In 1991, Bracha Horovitz and her late husband Zvi Horovitz drew upon their expertise as textile engineers and their military backgrounds to launch Federal Fabrics-Fibers. Today, the Horovitz’s company is the world’s most advanced manufacturer of Air Beam Structures. At its state-of-the-art facility in Lowell, Massachusetts, the company designs, develops and manufactures unique woven and non-woven products to the highest standards of the military and to the specifications of customers worldwide. Federal Fabrics-Fibers’ in-house laboratory, engineers, design center, machine shop and assembly plant allow this innovative company to create and deliver advanced products and solutions.
Since Bracha and Zvi launched the company over 20 years ago, Federal Fabrics-Fibers has grown tremendously, with annual sales now exceeding $5 million. Today, the woman-owned small business employs 45 people and subcontracts with several other businesses to support production. Federal Fabrics-Fibers prides itself for being a major player not only in research & development efforts, but also in the actual production of advanced products for the U.S. military and in the private sector. The company looks forward to continued growth in the years to come and actively seeks new opportunities for involvement in military and homeland security programs.
“As I work toward my goal of becoming a world leader in the air beam self-deployed shelter industry, involvement in the NEC has been incredibly useful in helping our company connect with other businesses in the region, as well as with our region’s leaders in Washington, DC,” Bracha said.
