About Us

A Company of Innovators

Since our inception in 1886, we have been innovating and finding solutions. The result? Deep knowledge of the steelmaking process that benefits our customers around the world.

We know graphite

In 1879, Cleveland, Ohio, became the City of Light, when it demonstrated the world’s first electric street lamps. We got started supplying the arc carbon that illuminated our hometown, and later the world.

In the years since, we have amassed more than 180 patents and patents pending, while working closely with electric arc furnace (EAF) operators. Our longevity and experience in more than 50 countries has equipped us with exceptional expertise. Whether through insightful solutions or indispensable graphite electrodes, we use that knowledge to help customers transform their operations through reduced costs, increased efficiencies and uninterrupted production flows.

About UsVertical Integration

Even as demand for petroleum needle coke outpaces supply, GrafTech is uniquely positioned to keep our customers’ electric arc furnaces running steadily.

Long-Term Peace of Mind

A market shortage of petroleum needle coke – essential to graphite electrode manufacturing but also increasingly in demand for electric vehicle batteries – can bring electric arc furnaces to a halt. Today, there is no viable alternative to graphite electrodes. GrafTech customers, however, can count on a steady supply of high-performing graphite electrodes because of our substantial vertical integration with Seadrift Coke L.P.
