Orr Felt has been made in Piqua, Ohio since 1848. In 1901, Orr and Son bought one of the felt companies and reorganized it as the Orr Felt Company where they manufactured blankets and other felt items. During World War II, The Orr Felt Company produced about 250,000 blankets for the Army and Navy.
In 1964, under new owner Dimitri P. Nicholas, the company reorganized and replaced old machinery with modern production equipment. In 1990, Nicholas sold the company to his family. Today, his son, Dimitri M. Nicholas was president and retained sole ownership of the company until its closing in 2016.
