Fibo invests in new production facility

Fibo has completed construction of its new £14 million production facility in Norway. The investment is good timing for Fibo UK, which is experiencing strong growth with builders’ merchants nationally.

Currently supplying wall panels to over 70,000 bathrooms a year across more than 10 European countries, the expansion of the Lyngdal factory, in South Norway, boosts Fibo’s capacity from 2.5 million m² to 8 million m² per year. The new Norwegian facilities will have a positive environmental impact too with a 50% reduction in energy cost per m² from 2.5 kWh/m² to 1.1 kWh/m².

Developed in Norway in 1952 and available in the UK since 1981, Fibo’s wall panels are a stylish yet practical way of enhancing walls, from high-end domestic projects and hotels, to leisure centres and social housing. They are said to be perfect for both refurbishment and new construction projects with panels fitted directly to walls, including tiles, or onto stud partitioning. The Aqualock system means that the wall panels are quick and easy to install. The simple tongue-and-groove system means that contractors don’t need to sub-contract the job to tilers, saving further time and money.

Panels are manufactured to ISO 9001 quality standard and are available in a range of colours and finishes. The wall panels also come with a 15-year guarantee.
