Graphenea has opened a branch in the USA to assist more immediate service of the company's North American customers. The US branch, Graphenea Inc, is based in Cambridge (Boston), MA, due to the close relation that the company has with research giants Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and Harvard. Apart from developing collaborative projects with those two partners, and acting as a sales outpost for its renown high-quality graphene, Graphenea Inc will set up an “Applications Laboratory” to help develop custom graphene materials.

“The US outpost of Graphenea will continue and enhance the research excellence of the company, with planned hirings of full time R&D and Business Development personnel”, says Jesus de la Fuente, CEO of Graphenea. “The most pronounced application directions that we will pursue will be advanced polymers, thermal interface materials, energy storage, and (bio)sensors.”

With this opening the company takes the last step to consolidate a network of distributors and own offices to assist better its customers. 2014 has been the year of consolidation of Graphenea’s global presence. The existing distribution network, in Japan and Taiwan, has been expanded with new distribution agreements South Korea and Singapore, two main poles of graphene applications development.

The company, which is a leading provider of graphene materials, also has a strong position in collaborative projects with industrial partners for the development of graphene applications. “Our participation as a Graphene Flagship partner has boosted the number of projects the company is working on. Our objective for 2015 is to expand this capability and start new collaborative projects with a number of US and Asian companies”, says Iñigo Charola, Business Development Director of Graphenea.
