FIBRO, known for high precision Standard Parts (Used in Die & mould) and Rotary Tables, inaugurated its second phase of Indian operations near Pune on 28th Feb, 2019 in the hands of Mr. Klemens Schmeiderer- Speaker of the board of LÄPPLE group and Mr. Jürgen Gurt- Managing Director of FIBRO GmbH, the part of LÄPPLE group.
On the 50th Anniversary year of FIBRO GmbH, Germany i.e. in 2008 FIBRO India was established in a rented place and subsequently it moved to its own current place in Chakan, Pune during 2013.It started primarily to manufacture standard parts for Indian customers as well as for FIBRO Germany and other group companies abroad. The basic concept was ‘German Precision Crafted in India’. In the whole LÄPPLE group, this has been the first manufacturing unit outside Germany. Having tested the success for standard parts in India, the FIBRO management decided to delegate the Rotary Table business also to FIBRO India in 2015. However, FIBRO management realized that the Rotary table business also should follow ‘Standard Parts’ business model i.e. local manufacturing. As a result, FIBRO India acquired the neighboring plot and constructed plant primarily for Rotary Tables which was inaugurated on 28th Feb. 2019.
Incidentally, the LÄPPLE group is completing 100 years in 2019. The LÄPPLE is primarily in automotive stamping like skin panels and critical sub-assemblies for reputed European auto giants like Mercedes Benz, Audi, BMW, VolksWagen and Porsche etc.
FIBRO are the pioneers in Rotary Tables for Automation and Metal cutting in a very wide range. The largest table manufactured by FIBRO is of 6-meter diameter and capable of carrying 400Tons work load.
During the inauguration, Mr. Klemens Schmeiderer said that FIBRO India has been the major milestone for the whole LÄPPLE group as a part of its Globalization strategy and he is happy with the results. Mr. Jürgen Gurt said that they are planning to invest more for localization of additional products for Standard parts and Rotary Tables. He also added that the products manufactured by FIBRO India are for Global market as such they ensure the strict quality standards are maintained at FIBRO India.
