Unidym Ramps up Manufacturing to Meet Carbon Nanotube Demand
News Feb 12, 2008
Unidym, Inc, a majority-owned subsidiary of Arrowhead Research Corporation, announced that it is expanding its Houston manufacturing operations to meet the growing demand for high quality carbon nanotubes used by both its transparent electrode business and the market in general.
Unidym, which recently merged with Carbon Nanotechnologies, Inc. (CNI), has its headquarters in Menlo Park, California and carbon nanotube manufacturing operations in Houston, Texas.
"Unidym is ramping up to meet increasing demand for carbon nanotubes from both new and existing customers," said Art Swift, CEO and president. "Projected demand is particularly strong in electronics and composite materials applications. As a result, we are investing in additional production capacity and adding manufacturing, engineering and development personnel."
