Yorkshire based Fibrelite, the world’s leading and largest manufacturer of fibreglass access covers has won the Yorkshire Exporter Award, sponsored by Leeds Metropolitan University. The judging panel included The Bank of England.

“In on-going tough economic times it is more important than ever to highlight business success in the region,” commented Ian Briggs, Editor of

Fibrelite’s strategy is based on significant growth in export sales particularly into new industry applications as an alternative to metal. Fibrelite currently supply over 70 countries around the world. “We are an international thinking business not a UK company trading abroad,” says Ian Thompson, Managing Director who accepted the award.

Fibrelite developed the innovative ‘lightweight’ composite cover for petrol station forecourts and from there quickly went on to be adopted worldwide. Fibrelite is considered as the industry standard by the major international oil companies and continues to lead the way in composite innovation. Many industries including water treatment, railways, telecommunications, power stations and other utilities are already specifying composite as an alternative to metal and concrete.
