Neill Ricketts, CEO of Versarien plc, commented: “I am delighted to have been invited to join the NGA’s Advisory Board. The NGA is at the forefront of promoting the commercialisation of graphene in the United States and more widely.
“Our involvement with the NGA, coupled with our recently opened US sales office in Palo Alto, California, will enable us to further exploit the significant opportunities we are seeing in the US. We are developing strong relationships globally and having just returned from the UK Government trade delegation to China, where we have recently announced our plans to establish a world leading high quality graphene manufacturing facility and are seeing numerous opportunities, I believe Versarien is extremely well positioned to exploit the opportunities afforded by the adoption of graphene worldwide.”
