NAA BE Member Company Profile: Fibet (UK) Ltd
Fibet (UK) Ltd is part of a large privately-owned Italian Group focused on the manufacture of a significant range of anti-vibration and isolation mounts for a wide range of disparate market sectors.
The Fibet Group was formed in 1952 to support the automotive industry with the development and manufacture of rubber-to-metal bonded parts and other elastomer components. Subsequently the company expanded into other sectors which include earthmoving, off-road machines, agricultural machinery, generators, railway industries, compressors, wind turbines and general engineering applications to name a few.
Fibet has been operating as an independent family-run business for over 60 years, and is now renowned as one of the world leaders in the field of the mechanical application of elastomer, supported with the largest range of anti-vibration and isolation products on the market.
Fibet also offers a full, bespoke solution service for projects that cannot utilise its standard range of products. This service incorporates a comprehensive design, development and implementation service – project managed by Fibet UK to ensure that the customer is fully supported throughout the development process.
Fibet’s in-house facilities to support this service include an ability to optimise the manufacturing method to suit the volume requirements of the customer via its extensive range of production equipment – all supported by the company’s in-house tool room and laboratory.
Fibet is able to provide customers with a comprehensive range of test methodologies to assure the quality, functionality and durability of its products. Where necessary, it is also able to provide lifecycle or even abuse load testing to validate the products in accordance with its customers’ specific requirements – especially if the products are likely to be subjected to unusual or difficult environmental conditions.
As all Fibet’s key resources are managed in-house, its lead times from concept to implementation are the shortest within its market – which ensures that the company delivers in line with its customers’ demanding time plan. This has resulted in Fibet being the preferred supplier to a large number of major OEMs, as it provides them with their products on time, to cost and to specification.
Fibet’s personal – yet professional – service, technical expertise and responsiveness surpasses any other companies within the industry and these are the key reasons why customers continue to use Fibet to support their requirements.
