Thos. Moser recognized for leadership in promoting sustainability


For their June 2008 issue, World Trade Magazine's cover story features a list of some of the top companies in the world. They describe it as their "annual eclectic list of the companies, people and places who are pushing the global trading community forward. The ways are various, the results innovative. This year’s winners, selected by our editors and contributors, all satisfy the critical criterion: their efforts make the global supply chain more sustainable."

Thos. Moser is listed alongside such influencial people, companies, places and ideas as Warren Buffet, Henry Paulson, Google, Japan, e-auctions, the US Marines, carbon-neutral shipping and many others.


Here is the entry about Thos. Moser:

Thos. Moser, an American Furniture Maker
Of the many U.S. manufacturing industries that have been impacted by globalization, the furniture industry has been hit particularly hard. Foreign competition, mainly from China, has trimmed more than 120,000 furniture industry jobs nationwide since 2000—about one-third of the industry’s U.S. workforce. But Tom Moser, a furniture maker located in Maine, has consistently proved that U.S. consumers will support expertly skilled American craftsmen and classic design (and pay a premium for it). In fact, when it comes to high-end luxury products, U.S. craftsmen and designers are still at the top of their game.

World Trade Magazine also published a feature about Tom and the company (written by Lara Sowinski who was kind enough to join us for our LA Showroom opening), which ran as the cover story back in October, 2002, CLICK HERE TO READ IT.
