How we work
Developed in Europe, produced in China
MOSO® develops and creates bamboo products for interior and exterior applications that meet the highest technical requirements and quality standards, enhance the beauty of applications and are made from the sustainable, renewable resource Moso bamboo.
With 25 years’ experience in the relatively young bamboo industry, MOSO® is recognized as the global A-brand in bamboo because of its focus on product quality, innovation and sustainability. With an international team and partners in more than 50 countries, MOSO® is continuously looking for new applications and solutions that can be made with the fastest growing plant of the world. The proof is the impressive list of reference projects showcasing endless possibilities with MOSO® Bamboo Products.
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 to 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.
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 far away 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® has always focused on innovation. A famous example is the 2,100,000 square foot 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®.
A project that makes use of MOSO® Bamboo Products offers several advantages compared to wood and other alternative materials, plus MOSO® Bamboo will last for years to come.
