Amiblu is the world’s largest supplier of GRP pipe systems and solutions

Over six decades of innovation, experience and development in the GRP pipe industry.

Hobas and Flowtite glassfiber reinforced plastic pipe systems by Amiblu are the product of over six decades of innovation, experience and development. We are the largest producer and technology partner for GRP pipes in the world. Because of our composite engineering and material science skills, we offer a product with an extremely long life expectancy.

Amiblu’s two specialist technologies – Hobas centrifugally cast and Flowtite filament wound solutions – complement each other perfectly. Both product lines replace traditional corrosion sensitive materials like concrete, iron and steel. And being made of reinforced plastics, they match traditional materials for strength and hugely outperform them on weight, ease of handling, longevity and all-round responsibility.
