Mandaue Foam: Beds and more for our home
This is part of the series of articles promoting local companies and products to raise awareness on its positive impact to the local economy. In some progressive countries, a well developed manufacturing sector is one of the drivers of their economic growth with the likes of Samsung of Korea, Red Bull of Thailand, Asus of Taiwan, Ikea of Sweden, and many more. It is just the right thing to do to support our own.
Now let’s talk about beds, life and a local manufacturing company that needs our attention. Accordingly, one of the most essential items to buy when you are starting out in life is a good bed because it is where you spend half of your life with. With that in mind, it is undeniable that we all strive to have comfortable sleep and it is achievable of course with a good bed. One home grown company is helping us with it and I am referring to no other than Mandaue Foam, the local manufacturer of foams commonly used in beds that are distributed nationwide. As a Cebuano by blood or by heart, any mention of “Mandaue Foam” will make you think of beds or foams and a good relaxing sleep.
Mrs. Rosita T. Uy started Mandaue Foam in 1971 as a foam manufacturer in Cebu. It has rapidly grown over the past 40 years and it is now one of the country’s top corporations. With several factories and showrooms nationwide and counting, its trademark products include the signature Flex Foam and Gala Bed Mattress.
Anticipating the people’s need for more complete home store, Mandaue Foam began expanding and diversifying its product lines to include pillows, sofas, dining tables, bed frames, and other home fixtures. Today, Mandaue Foam continues to augment its product lines and innovate by offering customized furniture. They have also expanded to the neighboring islands and provinces and even setup showrooms in Manila, the capital city.
Yes, Mandaue Foam started in Cebu. It has contributed to the local economy by employing hundreds of workers and spurred strings of businesses for its supply chain. The company as a brand has become synonymous with good beds which is recognized nationwide that we Cebuanos should be proud of and support.
