MOSO®: World leading in bamboo

With 20 years’ experience in the relative young bamboo industry, MOSO International is the pioneer in innovative bamboo solutions for indoors and outdoors. MOSO® is recognised as the global A-brand in bamboo because of its focus on sustainability, product quality and innovation.

our vision:
“to become the world’s leading company in high quality bamboo solutions for durable indoor and outdoor applications”

MOSO® principle 1: sustainability

ecology is more than a fashionable statement

We believe MOSO® bamboo is one of the most promising alternatives in the required shift to a sustainable society. It grows faster than any other plant in the world, yet has hardwood like properties. These qualities make MOSO® bamboo the ideal alternative for tropical hardwood.

You may wonder, how sustainable is a product made in China, shipped all the way to the market? MOSO has put a lot effort in actually proving the ecological soundness of its products. All green claims are backed up by impact studies such as carbon footprint & LCA and eco-labels (BREEAM, LEED, FSC etc.) from independent institutes. Further reduction of our ecological footprint is an on-going process.

MOSO® principle 2: product excellence

product quality is crucial for the acceptance of a relative new product like bamboo

A key precondition for MOSO’s success has always been its control over the production process. This has never been easy because the production takes place in faraway China in a new industry. By establishing a professional organization there, the quality and availability of the MOSO® products is always safeguarded. Unlike many other European companies sourcing in China, our inspectors inspect more than just the end product. They are involved in the production process from A to Z. Production in ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified facilities further guarantees compliance with strictest health, safety and environmental regulations. MOSO® International BV gives, depending on the type of product, a product guarantee for a period of up to 30 years.

MOSO® principle 3: innovation

innovation is the key for bamboo as a mature, hardwood alternative

MOSO has always focused on innovation. A famous example is the 200.000m2 curved ceiling panel for the Madrid airport, until today the largest bamboo project in the world. Here MOSO was the first to come up with a flexible, fire resistant bamboo board. Since we started in 1997 it was clear that for a lot of applications the right bamboo product did not yet exist. Based on the unique, versatile qualities of this resource, MOSO has always played a leading role in developing new solutions in bamboo. Another example is the technology to treat bamboo for outdoor use: MOSO® Bamboo X-treme®.

“The ceiling consists of 100mm wide planks of multi-layer MOSO® bamboo veneer. The visual qualities of this material imbue T4 with its very special character. Bamboo has the added benefit of being very sustainable”
