About us



Our History

US Graphite can trace its history back to 1891, when the company was formed to utilise a Mexican deposit of natural graphite.

Following on from the natural qualities of graphite, USG  soon developed a range of materials to produce carbon brushes and then some years later, the current proprietary  “Graphitar” mechanical carbon/graphite and converted silicon carbide materials.

Now in its third century of incorporation, USG remains a privately held company and is proud to manufacture high quality engineered components from its 3 facilities in the USA, UK, and Mexico and to supply products and technology across the globe.
