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 1980s.
However, with Fibox products’ acceptance into numerous market 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.
Understanding the US’s market needs, Fibox offers UL listed NEMA type 4, 4X, and 6P enclosures and has consistently pushed the envelope on large polycarbonate enclosures. Only Fibox offers a polycarbonate cabinet enclosure sized up to 32 x 24 x 12 inches with the ARCA – IEC.
The Fibox enclosure range features over 1000 different standard enclosure configurations. Fibox is the industry leader in developing both new products and new technologies for molding thermoplastic polycarbonate enclosures. At Fibox, we consider molding technology an essential part of product development.
For example, the 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-JIC product line, the most recent enclosure family brought to market, offers a new era in enclosure technology. Manufactured in the JIC, standard (interior) enclosure sizes, using injection molded polycarbonate, a high-performance plastic, these stylized electrical enclosures offer ease of customization, robustness, superior chemical resistance wide temperature range. With constant enhancements to the product line, including large-sized cabinets, pre-formed knock-outs, more accessories, and mounting options, the ARCA is ideal for the North American markets.
Product development at Fibox also emphasizes 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 Fibox’s commitment to understanding the needs of its customers. We use input from our global customer base to produce new enclosure ranges, useful accessories, and on-going product improvements and enhancements.
