About 70% of SGL Group staff are employed in Europe. With the “Technology & Innovation Center” in Meitingen/Germany we are focusing our entire global research and development activities at our biggest site worldwide. This allows us to generate synergies and promote innovations. The main headquarters is in Wiesbaden/Germany.


North America

The availability of clean, renewable hydropower and competitive energy costs are essential factors at the site selected by SGL Group. At our site in Moses Lake/Washington we are producing carbon fibers for use in BMW’s i Series vehicles. The energy required for the production is sourced by hydropower and therefore CO2-friendly.
The headquarters North America is in Charlotte/North Carolina.



With several sites SGL Group serves the Asian market. In countries such as China, Japan and India, materials and products are manufactured for the Business Units CFM and GMS. In this way, the more than 400 employees support the growth targets of the company in all crucial market segments. With a sales share of 27 % in the fiscal year 2016, Asia is the second most important region for SGL Group.
