Explosive growth in demand for bamboo
There was no time for the MOSO® team to recover from the fire on 21 February 2020 and the developments that followed. The demand for bamboo products, especially decking and cladding, exploded when many Europeans started to invest their money in and around the house. For consumers as well as for commercial and public building projects, sustainable and bio-based materials have been playing a bigger role in recent years. The technical advantages of the material ensure that partners and installers continue to choose bamboo products. Despite the fire, 2020 was a very successful year for MOSO®, partly thanks to the understanding and patience of customers and the enormous efforts of employees, which enabled orders to be delivered later in the year and in larger volumes. Turnover continued to increase in 2021, when other materials became scarcer and the demand for bamboo outdoor products also exceeded supply. In the meantime, substantial investments were made in the production sites in China, so that customers can expect the reliable delivery they have come to expect from MOSO® this year.
