About Us

Our History

Zvi and Bracha Horovitz established Federal-Fabrics-Fibers, Inc. in 1991. Together, they provided the US government with superior, innovative woven and non-woven products to aid warfighters in combat.

Federal-Fabrics-Fibers moved to the Lowell, Massachusetts facility in 2000 where they developed a family of AirBeam-supported tents and shelter systems 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).

In 2022, Federal-Fabrics-Fibers was acquired by HDT Global, a leading manufacturer and integrator of highly-engineered unmanned, platform, and expeditionary solutions across defense, aerospace and government markets.

Our Reach

Position In Market

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 it is now in it’s 4th generation as the CBPS-M4 version.

OUR Reputation

what our clients say

“The “Soft Shelters” provided by Federal Fabrics are impressive in their ability to self-inflate without sacrificing strength and resistance to deep snows, heavy rains, strong winds or even intense heat. Designed with the military in mind, the shelters are ready to meet the needs of first responders and evacuees needing protection from the elements.”

“One person setup is great! We had them up for weeks without needing to refill with air. Super reliable and rugged!”

“With the current concerns regarding bio-terrorism, pandemic influenza, and large scale emergencies, the need for a mobile shelter that could provide a chemically and biologically safe location became apparent to local public health departments in the regions. The shelter can function as a medical triage site, and influenza specialty care unit, a dirty bomb shelter, or a portable emergency operations center.”

Sandy Collins

R.N., Director of Health Care Services Westford, MA

“The high quality construction of the “READY SHELTER” is not compromised by the speed and ease by which it can be erected. Clearly, there is an obvios potential for use of these shelters by members of the public safety community, i.e., emergency response teams, police and/or fire departments.”
