Company History: Sid W. Richardson, a successful oil wildcatter with wells in Texas, New Mexico, and Louisiana, founded Sid Richardson Company in 1947 to enhance the value of his newly discovered Keystone Gas Field in West Texas. A year later he formed Sid Richardson Carbon and Gasoline Co. when he purchased a channel black plant in Odessa, Texas. In partnership with his nephew, Perry R. Bass, he began a sustained period of expansion. While the Odessa plant eventually closed, the company became a leading manufacturer of oil furnace carbon black by building plants in Big Spring, Texas (1961) and Addis, Louisiana (1968). This was followed by the purchase of the Borger, Texas plant (1986). In addition to these manufacturing facilities, a research center was built in Fort Worth, Texas (1972) and a pilot plant in Big Spring, Texas (1982). Sales, Customer Service and Technical Service are located in Akron, Ohio. Corporate headquarters are located in downtown Fort Worth, Texas.

Sid Richardson Carbon & Energy Co. has demonstrated a proven record of steady and successful growth through continued expansion and process/product improvement. Two of the manufacturing facilities produce 55 MW of electricity through cogeneration and exports approximately 50% to the deregulated market. Today, the company provides an annual production capacity in excess of 970 million pounds (440 thousand metric tons) of furnace carbon black, including over 40 grades of ASTM and specialty carbon blacks to more than 80 companies.
