Orved...The Story So Far... Established in 1984 as ORVED di Salvaro Marziano, the company has transformed over the years into a limited liability company and in July 2009, with 25 years of history and success at its back, it became a single member limited company. Orved S.p.A. belongs to a holding owned by long-time partners. The company?s transformation from a one man business into a partnership and then a joint stock company, has defined its history and continual growth; these changes have been prompted by its increasing size, growing number of customers, collaborators and employees and its expansion into national and international markets through the distribution of ORVED products, which are now present worldwide. Since the beginning, the company has focused on the conception, design, construction and development of vacuum, modified atmosphere and protective packaging machines. The first packaging machine designed and created by Orved, called the ORVED VM/13, made history in the external air suction vacuum packaging sector. This machine implemented a redesigned vacuum creation system that, compared with the classic and well-known chamber system, offers several advantages including reduced cost, smaller size, extreme versatility and greater speed. This model was followed by many other types of vacuum machines, which included both those with external suction systems and the traditional chamber system. ORVED has always offered products characterized by the highest level of quality and extremely advanced and innovative technological solutions. ORVED machines are renowned for their reliability and strength; they have become recognized and established after the company?s 25 years of experience in the market worldwide. Each ORVED machine is built in compliance with the strictest international regulations, is CE certified and the company is ISO 9001:2000 certified both for the production of packing machines and vacuum bags. All machines come with a warranty and ORVED offers quick and professional support through its international presence and importers and distributors. ORVED products are characterized by completely stainless steel structures as well as vacuum vessels and all other features, even the smallest screw, constructed in metal, thus ensuring the solidity of the machines. Four rounded angles on chamber vacuum machines and easy and secure removal of welded bars guarantee simple and safe cleaning. Some models include exclusive features protected by international patents that ORVED obtains for its most important innovations. ORVED boasts a range of vacuum packaging machines and prices that can be defined as the most complete in the market sector. For many years, ORVED has also designed and produced thermosealing machines for thermosealing or the atmospheric modification of containers. ORVED holds exclusive patents for these machines as well. ORVED has recently decided to develop a specific ?packing? line that will include double chamber vacuum packaging machines, conveyor belt vacuum packers, thermoshrinking tunnels and thermoforming machines. The company is represented in the national market by distributors, agents and sub-agents and participates directly in the most important national and international trade fairs in the sector. The company?s international branches include: ORVED France, ORVED Espa¤a, ORVED Romania, ORVED Tunisie, ORVED Brasil with a connected production site for the South American market, ORVED China and the soon to open, ORVED USA. In the remaining countries ORVED works with its own importers, which also provide training and product support. For many years now, thanks to its machines and vacuum bags that are exclusively ?made in Italy?, ORVED has implemented the ?ORVED SYSTEM? which involves the production of machines and materials and training in the new technologies developed at its research center, such as vacuum cooking, as well as instruction from its specialized chefs. ORVED produces and distributes for both the professional and domestic markets. ORVED attributes its success, first of all, to its devoted customers who have offered the company their loyal support by choosing its products. Sincere thanks also go to all direct and indirect collaborators. ORVED pledges its continual dedication to high quality, research, innovation and training so as to consistently offer the best results to each of its customers and collaborators and to build a definitive point of reference and excellence for machines and materials in the vacuum packaging and vacuum cooking sectors.
