Kitchen and bathroom wall panel manufacturer Fibo has completed construction of its new production facility in Norway, as they increase their capacity by over three times.
The expansion of Fibo’s Lyngdal factory, in a £14 million investment, will boost the company’s capacity from 2.5 million m² to 8 million m² per year.
The new facilities will have a positive environmental impact as well, with a 50% reduction in energy cost per m².
The investment is good timing for Fibo UK, which is experiencing strong growth with builders’ merchants nationally.
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 perfect for both refurbishment and new construction projects with panels fitted directly to walls, including tiles, or onto stud partitioning.
