license its CicarboTM graphene production technology to serve Asian markets (July 8, 2016, Knoxville, TN, USA—Celtig LLC.)
CELTIG LLC, a Tennessee Limited Liability Company located in Knoxville, is pleased to announce its investment in SinaGraphene Ltd., located on Zhifu Bay in Yantai, Shandong Province, China. This new subsidiary, Sina, will be the exclusive licensed producer of Celtig’s signature product line, Cicarbo Graphene, for distribution to the Asian markets. Sina will be led by CEO Dr. Shuguang Li, a graduate of the Dalian Institute of Chemical Physics and the University of Twente, previously served as the Director of the Membrane Research Center at the Dalian Institute and co-founded Dalian Eurofilm Industrial Ltd. in 2000. Dr. Li has been a member of Celtig’s Board of Advisors since its establishment in 2015.
Brian Edwards, CEO of Celtig, spoke enthusiastically of the new facility and cooperation agreement. “The new facility has tremendous potential to open up the Asian markets to Celtig and to increase substantially our production capacity. Sina’s strategic location along the coast of the East China Sea in an area with the richest reserves of high quality natural graphite made Shandong Province the ideal location for establishing our new manufacturing facility in terms of raw materials as well as logistics. We anticipate a fully functioning facility by the end of summer.” Sina CEO, Shuguang Li, was equally excited about the prospects of the new subsidiary. “We are very pleased to become the exclusive licensee of Celtig’s CicarboTM graphene for Asian and world markets. We believe that the timing is perfect to catch the next wave in international graphene production and to capitalize on Celtig’s new proprietary technology in leading this new era of industrial graphene adoption.”
Sina’s new production facility will open in Yantai in July of 2016 with the capacity to increase the worldwide production capacity of Cicarbo graphene to 1,000 kg per month, effectively tripling the production of Celtig’s US facility. Further expansion is underway to achieve a production level of 5,000 kg per month by the beginning of 2017.
