ideas take shape

Scabro specializes in state-of-the-art prototyping, tooling, and series production of lightweight and beautifull composite components.By blending craftmanship with extensive composite knowledge, flexibility and innovation, we meet the volatile demands of the emerging autonomous uav sector, and proudly serve the supercar and superyacht industries.

We deliver services for


We offer exceptional prototyping services with an emphasis on quality, speed and cost-effectiveness. Together we co-design, meeting our customers specifications, integrating low-weight and complex geometries while anticipating the future manufacturing process.

UAS Prototypes

Our clients value our the high-quality prototypes that closely match their design specifications. For Scabro this automatically  includes attention to detail, accuracy, and the ability to integrate complex geometries while considering the future production process 

Speed and Efficiency

Time-to-market is critical for many businesses. Scabro offers rapid prototyping and quick turnaround times, allowing our customers to iterate and refine their designs promptly.

Technical Expertise

Our team of composite technicians and skilled aeronautical engineers, specialized in materials and automation are highly valued by our clients. All have a university of applied science composites background and hands on experience, which often result in great practical solutions!  

Range of Services

We offer a wide range of prototyping services, including in-house additive manufacturing (3D printing), CNC machining, infusion, and many more techniques that we can offer through partners in our worldwide “plastics” network that we started building in 2007. This versatility allows us to choose the most suitable prototyping method for any specific project needs.

Scabro has extensive, decades long, experience and expertise in the supply, design and manufacturing of composite tooling for fiber reinforced plastic (FRP) components.

An efficient composite production line can not excist without quality tooling. Having the knowledge and capability to produce our own masters, mould, jigs and fixtures gives many advantages such as controlling the quality, speed, flexibility and costs. Only high quality and effective tools allow for the production of high-quality and effective composite parts.

Expertise in Composite Tooling

Decades of developping and serving the tooling & composite market in North-West Europe made us a specialist in a vast network of experienced modelmakers. This results in creative, sustainable, precise, and reliable molds and tools.

Design and Engineering

Our tooling designs are always cutting-edge, cost-effective and have high manufacturability and performance. We use all major available CAD/CAM software throughout the whole design and manufacturing process.


While quality is paramount, we guarantee tooling solutions that offer good value for money on the long run while always ensuring dimensional accuracy and surface finish requirements.

Quality Materials

High-quality tooling is essential when producing composite components with consistent quality and performance. We work with the world's largest producer of high-performance styling, modeling, and working boards. These stand for high quality "made in Germany“ and excellent mechanical properties.

Collaboration and flexibility

We like to collaborate. This could result in us assisting in the production of high-end prepreg tooling in your facility, or we train your team in our workshop or at one of our global partners.

Small series production

It begins with an ideaBut designers often have a long way to go before a perfect composite part is made in a cost-efficient productionline. Here at Scabro we aim to produce aerospace quality at automotive pricing. Want to to know how we succeeded in disrupting the conservative aerospace, automotive and superyacht industry? Get us in as soon as you have an idea, or even as late when having sold your prototype and you need to scale up fast!

High volume production

We produce aerospace quality at automotive pricing. At Scabro we know that designers have a long way to go before a perfect composite part is made in a cost-efficient manufactoringline.

Production process

step 1.

By establishing a large-scale board production facility. Scabro standardized manufacturing processes, implemented quality controls, and began developing new and innovative surfboard building techniques. Scabro’s ability to mass product and export into the world market has allowed for a rapid growth for its OEM customers as well as through its own brand.

Scabro is born

Founder Jaap Ruwaard starts serving the Benelux area by distributing epoxy resins and toolingboartds for a German / Swiss manufacturer. The following years the portfolio quickly grew serving both the Tooling & Composite markets.


Composites Innovation Event

Simultaneously with the 5-year anniversary, Scabro organized the “Composites Innovation Event”: Together with 40 international industry leaders we welcomed more than 300 composite enthousiast, getting them up to date on the latest innovations in composites.


Start of production

After moving to its current facility, Scabro started to experiment with innovative materials, intensifying the relationships with many R&D departments of international suppliers. Our lab turned out to be a perfect incubator for small series production such as the world first “Recycled Carbon Chair” on display in several musea worldwide.


Worldwide network

With a Holland-based team of 25 people, a fully fitted aviation grade composite workshop, a gigantic international network consisting of raw material manufacturers, engineering companies, tooling specialist, composite innovators and visionairs, Scabro has its spotlight on providing cutting edge, turn-key solutions for massproducing composite airframes for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).
