Our APPROACH

GMG is customer led, working with global manufacturers in targeted industries to understand their challenges with innovation and sustainability.

We work hand-in-hand with our customers to  create customised graphene products based on specific parameters.

We work with you to determine which graphene gives the best results for your products.  We can supply this graphene to you in bulk quantities or we can co-locate at your production facility creating graphene on-site.

GRAPHENE

EMPOWERING INNOVATION

Our Story

OUR STORY

GMG is a global technology business empowering innovation across industries through the bulk supply of Graphene.

Customer led, GMG has a vision to unlock the incredible variety of applications that until now, have been restricted to research labs.

GMG’s proprietary production process allows continuous, bulk supply for our customers at a lower cost than existing production methods.

This has been a journey of continual innovation by founder Craig Nicol and a team of high-performance executives, each with decades of experience in one of world’s largest energy companies. In 2016, Craig used his energy and nanoparticle pharmaceutical manufacturing business experience to create a business to manufacture bulk graphene to disrupt unsustainable manufacturing practices and enhance society.

He assembled a small team of highly skilled engineers and business people, all passionate about graphene’s potential to change the way we build, drive, and live. The team has successfully engineered a flexible process that delivered high quality graphene at a fraction of the cost of existing production methods.

The GMG team has continued to grow, and we are now engaging with large global manufacturers who want to improve their products by embracing graphene. These companies are undertaking research and trials as they prepare to leverage the strengths and capabilities of different types of graphene nanoplatelets.Our GMG team is constantly refining the graphene production process and producing graphene to the exacting requirements each customer demands for different applications in order to reach the best application outcome.

Now, working alongside future customers and leading universities, the team continue to learn, develop and work to implement this ground-breaking technology.
