|Moss' History of Innovation|
The story of Moss begins with a 20th century visionary: Bill Moss, an artist and industrial design wizard who invented the technology of "tensioned fabric". Bill designed and patented the first "pop-up" tent in 1955. In 1983, Moss brought its expertise in curvilinear designs in lightweight fabric and frame to the Outdoor Retailer Show as a backdrop for their products. The display caused a stir in the industry, as exhibitors recognized the advantages of a lightweight, easily assembled and disassembled solution.
A passion for innovation has continued to move Moss ahead. Moss increased its manufacturing capability by acquiring Exhibit Architecture in 2002, located outside Chicago, and in 2006 opened a rental depot in Las Vegas. In 2007, Moss partnered with Nichols Inc., a company with its own history pioneering printing on fabric. The combination of Nichols' premier printing and Moss' exceptional engineering in crafting custom tensioned fabric structures allowed the company to significantly increase its production capacity and product offerings to all the markets that it serves.
The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) awarded Pink Powered by Moss an International Achievement Award for an outstanding specialty fabric project. Pink Powered by Moss won an Outstanding Achievement Award in the Fabric Art category for Fish fabricated for the Outside Lands Music and Arts Festival.
