Our history

Len Reif established Fireglass Design Panels (FDP) in 1999, as a result of his experience working in the bus building industry. Len started out manufacturing fibreglass components specifically for the bus and coach sector.

Now employing more than 40 people across two manufacturing sites, FDP Composites is today operated by directors, John and Leona Reif. The brother and sister team took over the business in 2009 when their father Len Reif retired from his long career in the bus building industry.

FDP Composites proudly service some of Australia’s largest and well known bus and coach manufacturers, as well as provide composite components and product solutions to a range of industries including transport, marine and boating, architecture and building, and caravan and camper manufacturing sectors.
