About Us

HOW DID WE START

Founded in 2000, FiberBuilt Umbrellas, Inc. was established with the goal of producing the most innovative and durable umbrellas on the market. We saw the shortcomings of steel and wood ribbed umbrellas and understood the needs that hoteliers, restaurateurs and homeowners had for durable umbrellas that would hold up to harsh weather conditions.

Our Advantage

BUILT FOR COMFORT

There are many design elements and component materials that make FiberBuilt’s umbrellas both unique and superior. FiberBuilt’s state of the art fiberglass ribs are both strong and resilient. They hold up to the harshest winds, salt air and driving rain without losing their shape or weakening.
