About - ESE Carbon


Carlos Hermida, Founder & CEO

ESE Carbon Company was founded in 2011 by a small, talented team in Jasper, Georgia. More than a decade later, we continue to drive innovation in areas such as tailored fiber placement (TFP), high-pressure resin infusion, engineering design and analysis. We also serve on the SAE Wheel committee, which is developing standards for carbon fiber wheels.

ESE Carbon Company is affiliated with ESE Industries, which is leading the way in industrial carbon fiber applications such as automotive, aerospace and marine industries. We are leveraging the ESE Industries expertise, vertically integrated product development, mold fabrication and composite part manufacturing to bring the E2 carbon fiber wheel to production.
