Nanoledge was founded in March 2001 in Montpellier, France, as a spin-off company from research initiatives undertaken by the internationally known Patrick Bernier, (current director of CNRS USA in Washington), at the joint laboratory of the French University of Montpellier and the CNRS. Initially, the company focused on the production of carbon nanotubes: it was the first producer of carbon nanotubes in Europe. However, since 2002, the company has specialized in carbon nanotube integration for the composite industry, thereby moving away from its status as a producer of carbon nanotubes.
Nanoledge is the European leader in the design of industrial standard nanotube-based materials and to date has targeted the following markets: aeronautics, automobile, sports, telecom's, plastics processing, renewable energy sources, building and public works and electronics.
However, since the beginning of 2006, the company has focused its activity exclusively in the sports sector for commercial applications, developing a top-of-the-line tennis racquet in partnership with the company Babolat, which is already sold in retail stores.
