Manufacturing & supply chain

Manufacturing and supply chain

Our strategically placed manufacturing and distribution facilities ensure that our clients receive high quality proppant and technologies every time, wherever and whenever they need them.

Setting the industry standard

CARBO has the capacity to produces over 2 billion pounds of ceramic proppant every year. By tracking over 2,000 data points during production, we ensure that every single proppant pellet is highly engineered and precisely produced. We have six state-of-the-art manufacturing plants – four located in the U.S., and one each in Russia and China. Our world-class manufacturing plants and processes are the result of more than 30 years at the forefront of the industry.

Supply-chain security

We own or control high quality kaolin reserves strategically located near our Georgia and Alabama plants. These reserves provide sufficient feedstock for over a decade of product manufacture at our largest plants. Environmental responsibility and sustainability are integral to the company’s long-term strategy. CARBO ensures that the reclamation of the land we use is returned in its same condition before we arrived.

Effective, efficient distribution

CARBO has the most extensive distribution network in the proppant industry. Warehouses and stocking facilities around the globe enable us to stage our products in areas of high demand.
