Interweave Textiles, a UK-based healthcare textiles supplier, has announced the acquisition of healthcare and emergency services supply manufacturer, Orvecare. Using the knowledge of over 40 years’ manufacturing experience and with the aid of qualified clinicians, Orvecare has designed a range of cost-effective products to aid with patient and clinician safety.
The range of Orvecare’s products include the patented passive warming blanket, Orvewrap+ which has been tested under clinical review in NHS hospitals, according to the British firm. The tests found that the products 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,” the company further added.
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.
“This is a fantastically positive acquisition for our business, with many synergies in terms of product area and customer base. Interweave will retain Orvecare’s UK and China production and sales capabilities; with all order processing and account management coming in-house at Interweave’s Elland HQ,” Charlie Benson, general manager at Interweave Textiles, said in a press release.
