Design is at the very heart of our company. Since 1970 we have developed and manufactured decorative mouldings with passion. The enthusiasm for all things beautiful is in our genes, and after all these years ORAC NV is still a family business.
Today Orac supplies our precision engineered mouldings to over 90 countries around the world. We pioneered the use of synthetics technology in the production of decorative elements for inside the home.
Since 2001 we took the bold step to take our expertise for internal mouldings, and created a range of specialist products for use externally in the buoyant UK housing market.
Today we offer our customers the assurance of a leading brand, a 10 year warranty *, with most of our products available on a 2 to 3 day lead-time!
