Our History & Who We Are

Our History

Incorporated in 1949 by Mr Bibby, R. Bibby (Engineers) LTD was established. Based in premises in Slough and specialising in the processing of cellulose acetate for the optical market, the journey began. In 1966 the decision to relocate to Callington in Cornwall was made, Mr Bibby & one faithful employee (who later took over the company on Mr Bibby’s retirement) made the leap to Cornwall seeking the lifestyle and country living of Cornwall bringing with them the customers that were already well established. This move determined the companies next 60 years, and is the foundation of the Bibby Engineers LTD of today.

Whilst much has changed in this time, our focus on quality & delivery of injection moulding and tooling has not. Techniques, materials, machines & possibilities have all evolved, and today we pride ourselves in keeping up with technology & advancements whilst producing high quality tooling.

Our name was changed in 1996, to Bibby Engineers LTD, to reflect the capabilities of the business, modernise and bring in a new era of leadership. Since then, we have gone from strength to strength, investing in state-of-the-art equipment and processing capabilities, reinforcing our bonds with existing customers and welcoming new and exciting opportunities with new customers.

2015 spelled a difficult period for the company when an arson attack decimated our Tool Room. Due to the smoke damage but with brooms, shovels and cleaning equipment in hand, the team worked tirelessly to ensure within 24 hours our mould shop was back in action producing mouldings for our customers. Rebuilding the Tool Room took time but has led to the current Tool Room, with modern equipment and the range capabilities we offer today.

Since the fire we have continued on the path of growth, investing in further equipment and building an incredibly capable and skilled team of staff. Whilst welcoming new customers and continuing to support existing customers with new projects and requirements.

In 2024 and onwards Bibby Engineers LTD offers customers state of the art equipment and moulding facilities utilising some of the latest in technologies, our past reminds of just how far technology has come, but also how our business has grown and developed. Here is to another 75+ years! Let’s make history together.
