Ferrabyrne

Ferrabyrne is a business that develops and manufactures technical service systems and rubber-to-metal components. It was born in 1970 through the merger of Ferring Rubber & Plastics Ltd with Byrne Moulding & Engineering, both of which were established in the decade prior. Over its 45 years of operation, it has become a market-leading supplier to global rail businesses, including Bombardier, Hitachi, Siemens and London Underground.

Headquartered in Littlehampton, West Sussex, the business employs 73 people there and across the globe.

YFM Equity Partners backed a £5 million management buyout in November 2016.
