About us

Established in 1983, Effebi is now European leader in the marine industry thanks to a wide range of quality fibreglass and composite vessels in different sizes.

Effebi works out of a number of different premises in Italy in the Massarosa, Massa and Carrara-Avenza area, covering a total of around 72.500 m² (indoor and outdoor). All the production facilities are fitted with specific, state-of-the-art equipment and systems which ensure products are always of the highest quality. In-house the company has: a laboratory to control raw materials and laminates; a nitrogen production plant to ensure optimal conditions in the stainless steel tanks where the resins are stored; a department where the fibres are stored and cut using numerical control automatic machinery; boiler rooms to maintain the correct temperature and humidity levels inside the plant; a centralised vacuum room; plants with dehumidifiers to produce air for the resin machinery; a joinery department to build wooden mock-ups for moulds and product structures, a painting department for the wooden mock-ups and finished fiberglass products, and a lamination department for the composite materials.

The company’s highly specialised team of experts is always on hand to advise clients on the best technical solutions for their project and it closely monitors every stage of the process: from the initial study, design, mathematical modelling and CAD-CAM for milled models, to the building of the moulds, lamination, the infusion process, production and delivery. 100% quality control to achieve standards which comply with the requirements of the different classification authorities but, more importantly, to ensure customer satisfaction. All this, while remaining faithful to its commitment to protect the environment.

Effebi has always invested in research to improve the environment and promote safety in the workplace and is recognised and approved by all shipping registers (RINA, Lloyd’s Register, Bureau Veritas, American Bureau of Shipping, Norske Veritas and KKK-Japan). Its production also complies with Lloyd’s Register Quality Assurance. In March 2003 it was awarded ISO 9001:2000 certification and in 2005 ISO 14001:2004.
