When COVID-19 pandemic arose, FOV Fabrics decided to put their savoir-faire and production into the fight against the virus. They filled in the EURATEX matchmaking tool and have been contacted by more than 10 companies from Italy, Romania, Spain and France. Within few days from the submission of the form, some of these contacts developed into orders to produce gowns.
