INTERWEAVE WELCOMES BRITISH HEALTHCARE MANUFACTURING COMPANY ORVECARE INTO THE GROUP
September 16, 2021
Interweave Textiles Ltd is pleased to announce the addition of Orvecare, a Hull-based healthcare and emergency services supply manufacturer, operating since 1976, after purchase was completed at group level. Orvecare, using the knowledge of over 40 years' manufacturing experience and with the aid of qualified clinicians, have designed a range of cost-effective products to aid with patient and clinician safety.
The full range of Orvecare’s products include the patented passive warming blanket, Orvewrap+ which has been tested under clinical review in NHS hospitals and found to achieve a high degree of compliance with the WHO standard for patient temperature management.
During the peak of the Covid pandemic in 2020, Orvecare developed a production system to manufacture Type IIR face masks on-site in Hull. Having now purchased this UK PPE production unit, this enables Interweave to be able to offer this vital product range in greater volumes and with a more reliable supply to NHS Trusts and other healthcare providers.
Interweave Textiles are ensuring the continuity of service to enable existing Orvecare customers to continue to receive the full range of products and services they rely on.
Charlie Benson, General Manager at Interweave Textiles, commented “This is a fantastically positive acquisition for our business, with many synergies in terms of product area & customer base. Interweave will retain Orvecare’s UK & China production and sales capabilities; with all order processing & account management coming in-house at Interweave’s Elland HQ”.
