Our Yonvey unit produces carbon and graphite electrodes for use in submerged arc metallurgical furnaces. Electrodes are indispensable in the production of silicon metal and ferroalloys. Yonvey supplies Globe's own plants in the US and Brazil, as well as other silicon metal and alloy producers, mainly in Asia.
Since becoming a part of Globe in May 2008, Yonvey has invested millions of dollars in a program of rapid technological development and physical expansion focused on producing world-class-quality products. Yonvey's production team includes some of the world's leading experts in carbon and graphite manufacturing technology, as well as knowledgeable and experienced technical service professionals. Together, they are committed to meeting the highest industry standards for reliability, and to providing our customers with the technical support necessary to get the best possible performance from our electrodes.
Globe is among the world's largest producers of metallurgical, chemical and solar grade silicon metal and silicon alloys, and we are thus a major consumer of carbon and graphite electrodes. We are committed to achieving the highest standards of electrode reliability for our own plants and those of our electrode customers.
