Asbury's 'King Carbon' has more to achieve in graphite sector
Published: Wednesday, 01 May 2019
“I’ve always enjoyed brainstorming ideas with engineers, asking what else we can develop using graphite.” Stephen Riddle, chief executive officer of Asbury Carbons, speaks to Rose Pengelly about his passion for carbon, and why even four decades of experience does not mean you have seen everything in graphite.
Stephen Riddle has become something of a
fixture of the global graphite industry.
This year, 2019, marks his 40th year at Asbury Carbons, the
124-year-old company founded by Riddle’s
great-grandfather, based in the small town of Asbury, in the US
state of New Jersey.
