John Horsfall Welcomes Orvec into the Group

We believe that ‘In life, it’s not where you go, it’s who you travel with’, and we are very proud to be bringing the Orvec brand into the John Horsfall group.

Orvec specialises in non-woven airline products

Orvec has been well known in the travel catering industry as a highly respected provider of in-cabin textile products with a particular focus on non woven items.

The acquisition of Orvec will allow John Horsfall to further diversify our product range, to the benefit of all our clients, old & new.

As our customers know, we strive to provide exceptional service, helping to make every passengers experience extraordinary. The addition of innovative non woven goods to our portfolio enables John Horsfall to offer this same service in high-volume economy cabin comforts.
