The Renowned ORCA Fabrics

In 2009, after several decades of growth, the Pennel & Flipo group launched new product ranges for the advanced maritime industry and security.

This expansion was marked by the opening of a factory in Mouscron, Belgium, giving birth to ORCA.

ORCA Retail supplies RIB owners and repair professionals across Europe with a comprehensive range of products essential for repairing, replacing, or customizing their RIB floats.

This includes CSM neoprene fabrics, adhesive and hardener, maintenance items, liston, and flexible tanks.

A recent ORCA customer provided a 5-star review. Here’s what they had to say:

Serious and fast shipping. I received my order quickly. The new Orca fabric that can be glued without sanding is a great way to reduce assembly time, good invention!

These ORCA fabrics, all crafted in Belgium, are available:
