The Evolution of Graphyte®

We also manufacture and market products designed to help mitigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

Early Beginnings

Founded by Gerard Panganiban in 2004, Graphyte® Technologies was originally called G-Designs[1][2][3][4].

Back then, Gerard was also freelancing as a web designer and developer, while also working full time in the same field.

After moving to the United States with his family from the UAE and finishing his MS in Human Computer Interaction at DePaul University, Gerard rebranded his company, ultimately calling it Graphyte® Technologies in 2018.

In 2019, Graphyte® Technologies was officially registered as a limited liability company (LLC) in the state of Illinois.

According to Gerard, the name Graphyte® is derived from the name of a carbon-based mineral called “graphite,” which can be turned into a diamond (and vice versa). Graphite is used extensively in writing implements, paints, automotive and sports equipment manufacturing.

And just like versatile graphite, Graphyte® Technologies is envisioned to grow and expand its service and product offerings globally in the coming years.

Graphyte® Technologies is wholly founder owned and funded.
