Zvi J. Horovitz and Bracha Horovitz established Federal-Fabrics-Fibers, Inc. in 1991. Together, Zvi & Bracha provided the US government with superior, innovative woven and non-woven products to aid War Fighters in combat. Federal-Fabrics-Fibers moved to the Lowell, Massachusetts facility in 2000 and have been giving back to their local community ever since.
Federal-Fabrics-Fibers has developed a family of AirBeam supported tents and shelter systems ranging in width from 15’ to 30’ (4.6 to 9.1m) and lengths from 16’ to 45’ (4.9 to 13.7m). Some of these tents were developed as part of the Future Medical Shelter System (FMSS) development program with the USA Medical Material Development Activity and Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center (MMDA & RDECOM). Federal-Fabrics-Fibers has commercialized the high pressure air beam supported shelter systems and has been supplying the US government with systems and sub-systems since 1994.
Over 300 AirBeam supported (CBPSS) shelter systems have been fielded by the US Army. Additionally Federal-Fabrics-Fibers has fielded dozens of other fully integrated systems with AirBeam supported Shelters attached. These systems have been in the field for over two years in a very aggressive desert climate.
Federal-Fabrics-Fibers is still the AirBeam supplier of choice for the CBPS program which is ongoing and is now in it’s 4thgeneration as the CBPS-M4 version.
