Innovating first-grade textiles

Our success is based on our ability to manufacture fabrics that combine technical properties with innovative design. We often collaborate with customer-development engineers and designers. This ensures that the fabrics produced are first grade, meeting exact performance criteria.

In addition, FOV is very active within the field of Smart Textiles, co-operating with universities, research institutes and high-technology companies in various industries. Together with customers and suppliers we run a number of interesting development projects, focusing on heating, textile sensors and actuators.
