Enclosures – Non-Metallic

In 1997, Fibox Inc. was established to import and market Fibox enclosures in the United States. While the name Fibox was new to the US, our products were not. Fibox enclosures were sold in the United States on a private label basis to other enclosure manufacturers since the early 1980′s. But with the scope of Fibox products growing larger, and the acceptance of Fibox products into numerous growth segments, like the automation and process control industries, corporate management felt the time was right to establish the US subsidiary and move beyond the traditional electrical wholesaling industry. Fibox Inc. was born.

Fibox Inc. in the United States, a subsidiary of Fibox Enclosure Systems, is located in Maryland, between Baltimore and Washington, DC. This site was selected for its excellent transportation infrastructure, with the deep water Port of Baltimore, the rapidly expanding air hub, BWI Airport, and excellent interstate highway connections. The Maryland location is a fully staffed Fibox Service Center charged with the marketing and sales of all Fibox products. We maintain a large warehouse stocked only with Fibox RoHS compliant products. In 2004, Fibox Inc. added full service, enclosure customization capabilities at its Baltimore, MD offices and warehouse.

Since 1997, the Fibox Brand has grown in stature and recognition within the enclosure industry. Fibox Inc. exhibits at major trade shows, advertises in both electronic and print media, and is a frequent editorial contributor to technical industry publications. Fibox is now considered one of the leading US suppliers of hostile environment enclosures and services customers throughout the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

Experience

Fibox Enclosure Systems, a division of a Finnish company, Fibox Oy Ab, is one of the largest enclosure manufacturers in the world, and is the market leader in thermoplastic enclosures used for protecting electrical and electronic components in hostile and hazardous environments. Fibox recently celebrated over 40 years as a designer and manufacturer of thermoplastic enclosures. Originally a division of the giant Fiskars Corp., Fibox (then called Fiskars Enclosure) pioneered in 1966 the injection molding of polycarbonate for use in the electrical industry. In addition, to pioneering products, Fibox has developed more than 17 ranges of product, all available in a wide range of sizes.

Since leaving the Fiskars’ group in 1991, Fibox Enclosure Systems has expanded manufacturing and added sales and marketing service centers. Currently there are three manufacturing sites located in Finland, one in Korea, and one in Guangzhou, China. Fibox has eight Field Service Centers located in major European countries, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

Fibox Oy Ab earned the ISO 9001:1994 Quality Certification for all its operations in 1992. Fibox voluntarily submits its products for third party testing and evaluation, and currently has many third party listings including, UL, CSA, FIMKO, DNV, LR, etc. Fibox enclosures comply with EN 60529.

Whatever your application, the Fibox enclosure family features the widest range of high quality enclosures for the packaging and protection of electrical and electronic components and systems. Enclosures can be delivered in standard off-the-shelf configurations or customized to your exact specifications.

Product Development

The Fibox enclosure range features over 1000 different standard enclosures made of polycarbonate, ABS, fiberglass, and aluminum. Fibox is the industry leader in developing both new products and new technologies for molding thermoplastic enclosures. At Fibox, we consider molding technology an essential part of product development.

For example, the new Fibox MNX enclosure is the first to utilize direct injection of the enclosure gasket material during the body molding process. This new process ensures precision molding of the gasket, guaranteeing superior enclosure protection ratings. Fibox is the only manufacturer applying this technology to enclosures.

The state-of-the-art ARCA product line, the most recent enclosure family brought to market, offers a new era in enclosure technology. Manufactured in standard interior enclosure sizes, using injection molded polycarbonate, a high performance plastic, these stylized electrical enclosures offer ease of customization, robustness, superior chemical resistance, and wide temperature range.

Product development at Fibox also puts emphasis on multiple slide technology for mold construction. While much more costly, this type of mold provides our OEM customers cost-effective alternatives for modifying standard enclosures to meet their specific needs.

Equally important to our technical leadership, is the Fibox commitment to understanding the needs of its customers. All our products are designed in close cooperation with our customers. We use input from our global customer base to produce new enclosure ranges, useful accessories, and on-going product improvements and enhancements.
