Graphenea announces the closing of a very successful financial year. Sales in 2014 have surpassed 1.2 million USD, more than doubling the result from 2013.
Graphenea is proud to be a profitable business, with a positive cash flow. One of the world's largest graphene producers, the company supplied more than 370 customers in 53 countries. Most of Graphenea's customer base has returned for orders last year, making a statement about the reliably high quality of the graphene on sale.
Testifying to Graphenea's continued efforts to push the boundaries of research and innovation in graphene, the company's research team has filed two additional patent applications in 2014, and published seven scientific publications in high impact journals.
In parallel, the company has increased production capacity and reduced the prices of graphene twice at the beginning of two consecutive years, and is aiming to do the same next year, while still focusing on high quality graphene production for industry and the research community. The company has also signed agreements with several industrial partners to introduce materials further up the supply chain.
Graphenea's financial accounts are audited by PricewaterhouseCoopers. The company is committed to business transparency and clear information to the graphene industry.
Graphenea, headquartered at the nanotechnology cluster CIC nanoGune in San Sebastian, Spain, was established in 2010, and has since grown to be one of the world's largest providers of graphene. Graphenea employs 12 people and exports graphene materials tomore than 370 customers in 53 countries. The company has focused on developing the CVD growth and transfer method, reaching a consistently high quality of its graphene films that researchers can rely on.
Graphenea employs a team of skilled laboratory staff who have brought graphene transfer techniques to a new level, offering the same high quality films on any substrate. Following the trends in cutting-edge research, Graphenea also produces chemically exfoliated graphene, in volumes up to 2,5 litres per package. Graphenea partners with large multinationals to develop custom graphene materials for their applications.
Its research agility and ability to keep pace with the progress of graphene science and technology has allowed Graphenea to become the largest graphene supplier in the Graphene Flagship, a ten year project of the European Commission worth a billion euros. The company keeps a close relation with the world's leading scientists, regularly publishing scientific articles of the highest level.
