At our customer’s service for over forty years
IBB is an experienced supplier of OEM product from the realization of the first prototypes to the finished product. For more than 40 years, we have consolidated relationships of trust with the largest European manufacturers of bathroom accessories as well as other product ranges.
IBB is a fully vertically integrated company which controls all manufacturing processes and steps for each and every OEM product we develop.
STYLE RESEARCH AND DESIGN OF THE PRODUCT
Design a customized product
Through strong partnerships with qualified agencies, IBB is able to provide an analysis of the trends that can finalize any specific design or style for the development of new product proposals, taking into account the markets, which our customer wants to address their products.
This means we always design the required product in a personalized way. The products, based on this analysis, are designed for an optimization of production efficiencies and are supplied with an IBB pre-engineering verification.
PRODUCT DEVELOPMENT AND ENGINEERING
From conception to making the idea feasible
IBB is able to realize a detailed engineering plan of the product, employing necessary and suitable tools as well as the appropriate software. All products developed during this phase are previously tested using prototypes of the components by CAD-CAM systems.
The IBB engineering work maintains a continuous collaboration with the customer, in order to improve the product and to simplify and optimize the final production process.
TOOL MAKING AND MOLDING
From the drawing to the product
IBB has the expertise as well as the necessary tools to make the molds for the production of the final engineered products. Our company has experience concerning the production choice for the molds (determination of materials, phases of manufacturing, assembly), as well as for the tooling stage and the final product molding, for zinc alloys, brass, plastics as well as stainless steels.
Production and development is carried out internally at IBB so your confidences are controlled and of paramount importance to us.
Aesthetics and detail quality
When the semi-finished products are produced, IBB is also able to manage the necessary treatments in order to finish a high quality product: the cleaning phases, polishing and tumbling, are carried out with our automated and robotized processes.
Once all details of the pieces have been controlled, they proceed to the final surface treatment for a galvanic or lacquer process. Both processes are carried out in controlled environments and are environmentally certified, to meet the strictest European regulations in this field.
PVD AND ANTIBACTERIAL TREATMENTS
Unique technological coating expertise
In addition to electroplating and lacquering, IBB is able to offer to its customers unique surface finishes, thanks to the partnership with our own sister company Protimlafer, a worldwide leader in decorative PVD treatments (Physical Vapour Depositions).
IBB is able to provide unique coatings with an exclusive color-range using the IS-PRO® treatment, which gives our OEM products, customized aesthetical features suitable for any project choice.
The IS-PRO® treatment, with its unique mechanical strength (increases guarantees on the finish) and antibacterial features (thanks to ABACO® treatment) are in the OEM world difficult for other suppliers to replicate.
Protection and Communication
Upon request, the company can provide valuable support for the realization of specific packaging and marketing materials (displays, brochures etc.).
