As textile engineer with a specialization in chemistry, and after successful experience in the manufacturing of technical textiles in the space sector, Ludovic OUVRY engaged in 2002 in CBRN personal protective equipment activities, developing systems based on high-tech CBRN technical textiles. Ludovic OUVRY is auditor of the IHEDN (France's Institute of Advanced Studies of National Defence), vice-president and cofounder of Eden cluster (Defense, Safety and Security SMEs Cluster) and reserve officer in the French Air Army.
OUVRY SAS is headquartered in Lyon, in an industry area with a long textile industry tradition. This location means we are in the middle of our textile industry sub-contractors (chemical producers, weavers, finishers, etc.) and laboratory partners.
Over the years OUVRY extended its expertise in body protection to respiratory protection and decontamination, through R&D activities in the fields of technical and functional textiles, physiological factors (ergonomics, thermal physiology), CBRN personal protection and decontamination. Our CBRN equipments ensure physiological tolerance and better protection for the users, which makes them the best solution to reduce staff rotation due to their extended wear time.
